U.S. must recognise Israeli sovereignty over Golan

U.S. must recognise Israeli sovereignty over Golan

"A new flurry of reports suggesting Israel may formally annex the occupied Golan Heights is music to the ears of Bashar al-Assad, a mass murderer who would welcome a decisive change of subject from his own criminality to what he will characterize as Israel's theft of Syrian land", Hof said.

He said: "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!"

"It is in the hands of Israel and will always remain in the hands of Israel", he said at the time.

Netanyahu thanked Pompeo for the Trump administration's strong stance against Iran, which Israel regards as an existential threat.

O'Rourke, the 15th Democrat to declare his bid for the White House, accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of having "openly sided with racists" in the Jewish state.

A recent state department human rights report broke with past USA practice referring to the Golan, which Israel captured in 1967, as "Israeli-controlled" rather than "Israeli-occupied". "Thank you President Trump!" "You would have Iran on the shores of the Sea of Galilee".

The Golan has occasionally been struck by missiles and other forms of fire from Syria in recent years, with Israel retaliating against Syrian and Iranian targets.

He is dining with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo this week. "We need to increase it".

Since his inauguration, Trump has been well received in Israel, where he has won plaudits for recognizing Jerusalem as the city's capital and pulling out of the 2015 nuclear deal meant to limit Iran's nuclear program, which Netanyahu strongly opposed.

The Palestinians have pre-emptively rejected a peace plan the White House is said to be preparing, saying that the Trump administration is unfairly biased toward Israel.

Netanyahu had previously urged top U.S. officials to make the declaration and he is expected to meet with Trump at the White House in the coming days. "It's a place that's important to many faiths and I'm looking forward to it".

Pompeo arrived in Jerusalem after a stop in Kuwait, where he renewed calls for a resolution to a festering dispute between Qatar and four other Arab nations, all of them America's partners in the Middle East. Kuwait has been attempting to mediate an end to the crisis.

Pompeo has said his trip has nothing to do with politics.

Pompeo also reinforced Rivlin's veiled warning that Israel could retaliate against Lebanon for any Hezbollah attack: "We all know the risk, right?"
