    Israel has stated a number of times that it seeks peace with Syria, that Israel is willing to sit down and talk without preconditions. Obviously, Syria has decided that three wars with Israel is enough. The fourth and final war as envisaged by the regime in Tehran has yet to convince the Syrians. The current government under PM Netanyahu is most probably the toughest government yet seen in Israel. We must also understand, only a tough and resolute government that stands up to the vague policies of the gracious president has the respect of all Arab Countries. For some may laugh, yet so is it in the Middle East, for only the strong survive. One must study only the minority governments in the ME and their respective governments. The clincher is, that Washington only knows this far too well, however Democrats are not what the doctor ordered, especially against the Extreme Global Jihad or Russia and China. Good night from snowy Alps.
