A Strong Syria

I've Been Thinking:
"A strong and resistant Syria will bring closer the day in which Jerusalem will become Palestine's capital." That is the wish of an Arab member of the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament, Mohammed Barrakeh.
Can you imagine? Sounds a lot like sedition to me.
Even the Lebanese are challenging Syria and demanding a serious international investigation into former Prime Minister Hariri’s murder. And here we have an Israeli, an Arab, a member of Parliament, calling for a stronger Syria.
Yes, a stronger Syria would threaten Israel.
Palestinians both in and out of Israel should know by now that they will get more from Israel than from any of their Arab brothers.
