It’s Not Just Trump! Congress Too Wants to Recognize Israel’s Illegal Annexation of the Syrian Golan

  • It’s Not Just Trump! Congress Too Wants to Recognize Israel’s Illegal Annexation of the Syrian Golan

    Because Trump’s pronouncements on social media are often bizarre, the attention people give them tends inadvertently to obscure the larger political picture in the U.S. Take, for example, Trump’s tweet on recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Syrian Golan Heights. Few people are aware what Congress is doing in that regard.

    The Golan Heights is Syrian territory. In the June 1967 war, along with the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Israel captured most of it.

The vote was a record with 99 in favor, 10 against and 66 abstentions. This was followed by a General Assembly vote in favor of a resolution (also overwhelmingly passed) on the permanent sovereignty of Syria over the natural resources of the Golan Heights.
