ALL QUIET ON THE EASTERN FRONT:

Report: Nasrallah is in Damascus (ASSOCIATED PRESS, 7/27/06)

A top Iranian envoy was in Syria on Thursday for talks on the Israeli-Hizbullah conflict in a meeting that brought together the guerrilla organization's two key sponsors, according to Iranian news reports. A Kuwaiti newspaper reported that Hizbullah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah was taking part in the session.

Kuwait's Al-Siyassah newspaper, known for its opposition to the Syrian regime, said the meeting was designed to discuss ways to maintain supplies to Hezbollah fighters with "Iranian arms flowing through Syrian territories."

Al-Siyassah said it learned of the meeting from "well-informed Syrian sources" it did not identify. According to the newspaper, Nasrallah was moving through Damascus with Syrian guards in an intelligence agency car. He was dressed in civilian clothes, not his normal clerical garb.


While Israel mucks about in a sideshow...

As discussed before it will take an obvious causus belli to get the US or Israel to go after Syria or Iran.

If Israel takes out Nasrallah in Damascus would that be ok?

Israel is going out of its way to make clear to Syria that it's not planning any invasion. It may be a feint, but if so they're sure doing a good job of it.
