How's that 'engagement' with Syria going Barack?

As the Obama administration goes out of its way to court Syria, the Syrians go out of their way to torpedo any 'peace process' with Israel.
Syria and Libya teamed up Sunday to pressure Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to quit peace talks with Israel and return to violence, delegates to an Arab leadership summit said.

In the wake of that call, Arab leaders gathered at their summit Sirte, Libya on Sunday failed to reach a consensus on whether the Palestinians should resume stalled talks with Israel.

An adviser to the U.S.-backed Palestinian leader quickly rejected the suggestion, calling for the 22 nations represented at the gathering to be realistic. Despite the opposition from two of Israel's longtime foes, the summit had been expected Sunday to renew backing for Palestinian peace talks with Israel.

The Arab League has now scheduled an extraordinary summit for later
this year to tackle issues it had been unable to resolve during its two days of meeting.

A committee of foreign ministers from some member states produced a resolution at the meeting saying that a halt to all settlement activity was necessary for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations to go ahead.

But that decision was not adopted by the full summit and, in a sign of the lack of consensus, Syria's foreign minister said his country would not recognize the document as representing the view of the Arab League.
When does the American ambassador get to Damascus? What other rewards do you have for the Syrians? Moron.

Its interesting how deferential and respectful Obama is towards Assad and how that contrasts with his harsh and brutal treatment of Netanyahu. We can have "engagement" with Damascus but not with Jerusalem.

What could go wrong indeed
