Israel: Syria Violates UN Resolution!

Isn't this rich? From a country that is in violation of tens of UN resolutions. From this morning's Al-Jazeera.

Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Shimon Peres said al-Asad's pledge "constituted an evasion and not a response to the Security Council decisions regarding the need for Syria to withdraw fully its forces from Lebanon."

Shimon Peres said al-Asad's pledge was an 'evasion'

Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom on Saturday called on Syria to totally pull its troops out of Lebanon and said a full withdrawal could lead to peace between Israel and Lebanon.

Shalom dismissed al-Asad's speech. "Israel demands a full implementation of UN Resolution 1559 , meaning a complete withdrawal of all Syrian troops from Lebanon," Shalom said, speaking at a joint news conference with Jordanian Foreign Minister Hani al-Mulqi. Shalom said a Lebanon free of Syrian influence could make peace with Israel.'
