"... how naked our desire for the Golan really is" Yup, it is. That is why we annexed it. We could arrange for Mr. Assad to come and visit if he so desires. But it is and should remain Israeli territory. I don't think we should allow Syria to conquer it in any manner. Peace for peace with Syria - absolutely. The Golan - no way.
