Now that the dust has settled, well somewhat. One must remember that Israel cannot deal with Syria on a one on one basis. Only an Islamic orientated country can mediate. Both Israel and Turkey have strong relations and both realize the pivotal role that Turkey has in all Mideast dealings, especially considering their shared common border with Syria. Two countries, Both with a common goal can and will eventually lay the framework for a peace agreement with Israel. The Golan, can well become a demilitarized zone. Nobody has to evacuate,on the contrary an assimilation plan can well succeed. nobody has the right to question the decision of PM Netanyahu,DM Barak or Chief of Staff Ge.Ashkenazi.
