The notion the the assad regime will take a strategic asset and not use it to prepare for war...is absurd. The only reason Syria has not fired so much as a rocket since '73 is BECAUSE Israel is in possession of this locale...giving it to Syria will not bring peace but bring Israel closer to war! The notion that peace can be bought is a gross fallacy, and the belief that a piece of paper w/ signatures and agreements will not be broken by the Arabs is ludicrous...they have a hard enough time keeping agreements w/ each other let alone with the Jewish State. Enough is Enough, if the Arabs want peace come and get it if not, Israel shall remain steadfast and strong, remaining hopefull that its neighbors will desire earnest peace and not tactical peace! Shavit its time you get out of the ivory tower and face the siege Israel is in, instead of indulging in unrealistic peace fantasies!
