U.S. confirms intense efforts to restart Israel-Syria peace effortsIsrael has a pattern of dangling peace benefits to neighbors as it makes war plans. The Jewish State does not want to fight a multi-front war. Prime Minister Netanyahu told Palestinian and Syrian leaders that a peace agreement could be reached within a year.
U.S. envoy Mitchell, arriving in Damascus Thurs., says Israeli-Palestinian talks could support simultaneous Israeli-Syrian negotiations.
What else might happen within that year? Could it be war? Look for "bomb you back to the Stone Age" threats, as sides are chosen.
