    The Prime Minister's Office issued a rare "clarification" Wednesday that, in gentle diplomatic terms, contradicted US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's statement in Damascus that she had brought a message from Israel about a willingness to engage in peace talks.

    According to the statement, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert emphasized in his meeting with Pelosi on Sunday that "although Israel is interested in peace with Syria, that country continues to be part of the Axis of Evil and a force that encourages terror in the entire Middle East."

    Pelosi tells Assad: Israel ready to talk

    Olmert, the statement clarified, told Pelosi that Syria's sincerity about a genuine peace with Israel would be judged by its willingness to "cease its support of terror, cease its sponsoring of the Hamas and Islamic Jihad organizations, refrain from providing weapons to Hizbullah and bringing about the destabilizing of Lebanon, cease its support of terror in Iraq, and relinquish the strategic ties it is building with the extremist regime in Iran."

    The statement said Olmert had not communicated to Pelosi any change in Israeli policy on Damascus.

    This is nothing more than a blatant power grab attempt by Speaker Pelosi, but it looks for all the world like it is back-firing into her face .... and possibly onto the Dem candidate for president in '08. She is obviously there on behalf of whoever emerges in that capacity.

    Hm-m-m, the wheel keeps turning.

    Stay tuned.

    "See the irony is what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this $h!t and it's over."

    -GW Bush July 2006


    how can one get Syria to stop doing something without having an open dialog?

    The U.S. already has a Secretary of State. Her name is not Nancy Pelosi; her name is Condaleeza Rice. She serves under the ONE U.S. administration of the U.S. president, who happens to be Geo W Bush. Pelosi going to Syria on her own is like another woman coming into your home when you were a child and having sex with your father.

    She's acting arrogantly. She's doing it to undercut the one administration the U.S. has. And everybody knows it, as Olmert in Israel showed clearly.
