Israel is castigated for being indifferent to the events in Syria. But what are we supposed to do? Intervene? Send tanks to Daraa? Persuade Obama to act in order to topple Assad? We are being told that not everything is about us, but when we are quiet and just observe the Arab Spring, then we are blamed for not.....what? Intervening? Well, we could speculate if Assad or a democratic regime is good for Israel, if this or that leader in Damascus would be willing to talk about peace. But they have to sort our their own issues first - they have to get their act together. Then we will examine the situation. Israel can´t bring democracy to the arab world. Second - about a message from Ramallah: Mashaal will not transform and become a poodle. If he says no to Fayyad now, then the PA september plan will crash (and no article or op-ed in NYT will help Abbas and Erekat). But if Mashaal accepts Fayyad, then this is just another chapter in the PA-PR-Campaign. It is not real unity - it is a temporary measure in order to castigate Israel as the Global Villain Nr. 1.
