Since Syria wants nothing from Israel except the return of the Golan and Israel is not prepared to return the Golan, then there will be no peace with Syria. Actually, the Israeli government does have one particular deal ready for Syrias signature. The deal is Syria immediately stops support of Hizbollah and Hamas and any other anti-Israel group, and Syria stops exerting influence in Lebanon, and Syria cancels their mutual defense treaty with Iran. In exchange, if all these measures are completed by Syria to Israels satisfaction, then Israel will return part of the Golan in 10 years time. There is no person in the world stupid enough to make such a deal with Israel, let alone Assad. It's the usual Israeli special in which Israel gets everything they want up front and ends up paying nothing. America knows this type of deal well.
