Time for United States to recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights

Greece-Cyprus-Israel summit in Jerusalem

"It's time that the USA and the global community recognize that Israel is staying on the Golan and the fact that the Golan will always remain part of the State of Israel", the prime minster said. But Netanyahu, facing a tough challenge from a popular former military chief and reeling from a series of corruption allegations, has repeatedly sought to focus attention on his foreign policy record and strong ties with Trump.

Israel's prime minister has praised President Donald Trump's recognition of its control over the Golan Heights as a holiday "miracle".

"I hear he's doing okay". While Pompeo said this was "not a change in US policy", he said that the language used in the Human Rights Report was used "with great intentionality". "It is in the hands of Israel and will always remain in the hands of Israel", Graham said from a cliff overlooking Syria, where Syrian flags could be seen fluttering in the distance on buildings damaged in the country's civil war.

Netanyahu thanked Trump for the Golan Heights gesture.

"Tonight, President Trump made the decision to recognize that that hard-fought real estate, that important place, is proper to be a sovereign part of the state of Israel", he said.

Netanyahu, the Israeli PM, quickly tweeted his gratitude.

Most in Israel celebrated Trump's tweet Thursday, declaring that the time has come to "fully recognize Israel's Sovereignty over the Golan Heights". He added: "Thank you President Trump!"

Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul Gheit announced that the league fully supports Syrian sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Already, the State Department took the surprise move last week to remove the phrase "occupied" when referring to Israeli sections of the Golan Heights in its 2018 human rights report.

"Attempts by the U.S.to legitimize Israel's actions against worldwide law will only lead to more violence and pain in the region", Çavuşoğlu wrote in a tweet.

The prime minister accused Tehran on Thursday of attempting to set up a terrorist network to target Israel from the Golan Heights, using Hezbollah militia groups from Lebanon as mercenaries.

Furthermore, Trump's move may slow down Israel's secret rapprochement with the Gulf states, he posited.

President Donald Trump on Thursday overturned longstanding USA policy regarding the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, announcing "it is time" for the U.S. to "fully recognize Israel's sovereignty" over the region.

Officials waved away any concerns about Israel's elections, the official said. Neither made any public comment at the site.

The Italians were drawn against Arsenal in the Europa League quarter-finals and will travel to London on April 11. Napoli players looked horrified as he was being stretched off, with keeper Alex Meret readying himself to come on.

No formal USA process or executive committees were initiated to review the policy before Trump's decision, and the diplomats responsible for implementing the policy were left in the dark. The official prime minister's Twitter page wrote.

Despite a 1981 United Nations resolution - backed by all 15 members of the Security Council, including the administration of Ronald Reagan - which stated that Israel's annexation of the Golan "is null and void and without worldwide legal effect", the Golan today sits in the center of Israeli consensus, with politicians of nearly all ideological stripes welcoming the USA president's intended recognition.

In the same week, Israel Defense Forces exposed an Iranian-backed terror outpost on the Syrian Golan.

After Israel first seized the Golan Heights in 1967, Israeli citizens nearly immediately began settling in the area.

However, Leon Panetta a veteran Democrat who served as Central Intelligence Agency director and defense secretary, among other roles, blasted Trump for "tweeting out another policy that obviously has not been worked out with our global partners".

The Israeli leader is facing several corruption investigations and a looming indictment by the country's attorney general, while USA politicians are anticipating the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on possible collusion between Trump's election campaign team and Russian Federation.

Trump's latest shakeup comes ahead of the expected unveiling of a White House plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace. Those states, however, have long rejected Israel's annexation of the Golan.
