Syria hosts the exiled head of Hamas, and has done so for years. Syria arms Israel’s enemies in Lebanon, and has done that for years. Syria regularly holds what is, in effect, conventions of terrorists so that they may plot against Israel.
And Ehud Olmert says he’ll hold peace talks with Syria with no preconditions. There’s no need for Syria to cease aiding and abetting the murder of Israelis before Israel will officially talk about giving back the Golan Heights.
“We want to make peaceâ€¦ we are willing to make peace with Syria unconditionally and without demands. I have a lot of respect for the Syrian leader and the Syrian policy,” Olmert said in a meeting with Russian reporters at his Jerusalem residence.
This follows a statement by Olmert on how much he “respects” Bashar Assad. Really? Respects a mass-murderer of Israelis and Lebanese, as well as a man who contributes to the murder of Americans?
What is wrong with this man? And what is wrong with Israelis that they can’t get a no-confidence vote on him and give someone else a chance to run the nation? He “respects” a murderous dictator who is trying to destroy Israel? I’m sorry, but Godwin’s Law is simply begging to be invoked here.
