Speaking of Golan:

Noam Chomsky:

If the US and Israel wanted to assist the rebels – which they do not – 
they can do it, even without military intervention. For example, if 
Israel were to mobilise forces on the Golan Heights (of course, it’s the 
Syrian Golan heights, but by now the world more or less tolerates or 
accepts Israel’s illegal occupation,) If they would just do that, It 
would compel Assad to move forces to the South which would relieve 
pressure against the rebels. But there’s no hint even of that. They’re 
also not giving humanitarian aid to the huge number of suffering 
refugees, not doing all kinds of simple things that they could do.
