    The Golan was captured from the enemy by blood sweat and tears with many dead soldiers.Before that the all the kibutzim up north were shelled daily by rockets.The people had to dash to the shelters in a nano second.Life was awful.But since then no more rockets...thank God. I remember visiting Kfar Blum having to dash to the shelter in the middle of my sleep. to those that think we are going to return Golan think again. Plus now being in OUR hands we can detect any incursions that may occur. The panoramic view we now have is essencial WILL REMAIN in Israel's hands. To any naysayers you do not live there,t would behoove you shut up for you are ignorant of its value.
