Arab News on Katsav's Invitation
Here's the reaction of Arab News - in their editorial of tomorrow - to Israeli President Moshe Katsav's invitation for Syrian President Bashar Assad to visit Israel:
"To any reasonable and informed observer, the Israeli president’s invitation to Syria for peace talks, coming only days after the Sharon government had announced plans to vastly expand settlements on the occupied Golan Heights, is a joke and a sick one. However, once again this cynical maneuver by the Israelis will have played well to their principal gallery, the Americans, who when it comes to Israel and Palestine, are neither reasonable nor particularly informed."
I think the paper's reference to "Israel and Palestine" is interesting, as in reality the dispute with Syria (like the former disputes with Egypt and Jordan) is separate from the Palestinian issue.
