Syria is the key

Reader comment on item: Arabs Disavow Hizbullah

Submitted by H. Yazdi (United States), Jul 28, 2006 at 15:02

It is true that Hizbollah is being criticized throughout the world and Iran is the main sponsor of that organization. However, let's not forget the role the Syrians are playing as a conduit for arms and money to Hizbollah.

As Henry Kissinger once said " there won't be a total war in the Middle East withour Egypt and there won't be peace without Syria". There is no real love between Syria and Iran; rather what is going on is marriage of convenience. In other words Syria will come around with enough incentives such as financial assistance and solid resolution of Golan Height situation in exchange for formal peace with Israel..
