I'm a Syrian (3rd generation)Brazilian, Christian. That said I find absurd Israel, a developped country, sit on land that never (even in Biblical times) belonged to Israel, and that has been taken in a land grabing operation, according to Moshe Dayan's teestament letter. Syrians want Golan back due to natinal pride, period. There is no better and suitable partner in the ME than Syria, the only arab country where religion affiliation plays NO role. Why not SY-IL joint ventures on Sky resorts, Vineyards and fruit farms? What difference does it make for Golaners to pay taxes to Damascus than to TelAviv? The Israeli greed is just plain stupid, and will end causing Syrians to become an easy prey to Islamic fundamentalists. It does not seem very Jewish smart!
