Bilal's statements, recorded by Golan residents and passed to WND, follow information, first reported by WorldNetDaily in July, that Syria is in the process of forming its own Hizbullah-like guerrilla organization to attack Israeli positions in the Golan Heights, according to a senior Baath party official.
"The Syrian minister welcomed a debate going on in Israel about whether to resume negotiations with Damascus on the Golan Heights, which Syria lost to Israel in the Six-Day War. He went on to say: “We now have a window of opportunity of several months. If there is no progress, the countdown will begin for a new Syrian-Israeli war.”
" Opening the First International Media Forum hosted by Syrian Province Quneitra entitled 'Golan: The Peace Gate' with a wide participation by Syrian, Arab and foreign journalists, the Minister stressed that Syria will restore Golan to the last grain of its soil.
The Forum started activates from Ein al-Tina village where a big crowd of Syrian citizens gathered on the opposite side in the occupied town of Majdal Shams to express their steadfastness in facing the Israeli occupation and to show full belonging to their mother land Syria.
Talking to the Syrians in the occupied Golan through loudspeakers across the barbed wires, Minister Bilal underlined that their steadfastness in facing the Israel occupation will definitely force it to withdraw to June 4th 1967 line."
"Israel has `hundreds' of tactical and strategic nuclear weapons, including more than 100 nuclear artillery shells, nuclear landmines in the Golan Heights and hundreds of low-yield neutron warheads."

"I doubt they use nuclear landmines... there would be no purpose of it.. and dangerous.. imagine a goat wondering the deseret and BAM .. nuclear detonation lol.
Unless it is nukes placed within the earth deeper down to blow the land up, like a bubble, then down, like a crator. Sure to kill anything within the radiace of the blast, and radiation leak at a minimum (it would most likely be within kilitons) and detonated via computer, not steping on them."
Rockpuck: I will assure you, the Gholan Heights has NO stratigic resource, location, anything for that matter of anykind worth going to war over...
...Syria, with plenty of water, would have gained no civilian advantage from this [water diversion] plan, except for the political objective of destroying Israel without having to go to war or employing military means...
...The struggle for the water continued for years and constituted one of the principal causes of the Six Day War. It should be stressed that most of the tributary streams flowing into the Jordan and the Kinneret originate on the Golan slopes...
