March 21, 2011 Avi writes an article Syria: The Wall of Fear is cracking in which he discusses the ramifications of the uprising in Syria.
“…Syria is neither Egypt nor Tunisia…that regime will not hesitate to oppress the uprising by all means possible…the events in Syria will have an enormous impact on Israel in the short term as well as the long term.
At this point there is one major question that must be asked:
What will the position of the international community be in a situation where events in Syria quickly deteriorate into a bloody massacre in Syrian cities?
These questions are not theoretical. They are very immediate and very clear, and they may be very relevant in a very short period of time. The way they will be addressed by the International community and the factors in the region, will substantially impact both the regional and global system.”
As of October 2012 the UN Security Council and the international community have failed to put an end to the bloodshed in Syria which has resulted in the death of over 30,000 Syrians.
