Syrian envoy calls to end state of war with Israel
al Bawaba ^ | July 29 2008

Syria's ambassador to the United States on Monday was quoted as calling for ending the "state of war" with Israel. "We offer the big thing ? let's sit together, make peace and finish once and for all this state of war. What could be better than that?"

"We desire to recognise each other and end the state of war," Imad Mustafa told a gathering of activists in Washington allied with Israel's Peace Now movement, in comments aired on Israeli army radio.

"Here is then a grand thing on offer. Let us sit together, let us make peace, let us end once and for all the state of war." The Syrian official added however that any peace agreement would depend on an Israeli pullout from the occupied Golan Heights. "The negotiations are a historic opportunity for Israel to make peace, not just with Syria and Lebanon, but with the whole Arab world," Mustafa stated.

I wasn't aware that Israel had been the one who attacked its neighbors first...

In other words, “We won’t attack you if you first give up land that makes you much, much more vunerable to attack.” Sure.

Note to Israel:

The Japanese were still engaged in ‘sincere’ peace negotiations with the United States just before their sneak attack at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Watch out.

What a deal!

All the Israelis have to do is withdraw from the Golan and the ENTIRE Arab World will make peace with them!

I had never before thought Hamas, Hezzbollah, all the murdering Palestinians and the Jew-Haters in Iran would become so reasonable and so easy to deal with. But here is the proof!

It sounds almost too good to be true.

Right. Peace. So when Hezbollah attacks Israel from Lebanon (supplied with rockets thru Syria), Syria can just sit back (on the Golan Heights no less) and say: “Hey, don’t blame us, we’re at peace—remember?”
