    Assad is resupplying Hizbollah in Lebanon. Begging for peace? Assad's closest ally is Iran, and Iran is calling for the destruction of Israel. Begging for peace? Assad is rearming and expanding the Syrian military force. Begging for peace. Assad has threatened to attack Israel. Begging for peace. It seems to me that he is as much begging for Peace as his father begged for it all those years refusing more than one offer of the 'Golan for peace'. By the way , Segev is one of those who has more sympathy, human feeling for Israel's enemies than for Israel. And this is often the basis of his terrible misreadings of their intentions.
