So far, the Israeli policy regarding Syria is the one formulated in the Likud 2009 election platform: 1. Israel wants peace with Syria and all Arab neighbors. 2. Likud is pround that the Golan was annexed by Likud initiative. 3. Israel will continue to expand settlements in the Golan. 4. Israel wants peace talks with Syria without preconditions. Apparently, Likud wants peace with Syria while keeping the Golan... Such talks of course will be a waste of time. Netanyahu already changed his position regarding the Palestinians, but he made a speech (June 2006) to inaugurate the new view. If he wants to change his policy towards Syria, he better give a speech himself. Peres is not reliable for such a momentous change.
