Following on from US recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital and its rejection of the JCPOA deal with Iran, the Trump administration is believed to be close to recognising Israel's sovereignty over the Golan. Intelligence Minister Israel Katz described endorsement of Israel's 51-year-old hold on the Golan as the proposal now "topping the agenda" in bilateral diplomatic talks with the United States.
Originally part of Syria, the Golan was captured by the Israeli army in 1967 during which Syria participated in the failed pan-Arab attempt to kill all Jews. The territory was subsequently annexed by Israel in 1981.

Following the disintegration of Syria there seems little alternative for the territory but to remain as part of Israel in relative peace and prosperity.

US recognition of Israel's sovereinty seems the next logical step for of all concerned.
Has the time has come international community to recognise the the reality that the Golan is part of Israel too?


Any such move would be seen as a follow-up on the US exit from the international nuclear deal with Iran, and President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the opening of a new US embassy there this month.

Once willing to consider returning the Golan for peace with Syria, the Israelis have in recent years argued that the civil war in Syria and the presence there of an Iranian garrison backing Damascus show they need to keep the strategic plateau.


Katz, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's security cabinet, cast the Golan proposal as a potential extension of the Trump administration's confrontational tack against perceived regional expansion and aggression by Iran, Israel's arch-enemy.


"This is the perfect time to make such a move. The most painful response you can give the Iranians is to recognize Israel's Golan sovereignty - with an American statement, a presidential proclamation, enshrined (in law)," he said.

This would be a complete sellout and an incentive for further Israeli territorial aggression. A third Munich Agreement (Jerusalem was the second one).

The Israelis really have a lot of leverage over the States.

Uncle Barrack might have tried - but still no chance
If you invade a country in an attempt to wipe them out then you have to accept the dire consequences if you fail

If you look at the polls there is much more support for Trumps Israel-policy among the Evangelical Christians than American Jews. Mike Pompeo has referred to the "Rapture". Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News (former GOP judge) has said the movement of the embassy to Jerusalem is the fulfillment of biblical prophesy. Fundamentalist Christians believe that the "return" of the Jews to biblical Israel will bring about the Second Coming of Christ, and that the "saved" will be "raptured" to heaven, while the rest of the worlds population will perish.

Americans have far less lefty baggage than Europeans
Most immigrants wanted to leave that behind them
Many of whom would have been victims of State socialism before emigrating

Lol
Israel has no interest in acquiring even an extra square inch of Arab infested lands beyond their current borders and Judea and Samaria
They are quite welcome to all of it
And its HUGE

The Golan is a buffer just as Sinai was a buffer although no longer required now. The Golan could be evacuated very quickly once security concerns are seen to be answered, although after the Gaza experience that may take some doing. On the other hand the future of Jerusalem will never be up for negotiation.

Dont think there will ever be the need to evacuate the Golan
Israel has military superiority over all it commands
And that will always pertain so long as Arabs control their adjacent regions

Excellent news if true. The Golan is Israeli and the people there for sure and certain do not want to return to Syria. Far better that a peaceful democratic country have the territory than a brutal dictatorship.

It would have as much meaning as the Americans and Israelis declaring the Earth was flat, empty rhetoric from two deluded chums.

So an ancient Israelite people lived in the land of Israel once upon a time. It doesn't give Benjamin Millikovsky any rights to own that land today.

The acquisition of sovereignty over the territory by force should not be legalized. But in any case it would violate UNSCR 242.

The Zionist State is though an extremely dictatorship for close to a majority of the people who live under it. I know you people hate Muslims and hatred stops people thinking clearly however you should at least realize that the Zionists are in league with the most disquieting Sunni Muslims in the region, for instance they have used the Golan in the past to help out ISIL and are best buddies with Saudi Arabia.
