he should grow a beard, if for no other reason than to give the appearance he has a chin.
3. Syrian choice between Iran and peace.
Robert Bernier ,   Tel Aviv   (09.04.08)
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad visited Iran, even as Syrian and Israeli negotiators are slated to continue talks. Al-Assad's visit answers the Israeli demand that Syria choose between Iran and peace. Ali Larijani, Speaker of the Iranian Legislative Council, the Majlis, told Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mualem that Iran and Syria both play important roles in thwarting ongoing threats to the Muslim world. Therefore, he called for expanding bilateral cooperation and coordination in light of current regional and global conditions. More about Syria at :

5. We should not publish Asad and Nasrallah's speeches
Joseph ,   NewYork, USA   (09.04.08)
Nasrallah is very smart and knows how to play war against the people of Israel. His speech few minutes ago threatning Israel is all over the internet. We should attack this organisation. Asaad is a big supporter for Hamas and Hezbollah

10. Syria's recognition Crap
Brod ,   USA   (09.05.08)
Israel can tell Syria to go to Hell. Israel does not have to beg for recognition from Syria. In fact, Israel does not need to recognize Syria. Syria is a close ally of Iran that has threatened to annihilate Israel repeatedly. In future war, Syria will be joining their Master-Iran in attacking Israel. Hence, Israel must not be fooled by their peace Taqiyyah which is a tactic to fool Israel into giving its liberated historic Golan Heights to them. Once they get the Golan Heights, they will be placing Iran's heavy armaments such as rocket batteries on the Golan aimed at Israel's farmlands, villages, towns and cities down the valleys. Meanwhile, Israel should stop Turkey and France in advancing Syria's Taqiyyah on Israel. What israel needs now is a strong government to resist all these external interefences on its internal affairs. Most of these external craps are just distractions to occupy Israel from focusing its eyes on Iran's nuke program. Israel must continue to be vigilant and prepared to defend itself from Iran's threats of wiping Israel from the map.
11. "abandoning resistance against occupation in Lebanon"
Zvi   (09.05.08)
Hey, Assad: do you mean the Syrian-Iranian occupation of Lebanon?
12. All or nothing?
Avinoam ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (09.05.08)
You still recognise an enemy's right to exist. Between Peace and Annihilation there is a spectrum of possible relations. I find that talking in absolutes merely projects their insincerity. The other side should at least understand the mistrust we place in them. Small steps before big steps is the only realistic way forward. The smallest step being purely symbolic, our right to exist. "We don't see any interest in abandoning the resistance." This is blatant sponsorship of a terrorist organisation. Where is the international community? Abandoning Hizbullah should be a prerequisite for talks with anyone, and recognising Israel (a ludicrous statement since Israel has been around for a while and is well settled) is a prerequisite for rational dialogue. I agree whole-heartedly with Joe #7. What exactly do we have to gain from this? I don't see peace with Syria having any negative effect on terror or positive effect on our economy, and neither does this have any moral substance. (As opposed to peace with the Palestinians.)
13. Assad certainly has a way with words when it comes to peace
zionist forever   (09.05.08)
I will only recognise israel after an agreement has been reached ( I get the Golan and anything else I demand ) I dont see any interest in abandoning resistance against occupation in Lebanon and Palestine. I am not working towards democracy in syria. Everything the man says shows he has no interest in peacemaking only turning the jewish Golan into occupied territory. The only serious thing he seemed to have had to say when it came to peace making was his desire that a diplomatic peacefull decision be found to solve the problem with his masters in Iran. The man has no interest in peace and the more Olmert runs around begging him to make peace the more he makes Israel look weak and easy to take advantage of which all Israels enemies take advantage of and it makes Olmert himself look like a fool. When are we going to get out of the idea that we must make peace at any price with everybody even if we loose out to make this deal. The Golan is more valuable to `israel than any deals with the Alawite thug
14. Once a terrorist, always a terrorist. LIAR.

15. "Palestine" doesn't exist, dumbass!

Stupid Arab leaders and their psychotic versions of history. Israel existed before the Arab invadors arrived and will continue until they disappear!
16. "We won't recognize Israel" Says Assad
