Netanyahu has not the slightest intention of withdrawing from the Golan. What he wants is the appearance of peace talks to lessen criticism of him from the West. Abbas quite rightly won't play his game of fake peace talks, so he's now hoping Assad will. Or if Assad won't then Bibi can cry crocodile tears and wail 'Israel would looooove to make peace, but we have no peace partner. woe is me etc.' It's the game Israel's been playing for years and Bibi is an expert at it.
