In 1967, Syria, Egypt and Jordan VERY vocally and VERY openly called up their armies and were preparing to perform an imminent 3-way attack to destroy Israel. All very vocal. All very obvious at the time for everyone in the world. As you wrote Johnboy (interesting name for an Arab) you can't claim territory simply because you want it. Unfortunately for your friends, Israel didn't do what was expected of them, and sit back like sheep waiting for the slaughter, and hit them first. The poor Syrians lost the Golan Heights. And they lost it for good. This today serves as a secrurity buffer zone which keeps the peace for both Syria and for Israel. By the way, many of these Arab countries today decry that Israel was the aggressor in 1967. They turn their back on history, revise it and rewrite it to serve their political purposes, this JohnBoy which I am sure you have taken on as G-d's absolute Gospel.
