    There are two ways to read Dagan's comments. (a) He is simply playing the bad cop routine to counter Peretz and Peres (a long favoured trick of the security establishment, which is designed to counter the idea that Israel is actually willing to trade land for peace); or (b) He is actually believes that Syria would be insane enough to engage in a suicidal war against a nuclear state. Take your pick. Although a catastrophe for Israel, the wanton destruction of Lebanon last summer was a gentle warning to Assad that his fragile state would be pulverised within hours if he dared to repeat the aggressive actions of his father - or even if he dared to retaliate against unprovoked aggression. It really beggars belief that the leaders of the Israeli security state cannot see what is plainly obvious to the rest of the world, namely that the territory which the settlers have occupied illegally is the source of the conflict. Solution: make them give it back!
