Of course there was no reason yet to believe that redemption is near, after yesterday's historical handshakes:
"[...]Khatami told IRNA after his return from Italy: "I strongly deny shaking hands, meeting and talking to the Israeli president.[...]This claim is like other baseless claims made by the Zionist media in the past."[...]"
It will take much more than a simple handshake to bring about serious changes here. Still, it was an interesting and memorable event. NB: the official Syrian press agency first denied, then confirmed that Katsav and Assad shook hands.
