Hi Abram, You wrote - "I believe the time has come to annex the Golan Heights." - This was done in 1981. You also wrote - "Give them Kuneitra as a token of good will, and let`s move on." - This was done in 1974. Israel said that it would withdraw from Kuneitra so that only the civilian population could return. This "good-will gesture" resulted in Syrian Intelligence moving into the town and the Syrian authorities barring any civilians from entering, until 3 ago. No doubt the Syrians allowed some to return recently to act as the "Golan Liberation Front" in the upcoming war. By the way "good-will gestures" to arab-moslems only leads to more bloodshed. Fact.
