Israel Blamed For Ending Syrian Isolation
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- Israel has been blamed for ending the international
isolation of Syria.
Officials said Israel's initiative to renew peace talks with Syria in
2008 was a leading factor in the crumbling of an international effort to
isolate the regime of President Bashar Assad. The officials, responsible for
Middle East policy at the White House and State Department, said the failed
Israeli effort sparked a resurgence by Damascus.
