    A Syrian 'Peace' will make Egypt's look good in comparison. At war with Israel since 1948 but willing to make peace now. Why? Syria just got through supplying hezbollah with every type of missile in its arsenal and after the end of that stage of war are re-supplying them with even more. What does that prove about Syria's intentions? To say 'better give us the Golan or we'll make you suffer' is not a basis for peace. Syria doesn't even know the meaning of the word 'peace' as far as Israel is concerned. They probably translate it like Hamas does - 'hudna'. Syria is at least 10 years away from even talking about peace but only if in those ten years they change. If not keep adding ten years.
