    Mr. Levy: this year while SYRIA spoke of peace they rearmed Hezbollah with advanced missiles ,after assuring the United States and the United Nations that they would not do so. They, with the assistance of North Korea ,attempted to develop a clandestine nuclear weapons program and when they were discovered they lied about it to both the United Nations and to the United States; they provided shelter and support for the most extreme elements of Hamas' leadership; they continued their developments of chemical warheads and the missile systems necessary to deliver them. Yes , I grant you that you are right in stating that they talk of peace. The moderates in Fatah and the Palestinian Authority also talked of peace.. At the same time they emphasized that the West Bank would be a Jew-free and East Jerusalem would be Jew-free. A poll 'which reported a majority of Palestinians in favor of a two state solution revealed that a vast majority also favored the two state solution as a step toward one state with the Moslem dominated government. They also claimed that the number of "refugees" now numbers 11 million, all of whom maintain the right to return to what is currently the state of Israel. This is your atmosphere for peace Mr. Levy.
