    This action, no doubt in response to what happened last week in Syria, should show the extreme left in Israel that young Assad has no potential to be a Syrian Anwar Sadat. Assad has too weak a regime and is too dependent on Iran to be serious about peace, but is waiting until he gets enough new arms to stage a short war with Israel on the Golan in which his regime still has a chance to survive and get a quick ceasefire thanks to the international community and Russia. Assad may argue that both Olmert and Abbas are equally weak, but Olmert is proped-up by a still strong IDF, and Abbas by American and EU money. So Assad, Man of Peace, waits, but for war.
