    Hello Dorothy, Discussions between Israeli PMs and Assad on the Golan are very well documented. I suggest Dennis Ross' book, "The Missing Peace". Of course, Israelis wanted a clear peace, etc. So it was agreed there will be tourism, trade, embassies (with some office opened BEFORE the conclusion of Israeli withdrawl), etc. Everything you would want. Questions not resolved (with Barak) was how far from the Kinneret the border will move; Barak wanted 400 meters, Syria agreed to 50. Other technicalities (how long the withdrawl period, water quality guarantees, etc.) not yet resolved. It is all straight forward, provided Israel wants to play. Would this be harder than the Sinai evacuation (1983)? I don't know. Yamit was a town too. (There are only 17000 Jews on the Golan.) P.S. When I am saying the Syrians will not cooperate on Shabaa, I mean if the Golan prospects are not involved. They will not give a piece of the Golan to Lebanon just so that Israel is able to keep the rest.
