"Without the Golan Heights, Israel will be at the mercy of a hostile country once more that could shell any part of Israel ... " (DM) As if only our occupation of the Golan prevents Syria from shelling us with their modern long-range missiles. Pure nonsense, which also betrays a deep ignorance of what a Peace Treaty is: Not a promise of lasting friendship but first of all a contract between two parties that have come to the conclusion that living in peace would be more profitable than making war. And as is the case for every contract, the party that breaks it is liable to suffer the consequences. Think only Lebanon, summer 2006. The only agreement we have with this country is the 1949 Armistice Agreement, not even a Peace Treaty.
