President Trump has shocked the world … again.
This time because he signed an executive order officially recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
Heads are spinning…
The UN said, “Don’t do it.”
Socialist Democrats said, “Don’t do it.”
Iran and the militant Palestinians said, “Don’t do it!”
But he did it.
The last time I visited the Golan Heights, it was peaceful … until some rockets were fired into the area of Iran-supported militants.
The Golan Heights is central to Israel’s survival:
- It provides a 7.5- to 15.5-mile-wide buffer zone between Israel and Syria.
- It stretches 40 miles from south to north … beginning at the southern tip of the Sea of Galilee along the eastern shore and running northward to Mount Hermon on the Lebanese border.
The Golan Heights was part of ancient Israel during Bible times … but became part of the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century…
It was recaptured by Israel from Syria during the Six-Day War in 1967 – and was annexed by Israel in 1981.
The territory is economically growing under Israel’s rule.
The Golan Heights is critical to Israel’s peace and sovereignty as a nation.
Because the territory has been used to stage attacks against Israel by those hostile to her very existence, and terror groups largely funded by Iran would do so again if given the opportunity.
Despite the political opposition, Trump’s bold move was applauded by Israel … by those who support Israel … and by those who love freedom.
It wasn’t long ago that the world was shocked by Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel … and ordering the U.S. embassy to be moved there from Tel Aviv.
And now, the socialists and the Israel-haters are beside themselves again…
