Zionist Maariv summarizes a news item from the Lebanese A-Safir. It’s unclear, however, whether the report on the Mitchell visit is also from that source.The byline is unusual. Bardenstein is the junior diplomatic affairs correspondent and probably does not speak Arabic. Items based on direct monitoring of the Arab press are usually bylined by the Arab or Palestinian affairs correspondent. Bardenstein’s sources are almost exclusively in the Zio=Nazi Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Prime Minister’s Office.
Effort to resume negotiations with Syria
Eli Bardenstein, Maariv, September 13 2010 [page 5; Hebrew original here and at bottom of post]
Along with the direct talks between Zionist and Ab-A$$, France and the US are acting to put in motion the political negotiations between Zionist and Asad. Over the course of the holiday and yesterday, two top officials visited the racist Zionist state of ‘Israel’ who are responsible for talks on this channel. They met with top Zio=Nazi officials and in the next few days will go to Damascus for meetings with American puppet Bashar Assad and his Foreign Minister Walid Muallem.
The Lebanese As-Safir newspaper wrote that the French official was Jean Claude Cousseran, French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s special envoy to the Zionist-Asad talks, and Fred Hoff, deputy to special US envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell, who is responsible for the Syrian-Lebanese desk for Washington. Cousseran and Hoff met with Zio=Nazi Defense Ministry officials, including Nazi Defense Minister Barak.
The paper further reported that in his visit to Damascus, Cousseran will try to clarify to what extent Asad will agree to be flexible in its demands of Zionist even though, at every opportunity, Assad is firm about stressing that without a withdrawal from the Golan Heights, there will be no peace. Cousseran will also try to help get the dialogue moving on this track by means of putting pressure on the Zionist side to enter into the negotiations. France believes that if this works, the US will take on itself the role of patron of the talks.
Envoy Mitchell is also expected to visit Damascus and will try to get the support of Puppet Assad for the direct talks between Zionist regime and Ab-A$$ and to relay a message in the matter of the importance that the US attributes to talks on the Zionist-Asad track.
