The IDF, Mossad, and Israeli leaders, generally, used to be perceived as smart . Now, that is very much not the perception - personally, I would not trust Olmert, Peretz, and Livni, along with their elder statesman, Peres, to make any security decision, let alone whether to return the Golan. I am afraid Israel is making one mistake after another - the idea that Assad would forsake his buddies is absurd . When will Israel ever learn that appeasement NEVER works . Jeez, Israel is embarrassing itself, and , more importantly,hastening its own destruction - the Mad Dog on Jihad, in Teheran, must be very pleased.
