Syria doesn’t mince words

Recently I suggested that the Arab League ‘peace’ initiative is being presented as an ultimatum: accept it as written, or face war. Now the Syrian information minister states this about as clearly as possible:

“If Israel rejects the Arab League peace proposal, resistance will be the only way to liberate the Golan Heights,” warns Syrian Information Minister Muhsen Bilal, at a press conference in Damascus Monday.

The minister explained that Syria had an interest in renewing talks with Israel with support from America and Russia. “Syria wants to reach a fair, comprehensive peace,” he added. However, he also stated that “any nation living under occupation has the prerogative to resist. In Lebanon, Palestine and Iraq, we must liberate all occupied Arab land.” — YNet
