After the 1967 Six Days War it was one of the priority areas the government chose for Jews to live and work. And the work was to be agriculture. It's very warm there and was perfect fertile ground for agriculture, especially the very profitable for export summer crops in the winter. There were three areas of the land liberated in 1967 that the government quickly planned for settlement, the Golan, the Jordan Valley and Northern Sinai. When Prime Minister Menachem Begin gave Egypt's Sadat the Sinai he destroyed the Jewish agriculture in the Northern Sinai. The Golan is a success and still very Jewish, but the Jordan Valley has more problems. And the Arab terrorists are a big danger to the Jews there.
Last night there was a murder. Residents heard noise, went out and were attacked. The man was murdered and the woman escaped.
