The reality is that there isn't anything Syria can offer Israel that exceeds the risk of relinquishing the high-ground buffer on the Golan that -- in itself -- is a greater Security guarnatee than anything Syria could offer. By contrast, Syria's declared intent to -- perhaps -- move out from under the Hamas/Hezbullah/Iran axis if it regains the Golan just doesn't compare with the comfort of Israel knowing that -- in the worst case -- Damascus is within artillery range....while the Galillee is not. That said, one has to be fair in Strategic terms and assessments....Syria has an interest to continue "low-grade" operations against Israel via proxies if Damascus can't regain the Golan. Israel needs to live with that recognition.
