    Assad has not fallen yet, nor is it clear he would be killed, hanged, arrested; or that Alawites will be persecuted. What good does it bring to Israel, to appear as meddling in Syrian internal affairs, when the entire damn anti-Semitic world would want to invent conspiracy theories? If Gantz believes Asad will fall, and it is important that Knesset members hear it professionally, then do so behind closed doors, without giving ammunition to Israel's enemies. Besides, to absorb people from one ethic sect in favor of others, gets you messed up exactly in the kind of quagmire Israel doesn't need. A grand gesture of total stupidity and no sense of timing and diplomacy. With Gantz, Lieberman and Boogie Ayalon, Israel has three subtle, elegant diplomats-in-chief... one wonders when will Israel ever learn diplomacy. Each and every Israeli politician or high-ranking mouth should go ELSEWHERE, to Europe, and LEARN diplomacy.
