Palestine is a part of "GREATER SYRIA" & Out-of-the-Box Policy for Israel's Victory.

I often think that Israel now needs a Bismarck.

Russia's Putin is arguably a master of Realpolitik. He so the opportunity and took it by joining forces with the Alawite regime of Syria. Russian Chechen policy does not lend him the opportunity to ally with the Sunni Muslims of the world, particularly in Western Asia. That said, Syria is now in Russias Orbit and places the Arab Sunni world in contradictory places.

This is, however, a golden opportunity (Realpolitik) for Israel. Reconstruction of Syria should be spear-headed by Israel with Gulf State support and Palestinian initiatives. Palestinian should be given the opportunity to re-build Syria. And every Palestinian anywhere in the world should receive a Special Status Visa for that effort. Russian Oligarchs obviously may also participate. Besides find ways for Syrian refugees to return to their homes, Palestinians should receive preferential treatment in re-building and re-settling in Syria, since all Palestinians are "natural" (potential) citizens of Greater Syria.

You, Dr. Daniel Pipes, are in an ideal position to develop and expound such a view to solve part of Palestine problem, namely the Statelessness of Palestinians. I propose that this is a way of putting some "meat' on your Policy of Victory for Israel. What say you? Palestinians - Rebuilding and Settling in civil-war ravaged Syria?
