Arabs press Syria to end support of Hezbollah

Arab diplomats are pressing Syria to stop backing Hezbollah. And Syria indicates it is willing to enter talks with the US to initiate a cease fire in Lebanon, according to Ha'aretz. Syria and Spain are working toward a package that would include a prisoner swap, and a return of the Golan Heights as part of the deal. It was unlikely that Israel would agree to such a deal, but the remarks were the first indication of Syria's willingness to be involved in international efforts to defuse the Lebanese crisis.

And Prime Minister Olmert, and Defense Minister Peretz, agree that a NATO lead peace force in Southern Lebanon would be acceptible.

Betmo, the problem is that Israel knows how weak the US has become diplomatically. I'm truly sick over this war, I can't even begin to tell you.
