Didn't Arafat or some other Palestinian use the breakdown of talks with Israel as an excuse to launch a violent uprising in the past? Something like "We didn't get what we wanted, so we are going to start attacking you."... Israel should make Syria agree publicly and state to the world that even if there is no progress made through the talks, they will not use that as an excuse to launch any sort of violence against Israel. I think that is reasonable.
