To DM; You absolutely right. Also, the US gives back territory taken in WW2, but only after peace is assured (like 50 years). Syria has been fighting Israel since day one. What is the urgency here? Let Syria prove by deeds over 100 yrs that they really do want peace with Israel. Look, had Israel lost any land since 48, do we really believe the Arabs would consider returning. Anyone who does..I have the Brooklyn Bridge. Syria's goal, and the entire Muslim world's goal, is Israel judenrein, get it, w/O Jews. Nothing has changed since 73, when they emasuclated IDFers caught The ONLY reason they haven't attacked Israel is the obvious, they CANNOT WIN, with Israel holding the best tank trap in the world. Syria, must invade Israel, cut it into two parts, to hope for a victory (not just fire Scuds). NO country, given the current environment, would give up land. If Israel does..next it will be Tel Aviv. Iran today said G-d will destroy Israel ( implication: ASA it gets nukes..good bye Jews.
