"Syria could have had the Golan (like the Pal`s could have had the West Bank) many years ago. But they didn`t. Why? Think hard." Why? Because Israel NEVER bargained in good faith. Israel's negotiations were and are nothing but showboating for a world audience. Israel sets impossible terms, humiliating terms, reneges on previous agreements, ignores agreements already in force, and then blames the other side for not wanting peace--all while laughing behind its hands. The problem, now, is that the world has seen this movie too many times before.
