    Syria happens to have found itself in a incredibly unique position.Lodged between Iraq and Lebanon,it is Iran's gateway to the mediterranean.For Iran to export its philosophy and arms to Hizbullah and Hamas,Syria is a must. That is why when the Quartet got together with Abbas,the same day Assad went to Teheran. Assad doesnt have to produce anything.Its about location.The Israelis and Americans obviously see what seemed years ago to be the majestic Golan Heights,they think it looks more like a molehill today.What is not a molehill is Iranian influence through Iraq and into Hizbullah and Hamas.This is a grave threat to the Saudis and Israel.So if a peace plan can be implemented with Abbas's Fatah then Syria surely seals the deal and the Iranians are done.
