1. Iran and the Golan
Hilda ,   USA   (12.18.06)
Now we know why Assad has been making peace overtures to Israel. Iran wants into the Golan. That's scary. It makes me wonder? if indeed Iran already has the BOMB and wants easy access to drop it on Israel. You can;t trust evil. You must eradiate it. Remember the Purim story. Haman has to hang from Mordecai's gallows.
2. i don't see how coddling this dictator helps anybody...
3. iran is only interested in world destruction
Arie ,   Afula   (12.18.06)
theGolan is strictly a stepping sone for them. In case the world hasn't noticed the Golan is Israeli
4. The Golan is to Israel
Arie ,   Afula   (12.18.06)
as Texas is to the US:Scotland and Wales are to the UK;Basque is to Spain; and lebanon is to syria
5. Iran and the Golan
M. Hartley ,   Atlanta, US   (12.18.06)
Why, unless Iran has later and much more extensive "plans," is it so important to Iran that Syria gets back the Golan? I think, Iran wants Syria to do a lot of the dirty work before they decide that Syria is ripe for the plucking. While Nasralla is undermining Lebanon on Iran's behalf, Iran is playing Syria, and if all goes well, Iran can overrun Jordan through Iraq and pounce on Israel from three directions. I can see the little asshat pouring over those maps and licking his chops, just like Hitler was so fond of doing. Maybe Israel and the US should make nice with Syria, just to drive Ahmadinejad crazy.
6. Iran will build an oil pipeline to the EU
Russel ,   Tlv   (12.18.06)
When Iraq falls Iran will step in and construct a pipeline though Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and eventually to Europe, bypassing the future possibility of being blockaded by the US in the Gulf. This is why James Baker and those Democrat losers are sucking up to Syria and Iran. They know which way the wind is about to blow and they don't want Israel messing it up. Bye bye America
7. Golan = future iranian base
Meni   (12.18.06)
if the syrians really want peace, they should give up the golan. its been part of israel for longer than its been part of syria. it provides water for most of israel (not syria), and it provides a sense of security for israel that decreases tensions for both sides. its a good wall for good or bad neighbors. peace WITH the golan should be the israeli government's motto.
8. To #6
M. Hartley ,   Atlanta, US   (12.18.06)
They EU is, already, building a pipeline to Russia. But not so fast with the bye-bye US. We have larger oil reserves in shale than the ME put together. And they've figured out a reasonably cheap way to extract it. Upwards of a million barrels an acre, a billion barrels a square mile. And the oil shale formation in the Green River Basin, most of which is in Colorado, covers more than a thousand square miles - the largest fossil fuel deposits in the world. There's more of that in Wyoming. Don't forget, either, that the US has the largest coal deposits in the world, too. So, we're not quite ready to throw in the towel; at least, not over oil.

Patrick ,   Quebec city (Canada)   (12.18.06)
Le Pays Basque is also in France, not only in Spain. Go and learn your geography man!
10. Return of Golan Tehran priority
Yosh ,   Abuja   (12.18.06) we'd have a vantage point to attack Israel jointly! How foolish do they think we can be to not see the bigger picture!
11. To Meni #7-you are right
Arie ,   Afula   (12.18.06)
that is why I wouldn't be surprised to hear olmert or peretz endorse the idea!
12. To Iranian ambassador:: First u return Kurdish land to Kurds
KMR ,   Middle East   (12.18.06)
13. To Iranian ambassador:: Return islands of Abu Musa to UAE !
KMR ,   Middle East   (12.18.06)
14. Ynet news, enough about Syria and the Golan!

17. Golan was Palestine till 1922
Semsem ,   New York, USA   (12.18.06)
The Golan was part of Palestine till 1922. The British gave it to the French that year so Syrian claims are not that clear cut.
18. Iran Will Put Missiles on Golan
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (12.18.06)
They will turn it into another S. Lebanon. Assad is talking peace because he's scared of Iran - they're going to eat him alive. Salman Rushdie called Islamic fanatics "SNAKES WITH BEARDS" & I'm sure Assad, who is also a snake but without a beard, does not trust their fond embrace.
19. #4 No, Golan is to Israel
AK   (12.18.06)
what Sudetenland was to Czechoslovakia. Without Golan, Israel will be defenseless, and Iran and Syria know it, and the US and UK and the EU do not care, just as they didn't care before.
20. Iran... Iran... it artificial subject ?
Atilla Karagözoğlu ,   Istanbul   (12.18.06)
Iran said this. Iran told that. Iran... Iran.... once I asked a friend that what is he thinking about Iran ? He asked my opinium first. I said I dont think they are that powerfull. He said they are not like The Arabs. They did have big Empire, once open time. They are serious people. Why I cant see the danger of Iran ? Honestly, I just cant get the point. Is this ? make them important in world media than make them feel they are one of the super power ! than expect mistakes from them !!! I give an example : If you always tell good things to someone, that will affect him negative ! is this psychological tactic ?
21. Need I say more

Ironcandle ,   Atlanta, GA   (12.18.06)
You think we want to BLOCKADE oil from coming out of the ME? I thought that was the reason we went into Iraq, to steal all their oil. (Gas is at $2.20 per gallon, hardly stealing it, are we?) If we wanted to stop Iran from exporting oil, don't you think we would just bomb that pipeline into dust? Idiot.
Joel ,   Montreal   (12.18.06)
A few facts readers; Rabin, Sharon and Olmert have all agreed to give away the Golan to the untrustworthy enemy, filthy greed has dumbfounded them. Israeli soldiers are not rescued by Israel from enemy hands ANYLONGER for some years now, Joeseph's tomb where Israeli soldiers hid helplessly for days and one bled to his death waiting for an extraction that Barak refused to allow but Ragub much later performed is an example, and so is Kalandia junction where soldiers were under fire and hid behind a rock till late night due to the Army's then decision to wait till hell froze over. 2 reservists that were kinapped and tortured then thrown out of a window in Ramallah and later tortured and bodies mutilated were not rescued either. The most recent kidnapped soldiers are also not rescued and what did Olmert say? It sickens me to write his remarks that he should be ousted from politics for making and have his faced slapped. Israel's political leaders are amature, corrupt and the recent Hizbullah attack on Israel's north and Israel's hip responce reactions are more proof of my claims. Stop donating money to Israel it only goes to pockets with big holes. Don't fall for crap Government angency sob stories unles you are looking to launder your cash. I am never making aliyah neither should any Jew for Israel is almost forgotten history.
24. #9-sorry patrick
Arie ,   Afula   (12.18.06)
I didn't mean to leave the frogs out. Now froggies, give the Basque back!! viva la france arabia
25. To #19 AK-Bottom Line
Arie ,   Afula   (12.18.06)
Thanks and you are correct. While we are at it, we can go around the world and list similarities. Bottom Line:Golan is part of our wonderful State and will remain so!!
26. Golan must be kept by Israel for security
Jash ,   Syria   (12.18.06)
27. Final comment on the US trying to steal oil:
M. Hartley ,   Atlanta, US   (12.18.06)
If we had REALLY wanted to steal somebody's oil, we would have invaded Venezuela. It's just a hop and a skip down the road, and who would have stopped us? The Mexican Army???
28. 23# Joel, you are going overboard
Judah ,   Golan Heights,ISRAEL   (12.18.06)
No matter what may you think about our current government that does not mean that you should give up on the country itself. Bad leaders come and they go but do not forget that Israel will continue to be the Jewish homeland. In fact more Jews live in Israel than in any country in the world including America. More Jewish babies are now being born in Israel than every other country combined. In conclusion hate the leaders if you must but always love your homeland.
29. Just the same -Olmert is giving up the Golan
malcolm   (12.18.06)
Olmert has proved time and again that he is nothing short of an operative for Tehran. What ever the ayatollahs want he delivers it on or before schedule. The fact that Tehran openly drools for the Golan shows how important it is to them. They are Instant Messengering Olmert to act on their behalf before he gets kicked out. And Livni is right behind him ready to carry out another catastrophic experiment. A day with Olmert & Livni in the Knesset is a dangerous day for Israel.
30. I dont give a rats ass what Iran thinks.
Johnson ,   USA   (12.19.06)
Todays Iran and Syria are doomed and they know it. Enjoy you last gasps Ahmadinejad.
