peace with Syria is the key to peace in the middle east for some reasons: - palestinian, lebanese and syrian arabic languages are the same, probably because they have been sharing the same history for the last several centuries (at least since the start of ottoman empire). This is likely to make syrian feel, even if they do not say it for strategic reasons, that palestine is theirs - syria as a country and as individuals, is the toughest and bitter ennemy of israel, as constantly noted by many israelian soldiers who fought on syrian front - syria is the last neighbour of Israel not to have made peace, and it is making a war with Isral through every country or organization it can If Israel makes peace with Syria, it is the end of the israeli-arab-palestinian conflict. Bravo Yatom!
