    ..that it conditions peace with syria on return of the golan. Israel returned the Sinai because the territory is massive and as long as it is demilitarized is Israel can be safe (i.e. would take too long to move the entire Egyptian army into into and accross the sinai and attack Israel). the Golan is small but very strategic. if it was in Syria's hands and they had a change of heart Israel would be doomed, especially given that modern warfare involves firing missiles at civilian populations. Israel cannot fight a war of attrition. Israel knows the devil Assad, but not who or waht would replace him.... maybe it'll be a wolf in sheep's clothing. in which case the world would presure Israel to gamble with its fate by returning the Golan
