The Israelis already are signaling that neo-Secretary Pelosi has not made a breakthrough.
A statement just put out by Israeli PM Olmert emphasizes:
although Israel is interested in peace with Syria … [i]n order to conduct serious and genuine peace negotiations, Syria must cease its support of terror, cease its sponsoring of the Hamas and Islamic Jihad organizations, refrain from providing weapons to Hizbollah and bringing about the destabilizing of Lebanon, cease its support of terror in Iraq, and relinquish the strategic ties it is building with the extremist regime in Iran.
Yeah, that will happen any minute now, I’m sure.
What was communicated to the U.S. House Speaker does not contain any change in the policies of Israel, as was communicated to other foreign leaders.
