Israel captured the Golan Heights in 1967 because Syria attacked periodically or continuously Israeli settlements below the Heights, inside Israel. Syria and Egypt were planning to destroy Israel, and Israel was left with no choice but to preempt, and to capture this strategic territory. Israel later annexed it, and today it is a part of Israel. Why should Israel have to pay this price for peace? Peace should not be had with Syria, unless it is Peace-for-Peace, not Land-for-Peace.
