Hafez Assad was interested in making peace with Israel, and therefore the presumption should be that so is Bashar Assad, unless Mossad has reason to believe otherwise, which it doesn't seem to have. Regarding Hizballah, Syria will agree to put an end to this organization, which also means pulling itself out of Iran's clutches, but only if the US steps in and changes policy from threatening Syria into supporting it as it does Egypt. Syria does not need a militant fundamentalist Hizballah except to cause trouble for Israel and help Iran. A dominant Hizballah can ultimately mean trouble for the secular Syrian too.
