A Conversation With Ehud Barak

Perhaps the most interesting points of the interview are the reference to Syria (below):

A Conversation With Ehud Barak -

"Can you say anything about the raid that Israel waged into Syria, supposedly against a nuclear facility, last September?

Barak: "No.

"Do you think that the Syrian track should be pursued?

Barak: "I think that we have shown . . . a respect for Syria, its interests and its leaders. We expect from them to do the same regarding Israel. If this basic kind of element will be there, I think a Syrian track is . . . potentially positive.

"I thought the U.S. has opposed Israel negotiating with Syria.

Barak: "I think they realized in recent years that we understand the Syrian issue better.""
