I just returned from a tour of Israel. A couple points not in the news are: 1. Nearly all of the water flow for the River Jordan which flows to the Sea of Galilee then to the Dead Sea originates in the north from Lebanon and Mt. Hermon. If the Golan Heights were given to Syria or the PLO then the life giving water that supplies irrigation and drinking water to Israel could be diverted. My understanding is, this was tried once before by the Syrians. 2. The Israeli's have been Good Steward's of the land and created farm land and Cities out of the Desert. The Arabs have enormous lands nearby in Egypt, Jordan, Algeria, Syria and more. Take a look at a Middle East map. Israel is a tiny area surrounded by huge land masses controlled by Arab countries. These neighboring Arab countries have the land and resources to absorb the Palestinians. Any residents of Israel that are not happy have plenty of choices in neighboring countries. We should support the only Democracy in the Middle East.
