Assad has communicated desire for peace negotiations with Israel

Syrian President Bashar Assad is apparently signalling willingness to engage in peace talks with Israel Defence Minister Ehud Barak said Monday.

‘I think we have to examine every option. If it emerges that the Syrian president intends truthfully and is seriously examining this, based on the understanding that peace is mutual, he will find us willing,’ he told an Isreali radio talk show.

Direct Israeli-Syrian peace talks broke off in early 2000 and have never been resumed, although the sides did engage in indirect negotiations – with Turkey as a mediator – some years ago.

Syria demands the return of the Golan Heights, captured in the 1967 Middle East war, as a prerequisite for any peace treaty. But Israeli leaders have officially rejected handing back all of that strategic plateau, which overlooks northern Israel.

Also in the Monday morning radio interview, Barak said Israel needed to strengthen the peace process with the Palestinians, but refused to say whether any new Israeli peace plan was in the offing.

‘Obviously we will look out, in any agreement, for our interests, firstly our security interests. This is worth doing even now with the wave of revolutions in the Arab world,’ he said.

In November 2010, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said there was no possibility of concluding a peace deal with Syria while President Bashar al-Assad remained in power.

“Only a political hypochondriac could say Syria is a partner for peace, certainly under the current leadership,” said Lieberman, who heads the ultranationalist Yisrael Beitenu party, a main partner in Israel’s rightist coalition government.

Lieberman, himself a settler, has been a vocal opponent of any extensions to Israel’s partial West Bank freeze on settlement building which ended in September and brought U.S.-brokered peace talks with the Palestinians to a standstill.

Lieberman added: “It must be clear that the Golan Heights was always a part of Israel.”

    God forbid Lebanon signals that it wants peace negotiations with Israel, we would be treated as traitors and non-arabs and with all sorts of insults. However, the Syrians, the Palestinians, the Jordanians and the Egyptians can seek peace with Israel. Qatar and Morocco can have Israeli commercial delegates…but Lebanon cannot!!!
    Oh I forgot only the Lebanese are ARABS and all the people above are not, or ALL Arabs are traitors (including the Syrians) except the Lebanese, we are not.
    What a shame we have become!!! We allow other nations and governments think and plan for our country! I am disgusted when I see the Syrians seeking peace with Israel with the Golan occupied and we have nothing that prevents us from a peace with Israel (except the arms of HA) and we do not seek this peace.
    Have we become a people of war, of constant instability and disarray? I cannot take the rule of the illegal arms in Lebanon, controlled by foreign nations any more!!!! Enough is enough! Wake up Hizbullah !!!! Syria wants PEACE !!! When are you going to seek PEACE ?????

      Syria use Lebanon as a base to attack Israel using HA and if Beirut is destroyed they are safe in Damascus. They simply don’t care and HA are just an agent to the regime in Iran and Syria

      The idea of hating anyone for being Jewish/Christian/Muslim has no place in government. the idea of a “resistance” is old and outdated. Diplomatic pressure is the key to success in the international arena

    • PROPHET.T

      constantin,
      When Israel is ready to negotiate with good faith,and when it is ready to make peace without imposing its conditions on Lebanon, then negotiation may be justified.As of the way things stand right now, Israel is neither ready, nor willing to live as a normal state in the region,and be a peaceful nation.
      On a personal level, I see no need ,or an obligation to sign a peace treaty with Israel. If and only if Israel is wiling to withdraw from every inch of Lebanon’s territories,and if and only if Israel is willing to respect our sovereignty,and stop being a threat to Lebanon,then I would agree to a non- aggression treaty. We don’t bother them, and they don’t bother us, we don’t spy on them ,and they don’t spy on us.

        Now you are not prophetic at all… The mere mention of peace with Israel from ANY Lebanese party would stir tons of slurs but it is OK for Assad to do so and he is never labelled a traitor.

        • PROPHET.T

          Hannibal, I raised my voice as a Lebanese. Syrians can speak for themselves.My views regarding Israel are only mine.but I stand with what I said to Constantine as far as Israel not willing to be a peaceful country.
          If Assad wants to save his ass from revolutions,by pleasing the united states, I ‘ll tell him that the revolution will hit you before you can sign a peace agreement with Israel.

      Prophet,

      My friend, you who is from the South and who endurered all sorts of wars and occupations not because of your actions but because of the actions of others on your land, should be the first one to seek a just fair peace. Of course we want all of our land untill the last inch, and respect for our sovereignty and independence and most of all get the Palestinians out of Lebanon, and then we should be willing to make peace, but let us be real here, does anybody in Lebanon dare to ask for peace negotiations with Israel, without risking to be insulted to the least or killed to the most. As far as the intentions of the Israelis, I am 100% sure that the Israelis would love to have peace with Lebanon, and have a secure boder with Lebanon and be able to visit the Cedars Land and spend some time in it as tourists. I as a Lebanese, I would love to go to visit the holy land on a pilgrimige.
      Prophet, the Israelis, as you probably know, are educated normal people like you and me who love to live in peace and not be in constant fear and war. It is us who have been brainwashed over decades by the Syrian hegemony not to be able to think for ourselves and not to be able to choose for ourselves what is in our best interest. Syria wants our brains and mouths SHUT. Now that they have left, they found themselves good reliable agents (HA) to continue their plan of indirect control. This is our sad plain reality and HA for personal self motivated interests are executing the Syrian plan. Nothing more complicated than this.

        Very well said….

      • PROPHET.T

        Sorry, Constantine, I disagree that Israel wants the kind of fair and just peace you have in mind.
        I do want peace for Lebanese, and southerners for sure, but not because I want the Israelis to come and enjoy our sky resorts. That is the last thing I want to see; that is not a good reason to seek a peace agreement with Israel.
        Being a southerner, I would not want a peace treaty with those who killed us and destroyed us for years. For years we lived in fear of them, and their killing machine. How do you expect me to reconcile with those who killed thousands and thousands of us? How do you expect me to have peace with those who occupied us for over twenty years, imprisoned thousands of us, oppressed us ,and humiliated us, and yet they call us terrorists because we resisted them? Please ,my friend, this is not a Syrian brainwashing. These things were happening to us before Syria ever entered Lebanon. They were happening to us before the creation of HA or the Khomeini regime. I live in the states, and I’m not a Syrian brain washed person. Open your eyes and heart a little ,my friend.
        My childhood friend, who was a leftist, was imprisoned (was only 20years old) in khyam for 8 years, died under torture, and when his body was release, his eyes were missing. This is one story, and I’m sure there are thousands of them to be told. Again, this is not a Syrian brainwashing or Iranian brain washing. Do not insult me by saying that I’m Brain washed.
        Don’t you think we have a dignity to maintain? Don’t you think Lebanon deserves to be compensated for every tree that was uprooted, every house that was destroyed, every human( symbolic at least, since those who were killed can never be compensated for).Don’t you think we deserve an official apology like the Jews of Germany(rightly so) received ?
        I’m not getting into the Palestinian issue yet. We’ll leave that out for now. I’m talking as a Lebanese only, not as an Arab.
        If one day, Lebanese have a consensus on a fair peace agreement that would satisfy our sovereignty, and integrity, compensate for all losses caused by ISRAEL, I would have to submit to the majority decision. But As a Lebanese I would do everything, legally, possible to boycott everything that is Israeli
        I don’t see the Israeli begging the Lebanese for the kind of peace I described. Lebanon should never agree to the kind of peace Israel tried to impose on Lebanon in 1983.Their idea of peace treaty is one that puts many conditions on Lebanon. Their idea of peace conditions Lebanon to consider those who fought Israel as terrorists. I totally object to that. I would not want an agreement that would consider those who liberated my towns and villages as terrorists.

        Why would you oppose a NON-AGGRESSION AGREEMENT, where both countries do not harm or violate each other’s sovereignty? Why does it have to be a love affair? Why? Good explanation, please.
        Please, don’t come Back telling me that I NEED TO GET OVER MY GREIVENDCES. When it’s all done with, I’ll take less than half the time the Jews took to overcome their grievances with what happened to them at the hand of the German and the rest of the Europeans. I DON’T DESERVE ANY LESS THAN THEY DO. In my field of work, I deal with many American Jews, and some Israelis, I have never been shy to tell them these views whenever the subject comes up, and many of them have a better understanding of my views than many of my fellow Lebanese who I exchange with at this very site. I have many friends who are Jews, I have no hatred to Jews .

      Constantin7 Lebanese dont want peace with Isreal, if that happens what will the people talk about. When Israel bomb Lebanon all raise arms and scream but Israel is not fighting Lebanon it is the Radical groups who point thier guns at them that we keep in our country that they want to rid off. Just as they did when PLO sent rockets south they came in to Lebanon and they will continue to do so as long as we keep these groups with weapons.

      Why cant we have peace and enjoy one of the most beautiful country in the world, with our friend Isreal or Syria.

  • Lebanon is a play card in the hands of Syria & Iran, against Israel, so they need Lebanon stay at war for now. A time may come when they make their own peace treaty at expense of Lebanon, ( i.e. give south Lebanon to gain something else). Lebanon better make their own peace agreement before they find themselves loosers, (better safe than sorry)

  • if you allways do what you allways did,
    you will allways get what you allways got.
    look at the results of the past,,,,pitiful. billions spent on war ,thousands dead,more thousands scarred up or handicapped, yet unhealthy pride and arogance from leaders on all sides involved are so unwilling to do anything different. its time to put the innocent in the front seat as they are the ones paying the price and throw the war mongers in the back of the bus. the results of war make me throw up an i will not return to my own vomit.

      I am Israeli and I have a question for all the Lebanese out there… First of all let me say that I, like most Israelis, are 100% pro-peace and pro land-for-peace. I think having good relations with our neighbors is much more strategic than holding on to the Golan Heights, and I think that in order to deflect criticism from the International community for the Palestine deadlock, Netanyahu, with the blessing of his friend and old army commander Barak, will give up the Golan to Syria in exchange for peace.

      But here’s my question… if we do make peace with Syria, it will certainly involve giving back the Golan Heights, including the Sheba farms. So once Syria takes control again, will Lebanon have any reason not to make peace with Israel? And will the Lebanese, especially with a Pro-Syrian government, be as vocal about regaining the farms from Syria as they were from us? Do you think Assad would be able to convince his puppet government in Lebanon to make peace with us also?

        Eblashko I am Lebanese and I want peace with Isreal and so do many other people.
        But as long as the Lebanese government allows these((( radical islamic groups)))) to carry arms in Lebanon well we will never see this.
        I am sad that I am unable to visit Isreal I do not sleep with hate on my mind I sleep and pray to my lord Jesus to help the people who hold nothing but hate in thier heart.
        Iran is hell bent on destroying peace in the world, they publicly announce it all the time.

  • dear prophet,
    as i told you in the past there are so many things that i like about you (in a non gay way of course lol) you seem intelligent , reasonable and rational . i very much respect the fact that your healing and forgiveness is not going to be an event but a process that requires much time to heal the wounds you and me and everyone sufferes. to a certain extent all humans are abused bysomeone in one way or another. all i want to do is encourage you consider that people on all sides of war suffer and hurt the same way you do . what is important is that non of us get trapped in our reasoning and prepetuate the desire and success of the devil in having us slaughter one another. to kill wolves in the arctic you simply have to stick a sharp knife in the ice and brush some blood on it and when a wolf walks by and smells the blood he starts to lick the sharp knife and as he bleeds he tastes his own blood and continues to lick untill he bleeds to death. it is a simple but effective trap that the devil uses on humans with the emotions of war and the desire to even the score we end up perishing just like the wolf did. i know that you dont know a lot about me , so for the record i am not political, i am no part of any lebanese party , and have never voted in my life. further when i became a us citizen i requested a special amendment to citizenship oath that deleted my obligation to perform military duty against anyone in the world based on spiritual priciples. i did not allways think this way but sometimes a brain wash is a good thing.

    well, i have a bad feeling about this. syria is having peace talks with israel for a long time now. at the same time more weapons are given to hizbollah. so hizbollah will fight against israel and syria will say” hey, we have a peace agreement with israel”. so lebanon will have to fight again a war iran and syria want. and the stupid lebanese will have to pay the price instead of taking care of their own country. it is not our job to rescue palestina or whatever. how can we help others if we don’t have peace in our own country. it is so very obvious that hizbollah isn’t interested in keeping lebanon save. as they once said, for them lebanon is only a part of a more “important” project. they don’t think as lebanese at all. stand up people of lebanon and ask for freedom for your country and your children. @eblashko/ well: this is a question also lebanese people would like to know the answer at.
