Assad & Netanyahu: Opposite Ends of the Spectrum

Not that we can really believe this guy, but
Assad:Chances of ME war increasing

By JPOST.COM STAFF 08/01/2010
Syrian president says real peace in the area is getting further away.
Syrian President Bashar Assad says that "real peace in the Middle East is getting further away and the chances of war and violence are increasing."Assad put forward his opinion in a letter published Sunday to honor 65 years since the establishment of the Syrian army.
"Those think that Syria will compromise her principals are mistaken. We understand the price of standing frim and resisting is high but it is still lower than the price of submission," Assad wrote in the letter.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced at a ministerial meeting Sunday that direct negotiations with the Palestinians will begin by the middle of August.Netanyahu added that at this point he had received any Palestinian peace program.
"There is no change in settlement freeze conditions," added Netanyahu.Netanyahu's comments come after Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said that the Palestinians are proposing a detailed peace plan proposal that covers all the core issues.Erekat stated that this proposal is the best one to date and covers issues such as Jerusalem, borders and refugees.
"We presented the proposal to [US Middle East envoy] George Mitchell over two months ago so that he would offer it to [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu, however we still haven't received any answers.
Erekat refused to reveal the details of the plan but said that the Palestinians do not want to disqualify Netanyhau as a partner for peace." I hope that [Netanyahu] will be a partner to peace so that we can reach a solution involving two states for two nations," the chief negotiator said.Erekat also mentioned the letter that US President Barack Obama sent to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas saying that if the Palestinians don't enter direct talks then relations with Washington will be damaged."
The letter did not contain threats, he requested that we enter into direct talks and stand shoulder to shoulder so that we can reach a two state solution," Erekat added.
