    Default How Israel Could Remove Assad

    If Israel is willing to think outside the box, it can deal Bashar al-Assad, Iran, and Hizbullah a body blow without firing a shot. Defense Minister Ehud Barak simply needs to convince Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to put back on the table the offer Barak made to Assadís father in 2000óreturn of the Golan Heights to Syria in return for peace with Israel.

    Even after Assad goes the new leadership might once again be anti Israel so why give away anything now. If anything it is a buffer for Israel. So NO.

    This territory, which includes today the city of Dera, is similar in size to the territory of the Israeli Golan.

    A Syria divided along sectarian lines, could be a good thing for Israel. It would mean a less powerful syrian military on that flank. It would probably also be a blow to Hizbollah in Lebanon if (when) Assad falls, and would mean less influence for Iran in the region.

    yea it will also mean an anti-israeli Sunni axis from south, to the north and east. There are no winners here for Israel, its a catch-22 on every border.

    it was a stupid offer.....
    it provides Syria/Hezbollah/Iran a vantage point to rain rockets on Israel. All of Israels cities will be in striking distance from the high altitude of the Golan/Hermon
