Israel must not give back one millimeter of the Golan. It is excellent topography from which to attack Israel, as Syria has demonstrated many times over the years. If the Golan is returned then two scenarios are possible: Syria will use the Golan to launch attacks on Israel, again, or Syria will allow Hezbollah, Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad, etc. access to the Golan and they will attack Israel; plausible deniability for Syria, Israel will be viewed as the aggressor if Israel attacks Syria. Either way, Israel is getting attacked from the Golan. If it is a matter of honor for Syria, they should admit they lost the war, like honorable men, and accept that Syria is not as big as it used to be. Israel must not give back one millimeter of the Golan.
