    "The Golan" means the Golan Hights, a mountainy area that Israel had taken from Syria in the 6-day war. The Goland Hights were officially annexed by Israel but Syria still demands it back. Not that big a place if I may add, but still big to Israeli standards.

    BTW, Syria is about an hour drive from my house so I'll follow this closely.

    Rioters told al-Jazeera that they the people here in the video were shoot at by security forces for doing this.
    More then 30 dead reported in the Friday protests.

    The situation in Syria is getting bad to worse. Hope the Arab League does something about it, if not the western world.

    If things turn Libya style I wouldn't be surprised if the West did nothing, after all Syria has no oil like Libya does.
    The only good thing I can see from a Syrian civil war is a possibility for a freeing the Syrian part of Kurdistan. I don't think democracy will work but the Muslim brotherhood has a very good chance of taking things over.

    Arab league has not been able to do anything to bring stability to the region in any conflict or issues,they will do the same here.
