1) Syria is not a real country, as evidenced by the 100,000 people killed and over 1,000,000 refugees generated there by sectarian violence in the past 24 months... more than the refugees and casualties generated during the entire history of the Arab conflict with Israel. 2) Syria controlled the Golan Heights for 20 years (1947-1967), Israel on the other-hand has controlled the Golan for 46 year, more than twice as long. 3) There are more Israelis living on the Golan than any other group... and they have turned it into a productive and beautiful area, whereas before, it was nothing but a waist-land of Syrian military outposts. So nice try to the losers above.
