    As the Liaison Officer to UNDOF between 1988-1992 one should understand the difference between peacekeeping peace making. I don't think it would be in Israel's interest to face a peace enforcement scenario as this could mean Israel would have a military stand off with the International Community forcing it to give up the Golan Heights..
