U.S. Recognizes Israeli Sovereignty Over Golan Heights As Israeli Military Bombs Gaza Strip

Donate

On March 25, US President Donald Trump signed a proclamation recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights. The area was seized from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War.

In a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump hailed the “powerful” relationships between the US and Israel. The Israeli Prime Minister called the signing “historic justice” and a “diplomatic victory.”

Syria already reacted to this event by describing it as an attack on its sovereignty and territorial integiry.

According to experts, the US move will lead to a further growth of tensions in the Middle East.

Furthermore, this decision came amid reports that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have resumed strikes on the Gaza Strip. The strikes came in response to an earlier event in which a rocket launched from the Gaza Strip destroyed a house near Tel Aviv. The incident prompted Netanyahu to cut his trip to the US short. Returning to Israel, Netanyahu vowed to respond “forcefully.”

US President Trump also lent his support to the Israeli strikes, recognizing Israel’s “right to defend itself.”

    ISRAELI BOMBING A NATION THAT DOES NOT HAVE A PROPER ARMY …WHAT A BULLY

    • Nowruz

      There’s a reason why they install puppet leaders in stronger countries i.e. Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and those other gulf monarch countries.

      • Saddam Hussein

        True. The Arab people (even in Saudi) are still good despite their puppet govts and would never accept fighting alongside the Israelis against Iran. The media attack against Iran will fail 9/10 Arabs still consider Israel to be their greatest enemy.

        • Jens Holm

          Far out conclusions on an artificial background like a bad videogame.

          Arabs not even are one….Strange You havnt seen that in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and several other places.

          You are kept. And You are kept stupid. And You are learned even to insist in that.

  • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

    Syrian regime change is still on the cards. USA do not want syria to reclaim golan heights once SDF are wiped

    • Saddam Hussein

      The Zionist and their puppets in Washington have thrown everything they have and President Assad is still in power. They wont get regime change.

    • Sukhoi

      lol please try. Russia can lock down entire Syrian Airspace ANY time with its S-300/S-400. Plus they have nuclear armed submarines and warships on the coast prepared for any provocation :) US has embarassd itself with its failed proxy war using Al-Nusra, FSA, and ISIS. They shouldn’t be stupid enough to try anything else, unless they want to see Russian Topol ICBMs or nuclear tipped Iskanders stationed in Syria ;)

      • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

        SDF is USA’s new terrorist proxy force. USA still have plenty of shock troops in the region.

        Also as the Israel syrian war never officially ended (a line used by pro israel aggressors anytime Israel attacks syria) then Syria would have every right to try and reclaim golan heights once SDF / ISIS are defeated.

        trumps ‘announcement’ means that they will propagandise a reason to enter golan heights if hostilities ever resumed

        from a USA perspective its a bold move and pretty watertight to say Israel has sovereignity over golan heights.

        Also ISIS were melted into SDF ranks fairly swiftly as Idlib liberation is getting hotter

        (I support assad’s right to rule his country and i support Russia’s intervention btw)

        As far as air defense goes in Syria, it is all under one central command which is Russian so an attack on air defenses technically could be viewed as a direct attack on Russia. israel regularly use civilian aircraft as cover still, and this is impeding russian dominance.

        i do agree that Russia does have the upper hand against Israel. but with USA support any attacks on the s-300 or s-400’s is susceptible to being overpowered by numbers and running out of ammunition and getting whacked between reloads. Extremely expensive for USA but possible

      • Jens Holm

        Again I read only crap. Even Israel has more jets then Russia have missiles.

        The rest is stupidisme. As usual You assume fx USA and Israel will be sitting in good chairs as ducks. They wont.

    The timing is coincidental, but IMO the war in Gaza won’t be Arab v Israeli, but Arab v Arab. Here’s why:
    1) Hamas sponsored demonstrations are on the wane, they are either bankrupt or hurting for money.
    2) Hamas is considering compromising with Israel (that entails renouncing their charter sworn to destroy Israel).
    3) Islamic Jihad (IJ) has been gaining grassroots support in Gaza. They’re
    an organization that has an identical ideology to Hamas, but have their
    own commanders.
    4) The most recent attacks have neither been in
    reaction to anything, nor is anyone eager to take credit. This is highly
    unusual for Palestinian groups, as their organizations typically boast
    their accomplishments in order to gain grassroots support and foreign
    backers.
    The theory I have for this recent round of fighting is
    that a war is brewing on the streets of Gaza. IJ and their friends
    inside Hamas have been launching these attacks to A) thwart negotiation
    and ensure Hamas keeps fighting, B) gain grassroots support by word of
    mouth, and C) provoke retaliatory strikes with which IJ can incentivize
    all Gazans to fight for them. That last bit is important, because if
    Hamas joins in the fighting then Hamas is effectively taking orders from
    IJ, whereas if they don’t then Hamas will be branded traitors and would
    be ousted from power.
    Listen carefully, soon enough IJ and Hamas
    will start calling each other collaborators, that will be the sign that
    war has started between the two.

  • Nowruz

    How ironic that the Hamas allegedly struck settlers in the Apartheid State before Trump officially recognizes Golan Heights as Israeli territory. You can’t make this stuff up. Assad can not lose Golan Heights to Israel. It’s too important in terms of natural resources and a strategic military position. This would also help Bibi’s chances in the upcoming elections. Syria will know who their allies are very soon. Golan Heights literally is the reason why Russia got involvement. Now since the US backedSDF controls the northeastern Syria along with the US recognizing Golan Heights as Israeli territory, this puts Russia’s economy in jeopardy (US backed pipeline into Europe). Mostly in terms of the gas reserves there…

  • Saddam Hussein

    I declare New York to be part of Syria.

    • Nowruz

      The stench of zionist is too overbearing there. They can keep it, haha.

      • Sukhoi

        as the nose surface area/nose volume increases, the zionism increases, as does the lust for money and power

      • Saddam Hussein

        What part of the US doesnt have Zionists? Mmmm…maybe we can have Montana. Done.

          They probatly will not let You in, even You paid for it. This is worse the red october.

      This settles Crimea and Eastern Ukraine :)

      Everybody can declare this and that. This is about keep.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Well, the Jew bastard Putin has hardly condemned this disgusting Americunt “partners” stunt either. Rational people should never forget the Zionist agenda of destroying every Arab country and creating a “greater Israel’. The Arab puppet regimes are colluding with Zionists. Why do think they killed Saddam Hussein?

    • Joao Paulo Calife

      Too late. NY was declared part of Israel a long time agl

    • d’Artagnan

      The Palestinians have been sold down the drain, largely due to their own disunity and inability to resist effectively.

  • Sukhoi

    Let’s talk about how a homemade Palestinian rocket traveled 120KM OVER ISRAEL and successfully hit a target WITHOUT being SPOTTED or INTERCEPTED by Israeli Air Defenses? What a joke the THAAD, Arrow, and Iron Dome are. At least Russian Air Defenses actually INTERCEPT most if not all of their targets

    • Saddam Hussein

      The iron dome is just a meme, just like the IDF. They cant even beat a joke militant group like Hamas, imagine if the Tiger Forces and Hezbollah attacked them.

      • Sukhoi

        Lol the Diaper Army would be crying and need therapy ASAP in that event. Plus with Syrian Air Space locked down, and Hezbollah pointing over 150,000 missiles at them, they’d have no chance.

        • LR captain

          what would end up happening is that the Golan highs would be returned to syria and northern Israel would be under UN peacekeeping missions.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        why imagine have you forget what happen to them when they attacked hezbollah in lebanon? So nothing to imagine you have the answer .

        • LR captain

          Hezbollah does capability to wipe Israels 1st 2nd defenses and can destroy tons of military infrastructure in northern Israel.

          But please try to remember that Hezbollah is not business of conquering territory so i don’t expect them to move in and destroy Israel. But to clear the northern part of any IDF. forcing Israel to cry for UN peace keepers to patrol the area.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            I never suggested or said that Hez has intention or is planning to invade Palestine. Read again what I said. As for what they can do only can be proven on the field and not here.

          • LR captain

            im sorry, im just used to seeing people think that Hezbollah will outright wipe Israel off the map.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            for that they dont need to invade israel the missiles they have if they unleash them on israel will be enough, but then events have yet to come to this point so let us not run ahead of reality and speculate.

          • LR captain

            well as long as a civilian government survives the end result will be UN peace keepers being sent in, That is if Hamas and the SAA does not get in involved.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            UN is been a joke since the day is been created and the whole world is not walking toward peace but a total war, at least as things stand now. One question what part are you missing that is civilian governments that bring the world once more a step away from oblivion?

            And the reason is simple stupid ignorant civilians voting worthless pieces of shit, as their leaders. The joke in what you saying is. UN peacekeepers. maybe is time you rethink and search this peacekeepers actions and history?

          • LR captain

            when I meant UN peacekeepers i was simply stating that the Zionists will cry uncle. Then uncle sam will use the UN stop Hezbollah wrecking more of Israels infrastructure. Israel will call for peace keepers cause they won’t to risk anymore Zionist lives. They will want other people to die for them instead.

            You are right The UN is a joke and a tool meant to be used only by uncle sam and the big nosed Zionists.

            However if Hamas and SAA join the fight the Israelis would not get the chance to cry uncle.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            IF ever an attack against israel is happen, that I very much doubt it, since both russians and EU/americans both protecting them and their atrocities no matter what some say in public statements is just that empty words, it will be a very short destructive war, that israel will cease to exist.

            Syria – iran and hezbollah know that in very short time must inflict so much damage to israel that what happen after nothing will be able save it and sustain it. It will be a war of missiles and not an invasion. The missile fire power only hezbollah has, is enough to level israel. A small country size wise with 90% of her population in towns figure out the rest.

          • LR captain

            honestly then were gonna have to settle on different opinions and predictions. As i think the US will try to save it. Also Israel would rather nuke itself rather give the land back to the Arabs.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            try to save and saving it, is two different issues. And it does not take much to start raining missiles. I am sure not only the americans, but nato will try to save them, but in a scenario of an all out war with israel, it take less than ten hours to demolish it, so their allies will save what exactly?

          • LR captain

            please read my other comments though i never stated that is was an all out war. one of few times i did state that if the hamas and SAA joined there be nothing left to save as Israel would detonated its nukes on its home.

            now are we done or will I have to nit pick every one of both of are comments.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            hamas is a tool controlled by what you think they are fighting at least on the top levels and they dont have neither the trained people or the weapons to do any war or join any one, especially SAA. You may not know who they are but I assure you syrians and Hez know exactly who they are and who they serve so joining with them is a fantasy, no offense mean here, of yours.

            try and educate yourself of reality on the ground there and who is who, as well whom they serve. As for your assumption of nukes……….. I leave it to your imagination you seem to have a lot of it. and yes we are done with this conversation, or at least is the last time I answer in this lines.

          • LR captain

            Israel has nukes that is a fact
            Hamas is controlled by Qatar
            Syria is held back by the Russians.
            Hezbollah can bring Israel to its knees
            that is situation on the ground.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            Yes they do but think it this way. Have you ever think what will happen if the nukes are used in ME?

            The oil will stop flowing into the world not to mention the side effects. Also using nukes right on your borders means you also be effected by the fall out and not only. I very much doubt that real nuclear powers, will ever allow this to happen and israel knows it and has been warned about it.

          • LR captain

            if the country is gonna collapse due to a united Hezbollah and SAA forces. then the Zionist will not care, they would rather nuke their own land than give it back. Not one of them will want to be around to answer for the crimes they committed. these are my points

            1 Zionists are truly insane and are religious zealots
            2 in the first 10 hours like you said the military infrastructure will be destroyed by rockets so even if the the threat of nukes gets the SAA and Hezbollah to back off. It won’t get the oppressed Arabs to stop trying to overrun the last of the IDF in security checkpoints.
            3 Even if the US does say that it will get 20,000 troops in Israel in three days (probably an overestimation) nuking the ME will serve as final F U to the US for not doing enough fast enough (that is in their corrupted mind way of thinking)
            4 any military that survive collapse of Israel (if nuke are not used) will be put on trial for war crimes then most likely executed. So they know they are gonna die.
            5 If Arabs manage to over throw whats left of IDF, they then will try to deport as many Zionist as possible. But no one will want them. (except maybe the US)
            6 even is the Zionist does manage to keep itself together after threatening with nukes. The Russians, Chinese and a few European countries will treat Israel as rouge state.
            7 Iran would get a green light to ramp up it Nuclear weapons program full speed.
            8 the boycott Israel movement would gain more and more speed. leading to a “markets open but no one will buy Israeli products.” situation.

            so honesty between them going out with a bang and ruining the world for everyone who did treat them well enough. Vs barely surviving and facing a even more hostile world were even US cannot guarantee their safety and impunity on the world stage. A world where they must answering for their crimes.

            I think there Zionist snow fakes would choose the nukes.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            that is your conclusion… ask your self if you mass suicide if you was in their shoes. I dont disagree with you in many points you making but your conclusions as to what the israelis will do are very far from reality. Is one think farting as they do and another what you suggesting they will.

          • LR captain

            fair enough
            but can never reality predict what Zionists would do as they are truly insane. (self preservation vs revenge)

            But just out curiosity with points did you agree with?

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            that is where you are absolutely wrong and you obviously never study your enemies my friend. My advice stop thinking emotionally and actually study their deeds and try and understand your enemy better than you do now it may save your life one day soon.

          • LR captain

            wow you’re just going in circles. honestly were are never gonna understand each other, also i thought you said that you would stop responding to me a few comments, so im gonna stop now, let you get last laugh as that is what you want.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            no kid you just dont get it. understanding means also to have the knowledge of what you speaking about. You obviously dont. So stay with your illusions and fears.

          • LR captain

            and you can stay with yours

      • Mustafa Mehmet

        What they waithing for?

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      nothing to talk about. as all zionist make believe weapons are worthless unless they are attacking defenseless and unarmed civilians. BUT……….. they cost a lot of money.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      p.s. was not a home made rocket.

    It mean nothing,its not a UN recognition. All of the true independent sovereignty nation on earth the recognize it. The Syrian will receive theirs back,this only send a message to the swll out Arabs to start looking else for ssuppor and the USA have no interest in theirs at heart what so ever and they are dumb idiots. The US government style is the worst,they only knows one thing that is to destabilise and destroy any trust that have been created. They are forcing allies and natural Nation to look else cause they not to stand fairness ground.

      In all fairness, the Jew scum have more control over Russia. At least the Democrats do condemn racism and unchecked Zionist control over US. Why do you think the Republicans are pushing a bill to equate criticizing Zionism with “anti-Semiticism” whatever the fuck that means?
