I agree with you -Israel should negociate with Syria, etc...-, except when you write : "if the Baath regime is overthrown and a Democracy rises". If the Baath regime is overthrown, no democracy will rise... It will just be one more islamic country -but this time, along Israel's boarder-. Can't you understand that no democracy can rise in Syria ? What is the counterpower of the Baath ? The Islamists ! Moreover, there might be a civil war in Syria if the Baath is averthrowned.
