Completely misconceived article. Bibi is no more minded to compromise with Syria than with the Palestinians. Assad, while no doubt he would like the Golan back, cannot do a deal with Israel without a comprehensive Israeli/Palestinian deal, as that would undermine his regime. To cap it all, the article makes no mention of the recent French visit that concluded there was no prospect of movement on this dispute any time soon. Nor, for that matter, of the recent Kerry visit whose aim was clearly to "manage" the Syrian issue in the context of the Iranian issue - there sure were no reports of initiatives coming out of that meeting to restart Golan negotiations any time soon. In short, of all the places to start the search for peace, just now this is one of the most hopeless. Not only that, of all the problems in the region, this is (probably) one of the safer ones to leave in its current holding pattern - which for the time being suits all sides more or less fine.
