Israel under Olmert, Peretz and Halutz dont need the Americans to deal with Iran to give up land. The day after the ceacefire in Lebanon was declared Peretz anounces that we should now make peace with Syria and Olmert sets up a commision to investigate this possibility that is the ultimate surender and humiliation. Its Mr oslo Peres of all people who says the time isnt right for doing deals with Syria. Syria and Iran control and arm hezbollah and probably had a role to play in the decision for hezbollah to draw Israel into a war but the response from the Israeli government is lets do a deal with the people responsible for it and reward them with the Golan Heights. It tells hamas and all the other organisations that terrorism works and Israelis just cant be bothered to defend their country anymore they just want the easy life even if it does mean the arabs decide Israels future.
