"Syria wishes to revive the peace process with Israel with the help of US and Russian mediators," the Syrian Information Minister was quoted as saying by Israel Radio, Monday. The minister immediately added a threat that "If Israel rejects the Arab peace initiatives, the only way to get the Golan Heights back would be the way of resistance." The minister was speaking at a press conference in Damascus. Last week, a Syrian-born American businessman, Abe Suleiman, promised the Foreign Affairs and Defense committee of the Knesset that "peace with Syria could be achieved within six months." Syria said Suleiman was speaking on his own behalf and was in no way affiliated with the Syrian leadership.
