|Negotiations on a peace agreement between Israel and Syria should start immediately, for the benefit of both peoples, Syrian legislators told Kadima MKs Majallie Whbee and Amira Dotan in Jordan on Sunday.
The Kadima lawmakers were attending a forum of parliamentarians from several Middle Eastern countries, including Syria, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia and Algeria that was organized by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation. Whbee said there was a consensus among representatives from all the countries to return to the negotiating table and end violence and terror.(link)

It's too bad that the Syrian delegation has no authority (Syria is run exclusively by the President and his Baath party). It sounds like they are truly ready for peace. Of course, Israel would have to be careful as the middle eastern countries have talked peace before and there is still not peace in the middle east.
Israel must look for any means to establish peace simply because the 'international' world will not allow it the one way to guarantee peace. Militarily, Israel could and has defeated all of its enemies (hard to call the Hizbollah/Israel war a win/loss for anyone; militarily Israel big, publicly; Hiz) and will continue to do so. The international community should be putting pressure on the other countries and regimes of the middle east to secure peace, instead of stepping on Israels hands every time an arab stubs his toe.
