Trump: Time to recognise Golan Heights as Israeli Territory

President Donald Trump says it is time the US recognises Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, which it captured from Syria in 1967.

In a tweet, Mr Trump declared that the plateau was of "critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and regional stability".

Israel applied its administration and law to the Golan in 1981, but other governments did not recognise the act.

Syria has consistently sought to regain sovereignty over the region.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has warned about the military "entrenchment" of his country's arch-enemy Iran in the Syria conflict, tweeted his thanks to Mr Trump on Thursday.

"At a time when Iran seeks to use Syria as a platform to destroy Israel, President Trump boldly recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights," he wrote.

There was no immediate response from the Syrian government.

The absolute madman. How large will Israel be by the end of Trump's presidency?

an inconsequential PR move, but amusing because it angers mudshits and the westcucks that worship them.

now if he were to formally recognize the west bank and gaza strip as israeli territory, THAT would be an actual bold move with great potential for lulz (third intifada lel) but i don't think we're gonna see something like that happening anytime soon.
Israel doesn't even claim those.

Last time I checked Israel 1) wasn’t America and 2) has their own military. I don’t even dislike Israel, I just don’t want any more USA tax money to be spent on security or aspirations for foreign powers. There’s a flood in Nebraska that has a better claim on that support because they’re us citizens

The Israelis will probably never relinquish their claim on the Golan Heights, anyway, it's of far too much strategic importance. It's my understanding that it would be a perfect staging ground to launch long-distance attacks into Israeli population centers.

Politically, probably not a good move for Trump from an international standpoint, but domestically it'll cement his popularity with politically-conservative American Jews (and Evangelicals, for that matter). Right-wing antisemites and anti-Israel-types will probably vote for him anyway because lol at the thought of any of them voting for a modern Democrat.

Are you saying that the US should recognise Golan Heights as Nebraskan territory?

Not "would be". Was. The Syrian played all sorts of nasty tricks on the Israelis from there 1948-1967. Y'know little stuff like shelling villages and things.

But since Syria wants to ride the line and not properly negotiate a peace with the state of Israel (which would make doing that sort of thing a no-no) instead keeping the ambiguous "state of war" charade going for perpetuity, Israel isn't going to give it up.

This isn't a spending appropriation and has absolutely nothing to do with flooding in Nebraska. Quit it.
