Trump: It's Time For U.S. To Recognize Israel’s Sovereignty Over Golan Heights

President Donald Trump said on March 21 that it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.

“After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability,” Trump said on Twitter.

Israel occupied the Golan Heights by force during the 1967 war. The U.N. recognizes the region as a Syrian territory occupied by Israel. In 1981, the U.N. Security Council rejected an Israeli law meant to annex Golan and described the law in resolution 497 as “null and void.”

Despite the international status of the Golan Heights, several senior U.S. officials, including Senator Lindsey Graham,  jumped to supports Trump’s decision to gift the Syrian region to Israel.

“President Trump’s decision to recognize the Golan as part of Israel is strategically wise and overall awesome,” Graham said.

Graham is actively working with Senator Ted Cruz to pass a new bill in the Senta and the House to recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights. The bill would also promote the U.S. conducting “joint projects” with Israel in the Golan, including “industrial research and development.”

As expected, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is facing major internal challenges, welcomed Trump’s decision right away, calling it “bold.”

“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. Thank you President Trump,” the Israeli PM wrote on Twitter.

Netanyahu has been advocating for the annexation of the Golan Heights in the U.S. and the West in general for more than a year now.

The decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, if happened, will likely led to further growth of tensions in the Middle East. Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017 led to an ongoing wave of violence in the Gaza Strip and the Western Bank.

    I’m not surprised about this announcement. I believe I mentioned the US under the Trump admin would recognize Golan Heights as Israeli territory last year. After Idlib and al Tanf and other occupied regions in Syria controlled by the zionists are liberated then Golan Heights will be next, Inshallah.

    • Nathan Pilson

      COOL

  • Saddam Hussein

    This is good, let the Arabs and their allies wake up – if we want the Golan Heights back (and occupied Palestine), its gonna have to be taken back by force. The Israeli regime and their burger lapdog arent going to give it back thru negotiations and the UN.

    • chet380

      Let the missiles rain down on Tel Aviv and Haifa the day the proclamation is made.

      Very true. Force is how they get it. Force is how it should have been taken back. Force is the only very thing those degenerates understand.

    • Nathan Pilson

      and it will be taken by force.the zionist regime is at their weakest. their mercenary armies have been blown to pieces., the antisemitism propaganda ? Omar crushed.they attacked Gaza, and hit the wrong targets. they are like rabid dogs now. and you know the cure for that.

    Well, it looks like Bebe is going to get reelected.

    • Truth Addict

      Of course he is.

    • 1691

      It looks like there will be no election as there will be no state.

      • Snowglobe

        Well, this did strike me as a bone headed move. You are expecting there to be a swift retaliation? I don’t think that this is going to get ignored, but I don’t know what to expect..

        I pondered this all day yesterday. The first thing that comes to mind is that Trump is playing to the evangelical base because the US is already in full election mode. This is typical.

        The second thought came after listening to a talking point time after time yesterday. They kept saying that Netanyahu slept in the young Jared Kushner’s bed when he stay at the family home.

        Was the kid in the bed?

        • 1691

          Sleeping at Kushner’s is an old news unless this time bibi was saving on accommodation and making up for financial misconduct.
          What I read is making me wonder if some have not reached the end of the road.

          • Snowglobe

            My thinking is muddied with other things as well. They have the Epstein Island disgrace back in court three days ago and there have been two lawsuits filed to try to block the opening of things based on privacy issues. The freaks do not like the daylight.

            The repeated referral not of staying at the house, but instead to the bed made me wonder if there is blackmail being held over someones head. Who knows, and hopefully time will tell.

            I agree that there are some that may be reaching the end of their road. It is unclear who it will be though. I certainly have some favorites that I would like to see gone. ;-)

          • Snowglobe

            Well, well, well! It has come out in a new Clinton email that she was planning a secret back channel to Bibi. Trump will have to back off perhaps?

    In reality, the Anglo-Americans recognize the Golan Heights as theirs. The Israel they created has only done the dirty job of stealing and occupying it.

    • DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

      Thanks, didnt know this quote before!

    • Joe Kerr

      “Israel and its Anglo-American master”… the way Trump grovels to Netanyahu and kisses his butt suggests who really is master, and who is servant.

      • Nathan Pilson

        NO Anglo Saxon I know Loves Israel. he anglo bought out politicians which congresswoman Omar referred to ,do not even love Israel. they are only extorted by russian mobsters, playing jew.the cat is out of the bag,this israel is nothing but a russian satellite, and Putin is probably going to be liable for war crimes with netanyahu,.,especially after the war in the golan.which is SYRIAN TERRITORY. the greater israel project is a flop.rabbinical lies

    • Rob

      Zionists are thugs childbutchers and Trump is their leader. LOL

    • Nathan Pilson

      Anglo Americans do not want Israel or Golan. we trust our God and his son Jesus. nothing in the middle East interest us.but we do love Palestine. they have been oppressed by zionism.

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      Zionist pre-date the USA. Zionist pre-date the UK-empire.
      Zionist killed Muhammad. Zionist murdered Christ Immaunel.
      Zionist made a neighboring tribe circumcise themselves then the Zionist slaughtered them all like pigs. Zionism is at least 4,000 years old. The US and England is not 4,000 years old.
      Zionism migrated from the Middle East into occupying other peoples tribal lands.

      • Omega

        Don’t confuse religious Zionism with Modern Zionism (something most Jews rejected before WW2).

  • ColinNZ

    It’s time for the UN to recognise US terrorism over planet Earth.

    • Truth Addict

      The UN is itself a terrorist organization.

  • Smaug

    Quit abusing the term destabilize, South Front, and let me inform you.
    In 1973 Ba’athist Syria blitzed to retake the Golan, and lost badly. The 1974 ceasefire that resulted from that forced Syria to recognize Israel’s control over the Golan. Since then, the local Druze people applied for Israeli citizenship and Jewish people invested in the area, so Israel decided to annex it. This will not result in any action on the part of Syria, as Assad agreed to abide by the terms of the 1974 ceasefire when he retook southern Syria last year.
    I’m not saying how things SHOULD be, I’m saying that at the moment that is the way things ARE.

    • verner

      the squatters should be kicked far into the Med as soon as possible by the forces surrounding the land the squatters presently occupy. it will happen and the sooner the better. nitwit!

    • antarcticus

      Wrong. And I quote:
      Bashar al-Assad: “Syria’s belief in just and comprehensive peace doesn’t mean relinquishing a speck of soil or a drop of water, affirming that the Syrian Arab Golan will remain Arab and Syrian and will return to the homeland Syria.”

      • Smaug

        They all say that, and they’re all liars.

    • Omega

      You should get your facts in order before spitting out such absurdity and thinking that you inform anyone with anything.

      In no shape or form did Syria recognize the control of the Golan Heights to Israel following the disengagement agreement of 1974. The clauses were centered around the exhange of war prisoners, the Israeli withdrawal beyond the cease fire line of 1967 and the establishment of a buffer zone with news lines that have since then been considered the “borders” between the two.

      Israel illegally annexed the Golan Heights in 1981 and not 1974. It had nothing to do with some Druze adopting the Israeli citizenship and/or Israeli investments. The thieving vermin at the Knesset voted and imposed it.

    • H Eccles

      “The 1974 ceasefire that resulted from that forced Syria to recognize Israel’s control over the Golan”.

      Syria doesn’t recognise Israel let alone control over the Golan…

      Never has a commnenter pucked so much crap out of his own orfice as in the comment by Smaug. I suppose it’s the only way the cockroaches can make Israel look good.

  • verner

    no it is not – all land is stolen by the squatters and must be returned to the rightful owners – the palestinians. that halfwit trump is under some squatters spell, i.e. son in law, is no excuse for handing over the Golan heights to the squatters and neither is it an idea to allow the squatters to take full advantage of the gas find under the sea bed outside palestine.

    the squatters are running an ethnical cleansing program directed against all palestinians, or with other words a DEPALESTINATION-program.

    the squatters are running a steal all land on the west bank program equal to hitler’s LEBENSRAUM-idea

    the squatters are operating CONCENTRATION CAMP GAZA where the focal point is ethnical cleansing through starvation, lack of healthcare and general deprivation of all basic needs.

    the world should not allow this genocide by the squatters on the palestinian people to take place.

    the squatters need to be stopped and sent on to their next diaspora inclusive of pogroms, which they in every respect deserve.

    The man is simply an idiot with no understanding of what damage he is doing.

    And what god gave America the authority to approve the theft of other people’s land?

    Or to set the boundaries for other states?

    I do wish a gang of Mexican illegal migrants would seize Mar-a-Lago and proclaim it as eternally theirs.

    It would make every bit as much sense as what the fanatics of Israel have done.

      I remember trump making israel `s capital jerusalem. you could not get 5 crickets to chirp.and what about that embassy gig? has anyone move their embassies there? or recognized it or ours? maybe about 2 countries. so much for the greater israel fail. we give zionist too much credit due to press manipulation of events.

    According to USA only what USA favors have sovereignty.Syria dont open Syrian side of the border before Idlib is not free.

    Why Trump is supporting Netanyahoo in his election campaigns? Is it because he want Netanyahoo to stay in office or is it because Netanyahoo have Kompromat on Trump?

    Trump is foolish dotart mentally ill Pentagon spokesman. Bolton told him to recognize Jerusalem know Pompeo convince him to recognize Golan heights.

    Not going to happen. If we do that then the world becomes a free for all and wars for land aquisition will start across the globe.
    Trump can want what he wants.

    It is time for Mexico to get back Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, California, Arizona too.

      • rafa374

        You didn’t hear? Next year, New York will be recognized by Trump as an inalienable outpost of Israel – as recognized in the Bible. He is, after all, going to need a lot of money for his re-election bid.

  • Joe Kerr

    With Trump, zionist control of the U.S. is now complete and total, so no effort will be spared by the zio-mafia to push Trump as far as they can to accommodate their agenda, eretz Israel. Perhaps the seeds planted by the likes of Ilhan Omar, AOC, Tlaib and others in the wake of last year’s congressional elections are making the Tribe a little impatient… as after Trump, the only way for them is down.

      The Trumpster is not only disregarding International Law and sovereign rights but also UN rules and their repeated demands for the isreali regime to leave Syrian land. This will have major repercussions and will definitely unite the whole region with a common goal, ie: to stop the greater isreali regime plans for thieving other people’s property like common criminals.

        I agree. It is one more policy with auto-destruct results built into it.

    He didnt even have a majority at he US elections.

    He is trying so hard to prove he is not Putin’s puppet…its so amusing to watch…

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      Not the first. FDR was a dictator who served 4 terms, the 4th their was not even an election held lol. He did not have majority.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    You know I will hand it to the Israelis. They do seem to want it more. When Israeli solders stormed the Syrian bunker network, their was no technology at work when Israel went head to head against Syrian solders. It was solder against solder. The Syrians gave up, surrendered and just rolled over and died without much of a fight. The Syrians never seemed to fight very hard for it. And in 50 something years Syria has not done squat to regain it.
    Syria had a fast arsenal of chemical weapons up till Russia forced them to surrender.
    Syria should have launched every thing they had against the Zionist when the had decades of chances.
    I say the side willing to fight and die for it right now deserves it.
    If Syria does not want to use what they got to defend Syria, then Syria is destined to be fully conquered by Israel.
    This internal ‘civil’ war in Syria right now would have never happened if 20 years ago Syria had fought tooth and nail to liberate their own heart of their country.
    Apparently Jews are smarter, wiser, stronger, braver and better at international public relations.
    Also, Israel builds friendships with people who will fight with them for the land.
    However Syrian friends are scared of Israel lol. (except for the small civilian Lebanese militia)
    But no nation state will dare accept Israels challenges.

    If they wont go grab it back right now today, then Syria will have none of it 5 years from now.
    Simply Basic Logic.

    For a moment, i wanted to see what movie Netanyahoo watches, only to be disappointed that Southfront paraphrased him. lol The US has no legal basis to justify recognizing the annexation of the Golan Heights. War or conquest is not justification and this just shows that nothing has changed since ancient times. Even India retreats to the line of control. lol

  • verner

    trump is unaware of the fact that the more he bleats the message his son in law, kushner, wishes him to bleat, the more anti-zionistic the world becomes. he doesn’t realise, and that is because he’s an ass (as in donkey), that the world rapidly is turning against the squatters and that the world is tired of the atrocities perpetrated by the squatters,

    like the DEPALESTINATION-program,

    like the land-theft on the west bank i.e. the LEBENSRAUM-program or

    like the operation of CONCENTRATION CAMP GAZA.

    all three straight out of adolf hitlers scrap book.

    to be an anti-zionist today is a badge of honour (despite what macron, former rotschild banker, wants it to be).

    any anti-semitism in western societies today is because the squatters incite it themselves by their atrocities in the stolen land and that the various jewish groups (people, groups like aipac, synagogue congregations und zu weiter) in the west provide financial sustenance for the squatters to perpetrate the genocide and crime against humanity – straight forward causes for the international criminal court.
