Syria says it wants peace with Israel in order to win points with the international community, while continuing to aid Hizbullah, Hamas and other terror groups, Vice Premier Silvan Shalom said on Thursday morning, casting doubt on Syrian President Bashar Assad's comments Wednesday that his country was interested in peace. "As far as it concerns us in Syria we have national support to continue talks with Israel," Assad had said on Wednesday after meeting Croatian President Stipe Mesic. Speaking on Israel Radio, Shalom pointed out that Syria enables arms from Iran to be smuggled to Lebanon through its borders and in doing so violates UN Security Council Resolution 1701.
