Peace between Syria and Israel

Reader comment on item: Rethinking the Egypt-Israel "Peace" Treaty

Submitted by Omar Mahmoud (Canada), Nov 22, 2006 at 11:49

Mr Pipes, you pointed out that despite the absence of a peace treaty between Israel and Syria, there has been peace on the border between them. I would argue that this is one of the results of the Camp David Accords since that stopped the Arab militaries' multi-front strategy against Israel, of which Egypt was a key player. Syria cannot wage war on Israel by itself (unlike in the Yom Kippur War), and has thus restrained itself.
