Golan Heights, Jordan & Syria


At the end of the day yesterday, our guide and driver took us to a place I'd never seen, just read about: the Golan Heights; the buffer strip between Jordan to the West and Syria to the North and East. The area bristled with barbed wire, razor wire, electric fences and stirps of land with warning signs about land mines. Yikes! Talk about a tension filled strip of rocks! Yet our guide, clearly and Israeli, told us about the warring interests on this land for strategic dominance, and, she said "You will be reading about this in the coming years."
Today we head to Cana and on into Jerusalem.

Hi Donn,
An interesting view and I see Terry is helping to explain the situation.

Hi Donn,
I am sure he could, how is he doing with the languages?
Today is the sixth session of the Studies in Revelation here at the Samarkand, chapters 10, 11, 12.
Greetings to the students!

Or maybe a better question would be what are the books that best portrays each side...
