"The Golan is a strategic place for our security, and for there to be peace there must be security," opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu said Thursday. Speaking at a Likud conference in the northern territory, Netanyahu called for new elections "where the public will decide," the Golan's future. "If someone tells us we must leave the Golan for the sake of the peace process, I say: We shall not withdraw." "Whoever defends [the historical site of] Gamla, defends the whole of Israel. Gamla shall not fall again, Jerusalem will never again be divided," continued the opposition leader.
