Even if Assad is chased out of office or out of the country, the military will stay put. It is the Syrian military which will be a stabliizing influence on Syrian policy. No Arab state or Arab people will ever hold Israel in high regard. This is largely a result of Israel's past actions and continuing actions. Israel will watch the various shakeups in Arab states and wonder what the best result for Israel can be. Because they don't know, they are unsure whether to support change or support the status quo. I am here to tell you that as far as Israel is concerned, the status quo and change will give the same result. What you have now is what you will get no matter what. What you have now will continue to deteriorate with Israel's ongoing expansion and oppression. There will be no free passes or bonuses coming to Israel as a result of revolutions in nations which are considered Israel's enemies.
