    As an individual, I am sick to the stomach about reports of the horrors happening in Syria. And in a normal part of the world I would agree with Anshel Pfeffer's analysis. This is the Middle East though, where anyone in the Arab world who Israel takes sides with can be called "traitor" and in contempt for treason. Look how quickly and savagely the Syrian rebels "officially" condemned Israel for the recent bombing of Asad's missile supplies. Do you think they were anything by totally overjoyed by this offensive against an Assad stronghold? But officially, they cannot even be SEEN to evenhave a remote possibly of siding with Israel. Some Sunni Jihadist rebel groups have made it clear that once they have liberated Syria they will move onto attack Israe, to "liberate the Golan". This is pretty much basic Middle East 101 stuff and I am surprised by this column's naivety. The UN and NATO can help the Syrians. Israel needs to keep its nose out except for perhaps providing non-partisan emergency medical assistance to those approaching our borders.
