Map depiction[edit]

The current map depiction has strong POV overtones and is a digitally altered and skewed map that reflects partisan opinions. The Golan Heights have been under Israeli civilian control for 44.5 years. They have been under Syrian control for only 21. I have compiled a number of maps from reliable sources (including National Geographic and United Press International) showing the Golan as belonging to neither Israel nor Syria. Please note the UPI map.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9] The Golan remains under defacto Israeli control and it’s disputed status should be reflected on corresponding maps. Moreover, Caesarea Philippi is a tourist attraction and as such it's status should at the very least be shown to be within the area of the controlling sovereign so that the reader who wishes to visit the subject area knows where he/she is going. Accordingly, I have replaced the existing non-neutral, digitally altered, partisan map with a more neutral depiction.--Jiujitsuguy (talk) 02:52, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

The Golan remains Syrian territory under Israeli occupation, as the Golan Heights article makes clear. Your collection of news sources do not trump the countless scholarly sources that make this point crystal clear. Wikipedia is still an encyclopedia, not a hasbara production. nableezy - 15:30, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
