both sides.Here's why. Israel has been enjoying Syrian property for 40 years. Now each side blames the other, so let's split the blame half and half. Meanwhile, if Israel returns the Golan, we will of course feel like we are doing Syria a big favor and we wont pay him for using it. Assad will get his land back, but no recompense for the 40 years. BUT, if the land is leased - say for 10 years, a value for it will be established. Then Syria can extend the lease for as many periods as it wants, on condition that the 'back rent' is paid for each additional year with a 50% discount. After say, 5 years, a condition of extending the lease could be to allow entry to Syrians to visit, study and work without visas, and after another 5 years to live there without visas. The lease money should be used to build a university in a green city which would have a med school and a 'green energy program' open to all. This city could be the capital city of the Middle East Union when it is established.
