A peace with Israel is in the best interests of Assad.
Apparently never has been, or he'd have had peace as soon as the Syrian law was altered to make it possible for him to inherit his father's throne.
Make Lebanon 80% Christian again.
Looks like Assad is abandoning his Shiite allies in Iran and Lebanon. Interesting, and I wonder if it isn’t being prompted by Trump’s peace deals between Israel and the Gulf States.
Syria's been a quaqmire for all involved, but Assad's stuck with it, so getting the occupiers (Iran, Iran's proxies, Turkey, Russia) out may have overcome his idealogical Arab racism.

He looks a lot like Gett Smart.
Maybe, if he talked into his shoe phone...
Oh wow... and Bibi looks like The Chief...
Interesting that Syria is making some overtures.
I wonder how serious they are because Hezbollah and Iran have such a foothold in that country. I can’t imagine the Syrian govt being brave enough to risk the wrath of the two groups that helped save it during the civil war.
Time for the Cone of Silence.
Melania must be 99.
Nope, that wasn’t possible before the Arab spring

Unlikely to get a yes from Israel as long as (1) Iran has forces in Syria, (2) Iran keeps supplying Hezbollah with missiles, stockpiled in Israel, and (3) as long as Assad can’t continue in power without the support of Hezbollah.
Even Russia cannot break the Assad-Hezbollah convergence, because Russia is not going to get into a ground war with Hezbollah in Syria, and now, with near universal Syrian Sunni rejection of Assad, without Hezbollah Assad is toast, a clear Russian puppet.
