NPR's Kate Seelye in Beirut reports the Arab summit, which opens tomorrow in the Lebanese capital, is expected to focus largely on a Middle East peace initiative put forward by Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Abdullah. The Saudi leader first unveiled the proposal last month, saying the Arab world should be prepared for peace and normal relations with Israel, if that country withdraws from Arab territory occupied during the 1967 war.
