IF the cartographer determines that the Shaba Farms are part of Lebanon then I can't see the point of Israel WANTING to keep it. While Shaba was regarded as part of occupied Syrian territory then Israel had every right to station troops on it, but if it becomes recognized as Lebanese territory then Israel's best recourse has to be to say "Oops! Honest mistake! Here ya' go, buddy, no hard feelings hey?". After all, apart from wounded pride, keeping up an occupation of Lebanese soil helps Israel....how, exactly? All it does is justify Hezbollah picking up a stick and poking Israel with it again. Why would a dinky little area be worth THAT sort of grief?
