Is it really too late to take up the reigns with the Sunnis - especially as they can benefit from Israel. Most countries are opportunists and if they can use Israel in the field they require then it is a plus. Hamas would like to all Arab countries to unify against Israel and it is up to Israel to drive a wedge between the warring Arab countries.

Thanks to Our Dear Leader Bibi for having done anything excepted trying to improve his day by day popularity index.

Thanks also for having contributed to the election of Donald.

For not having ended Hamas rule in Gaza.

For nothing.

But Tehran and other genocidal antisemits are clapping their hands.

Does he have a conscience? Does he understand which kind of disasters he caused and is causing? Is his ego so bottomless?
8. Earth to Fishman.

Sunnis are Muslims. Muslims don't honor agreements. Therefore, making agreements with Sunnis or any other Muslims is pointless. No Muslims, no problem.
9. good that the likes of Fishman aren't deciding anything

Fishman is the kind of journalist who sits on the sidelines and pontificates on what should and shouldn't have been done. He overestimates the power of Israel and clearly has never heard of the 'law of unintended consequences'. Israel best policy was, is and will remain to not interfere in the politics of neighboring states except when and where Israeli security is being threatened. This has been applied to Syria by the current and immediately preceding governments. While we may have preferences on the kind of leadership in Damascus, we should restrain those inflated illusory ambitions to influence the internal politics of neighboring states.
