If Hizb'Allah projectiles rained down on Israeli territory 24/7 it would not bring down the State of Israel. And if the tzahal had a re-run and made the Litani basin resemble the Somme, it would not eradicate Hizb'Allah. One has to apply a different model to the military solution- which is mutually an unworkable one, as we found in Northern ireland after 38 years of trying the same solution year after year, hoping for a different outcome to last year. Syria has clout because it relies on economic prestige to shore up its regime. It is the only Arab-controlled route to the trading ports of the Med. But if Israel worked out a just and fair peace deal mutually acceptable to both sides of the Green Line and then made an economic Union of Israel-Palestine-Jordan, commerce would have access to the Med by dropping the Syrian route. Not only could this undermine Assad but also Nasrallah.
