        "Son of man, I have made you a watchmen for the house of Israel; so here the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to a wicked man, you will surely die, and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sins, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. But if you do warn the wicked man and he does not turn from the wickedness or from his evil ways, he will die for his sin; but you will have saved yourself." Ezekiel 3:17-19.

The opponents of a Golan withdrawal is the National Unity Coalition (NUC) for Israel, a group that says it represents 200 Jewish and Christian organizations. The group has begun lobbying Congress to oppose U.S. funds to finance a withdrawal.
