CAIRO (Ma’an) – The League of Arab States is considering moving its offices to a capital of another Arab state or elsewhere in Cairo due to the violence there, a source in the league said Saturday.

The official highlighted that the ongoing clashes between Egyptian police and demonstrators in Tahrir Square, Qasr al-Nil and Corniche al-Nil streets pushed the Arab League to hold several sessions to remote hotels or even outside Egypt.

According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia offered to pay $50 million to fund construction of new offices for the Arab League within Cairo.

Arab League officials discussed three potential solutions; to move ministerial meetings to other Arab states, to move Arab League headquarters to another Arab state, or to build a new headquarters in Cairo.

"the Arab League resolved to expel any Arab state which reached a separate economic, political or military agreement with Israel. And then it rested..........

Censoring again Ma'an?? Okay,I'll repeat my previous idea i.e. The Arab League /GCC Gulf-Wahhabi royalty wants to MOVE ITS headquarters to DAMASCUS??? Is that the reward-for petro-royals from Riyadh &Qatar-for funding/arming&sending all their al-Qaeda,al-Nusra,Salafist,capitalist"Islamists"from Saudi,Iraq,Libya,Lebanon etc,to SYRIA to OUST a Shia regime,&put Syria in the 'cozy'hands of Absolutist Wahhabi's?Is that the reward? SYRIA?Just to keep Zionism appeased,&get at Iran? We shall see!

The Arab League is absurd. Why not an English League of all English speaking countries. Ireland and UK, US and Jamaica, Canada and Singapore. All have so much in common.
