Golan Heights: Trump Wants It Recognized as Israel’s Land — War Provocation

  • It’s time for US to fully recognize Israel’s ‘sovereignty’ over disputed Golan Heights – Trump
    US President Donald Trump has said that the time has come for the United States to “fully recognize” Israel’s sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights, seized from Syria during the Six-Day War in 1967.

    In a tweet on Thursday, Trump said the Golan Heights are “of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel” and to “regional security.” His decision will be seen as a diplomatic coup for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    The move comes after the US State Department dropped the word “occupied” in relation to the Golan Heights in its annual human rights report for 2018, published last week. Responding on Twitter, Netanyahu thanked Trump for “boldly recognizing” Israel’s sovereignty over the land.

    Netanyahu had previously urged top US officials to make the declaration and he is expected to meet with Trump at the White House in the coming days. Meanwhile, the Secretary General of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, said that the organization “strongly supports” Syria’s sovereignty over the Occupied Golan Heights. Russia also criticized Trump’s idea, saying that it is aimed at sowing discord within the Arab world.

    “Russia will never support such a recognition,”
    Oleg Morozov, a member of the Russian Senate’s International Affairs Committee said, as cited by the RIA news agency.

  1. The Roman town of Caesarea Philippi is part of the foothill of the Golan Heights where Jesus said to Peter “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter (little stone), and upon this rock (the entire hill is a monolith) I will build my church; and the gates of hell ( tourist spot there as Cave of Pan ) shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16)

    You can google the Cave of Pan in Google map: 33.2488437,35.6944376 where Jezebel throw baby sacrifice to lure Baal to come out for rain, Greek called it the grotto of Pan, and King Philip built the temple of Augustus along with many recesses (alcoves) for a collection of idols like the Pantheon of Rome.

    The Church was built on Jesus our Rock above all the world religions below. That is why the cave of Hell cannot defeat the body of Christ.
