Your idea would be impossible to implement for a umber of reasons.
1) Israel is a very small land where there are over 8m people already.
2) Israel has water shortage
3) Housing shortage in the Djawlan (Golan in Arabic) area
4) The Druze population of the Golan heights does not want any extra non-Druzes there.
5) Lebanon and Jordan will not be jumping with joy. Lebanon already has 1 million Syrians going in and out every day and wages are down because of it.
6) and most important - those Syrians do not want to go to Israel where Social Security benefits are low and prices and taxes high. They want in Germany, Sweden, Norway and Finland. Otherwise they could have stayed in Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania, Hungary - all war free, democratic and perfectly developed countries I myself have lived in. Refugees that flock from the Middle East hell they themselves made like none of the countries I mentioned. None. They walk through all those borders pushing their way to Germany. Some do not like it there either and continue their journey North.

Even if Israel opened the gates wide, those people will not settle there. Maybe work for some time to get money to go North. Get it?
