Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has offered Syria the Golan Heights if the
Damascus regime cuts its ties with Iran and ends support for Palestinian terror
groups, the Israeli media reported today.
The Golan Heights is strategic mountainous territory looking down
on Israeli population centers twice used by Syria to launch wars against the
Jewish state. Mainstream U.S. and Israeli military experts have long maintained
Israel must retain the Golan to ensure against a ground invasion from Syria.
"Ehud Olmert would sell the Golan Heights for his seat. He is trying to save his own skin, and his statement regarding a withdrawal from the Golan is a desperate attempt to survive," said National Union Party Chairman Zevulun Orlev.
