Currant Relations between Israel and Syria

Posted by Atilla89 on July 11, 2007

War is looming on the horizon between Syria and Israel. I hope it doesn’t get to this but since we’ve got Olmert as PM, I’m not sure what the hell is going to happen anymore. To stop turning this into a rant against Olmert, I’m going to shut up now and give you the link to Daniel Pipes blog: http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/755

Here are some key parts to the blog:

The talk of war and negotiations simultaneously points to the extraordinary instability and fluidity these days of Syrian-Israeli relations. Under severe pressure for his government’s and perhaps his personal role in the murder of Rafiq al-Hariri, Syria’s Bashar al-Assad is desperately trying to change the subject. But his ambivalence in not knowing whether to change it to war or peace showcases his limitations as a leader. As I keep saying, let’s hope he was a better ophthalmologist than he is a dictator.

As for Ehud Olmert, he proved himself to be such a terrible military chief last year in Lebanon that a Syrian intifada on the Golan Heights now looms as a real possibility. And his severe political unpopularity makes him receptive to negotiations that a stronger Israeli prime minister would scorn.

Bottom line is that Olmert sucks as a PM
