It can't be true

DEBKA asserts that Olmert is considering returning the Shebaa farms area to Lebanon. Could that be the reason for Rice's trip to Lebanon? There's also talk about a prisoner swap next week.

However dubious the sources, we may as well savor at least the illusion of good sense and diplomacy. If Israel returns the Shebaa to Lebanon (though it used to be Syrian), it would definitely put pressure on Hezbollah, as that is one of their main justifications for being an armed force.
