Today's Melbourne Age features a report - ARABS TO TALK PEACE IN ISRAEL - that highlights the importance various Arab governments are placing on the need to deal with the phenomenon of the expanding influence of Islamic extremists in the region underscored by Hamas' violent takeover of the Gaza Strip last month.

It is hoped that the proposed meeting of Israeli diplomats with delegates of the 22-nation Arab League will herald a new era of peace in the region.

One should also add the hope that Amy Teibel's report from Jerusalem will also herald a new era of balanced and rational reporting in the Age on the events that take place in this part of the Middle East.
