    Niv says, "If the peace is solid Israelis can visit the Golan and perhaps rent it from the Syrians for unlimited period. " Yes, we have 'peace' with Egypt and Jordan but we are not welcome there. Moderate Egyptians and Jordanians who want to improve the relations with us are ostracized. As for returning the Golan, before the six-day-war, the Syrians used to shoot down at us from the heights. The children in the kibbutim below used to live in the shelters. Who is to promise us that this will not happen again? Will Syria agree to international forces? She does not even agree to international forces along her border with Lebanon. When I was younger, I used to be an idealist and believe that peace was possible with the Arabs. But how can we make peace with people who raise their children on hatred of us? Have any of you ever seen what is preached in their mosques? Go to the MEMRI website, www.memri.org, if you want to know what they are saying in their mosques.
