    Call me whatever you wish but I sincerely believe that Syria wants peace talks, but is interested in a peace deal, even if it gets all of the Golan up to what it took in 1949. The reason why I say this is because regimes like Assad are more concerned with stability and control of power. This protracted cold war with Israel serves Syria well they can blame social issues on their conflict with Israel (stability) and the regime justifies its 1963 emergency laws, which give suspends the constitution and hands it all to Assad (control of power). Peace with Israel will be greeted with great joy among the Syrian population as it will restore lost territory and pride, but soon that will lead to the public demanding a return to the constitution and better services. I do not think there is anything the west can willingly (and morally) give to Assad which will serve him better than this cold war with Israel.
