President in her own mind.
U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in Syria this week to undermine the sitting wartime President, was offered surrender terms by Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. Ms. Pelosi was told that Syria would help the US achieve an "honorable withdrawal" from Iraq but in return the United States must press Israel to return the Golan Heights. Syria backs the latest Arab peace plan that calls for a return of land occupied in the 1967 Middle East war, the creation of a Palestinian state and a "just solution" for Palestinians displaced in 1948. The “Just solution” for displaced Palestinians who chose to leave is the “right of return”, a solution that is suicide for the Jewish state of Israel. Ms. Pelosi said "(Our) meeting with the president enabled us to communicate a message from Prime Minister Olmert that Israel was ready to engage in peace talks as well." What Olmert actually asked her to say was Israel is interested in peace with Syria, but Syria would first have to abandon the path of terror and providing support for terrorist groups. That’s an important point to leave out. According to the state run Syrian press Pelosi seeks to “correct United States foreign policy.” Fortunately for us the Democrats will have to wait till they have the Presidency before they can “correct” United States foreign policy to fit the needs of the enemy.
