Trump Recognizes Israeli Sovereignty Over Golan Heights

Recommended Posts

In a move no doubt largely motivated by the desire to check the Iranian presence in Syria and its support for Hezbollah, President Trump has decided to recognize the Golan Heights, captured from Syria in 1967, as sovereign Israeli territory.

As to the inevitable UN condemnation of the move:

A senior Republican congressional staffer scoffed when asked about possible U.N. criticism. “The United Nations operates in a parallel universe where they make things up so they can demonize Israel. That’s nice, but we prefer to exist in actual reality, and anyway the United States makes our own decisions with respect to issues of sovereignty. We didn't care when the U.N. threw their temper tantrum over recognizing the reality of Israel's capital of Jerusalem and we're not going to care when they have fainting spells this time either.”
