    THE GOLAN HEIGHTS 2000-2010

     
    The Golan Heights

    As a piece of history (in a shell), the first partition of Palestine was done during the British mandate in 1920-1921.

    Unrealistically with the actual political and social reality on the ground and only with the British desire of antagonism against the Jewish population the area of the Golan Heights was given to the French, at that time the governing colonial power in a dusty colony named Syria. At the same time, all the territories east of river Jordan were incorporated into an entity named Transjordan, who later becomes the Kingdom of Jordan.

    The beauty of the Golan Heights it's impressive. The geo-political stategic role is important and paramount for defense; even the means of modern war changed so much in the last 3 decades.

    What kind of peace can be signed, even if this territory will change hands sometime?

    An Egiptian or a Jardanian PEACE STYLE PLUS AND/OR MINUS. It’s not going to be one like in Western Europe today.

    Only a profund change in education in the arab and muslim countries, advanced political attitudes and new focus on peace and prosperity can bring a real peace deal to this region.
