Seizing the Golan Heights by war, keeping hold of it by media

Rime Allaf deconstructs an article on the Golan Heights.

Unlike most posts on the blogosphere, this is not simply a comment on something in the mainstream media, this is itself original journalism, and something we are desperately in need of in Syria.

She looks at how Israel is de-Syrianising the Golan Heights to make its return to Syria impossible, and out of bounds of any future peace talks.

Well worth a read.
