and to think that Adon Olmert wants to dismantle more Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria. The message of Hamas, elected by the MAJORITY of Palestinians, is very very clear. Our leaders are taking our country to disaster. The Golan was captured in a state of war that was instigated by Syria and they LOST. Even then, Israeli leaders still speak of giving it back to Syria for a future peace settlement. Tell me, which country offers to give back land it captured in a DEFENSIVE war against aggression? Especially from a country that refuses to recognize its existence and houses and funds terrorists. Not a single inch of the Golan will be given back to Syria until Syria demonstrates in word AND deed that it is a willing partner for negotiations and comprehensive peace agreements. Until then, Ramat HaGolan is part of Israel.
