    The only question is the IDF line-of-withdrawal: 1) Syria wants the IDF to withdraw to the line of June 1967. 2) Israel wants the IDF to withdraw to the line of the Anglo-French Boundary Commission of 1922. The difference ranges between 10m and 100m, but which side gets its way determines the future Israel/Syrian border. That's all the holdup is i.e. all the rest (observation post on Mt Hermon, demilitarized zones, riparian rights, etc.) were agreed to during the Clinton years. But that's where the holdup is i.e. Rabin handed Clinton a committment that Israel will agree to (1) and not (2), and that "pocket" was acknowledged by Bibi during his first stint as PM. So Bibi doesn't want negotiations, because if he does walk into that room then he's bound by his acknowledgement of the "pocket" to accept (1). And he doesn't want to accept (1).
