Golan Heights

American Jews on the Brink of Civil War

After decades of tilting left-liberal in the most conventional sense, something may be brewing among American Jewry that could result in real change, if it doesn't start an internal civil war. The day Donald Trump announced the recognition of Israeli control of the Golan Heights is the same day it was reported that none--that's zero--- of the many 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidates would be speaking at or attending the AIPAC (America-Israel Public Affairs Committee) annual meeting later this month.

Time for U.S. to Recognize Israeli Sovereignty over Golan

Now is the time for Trump to act.  He was able to move the embassy to Jerusalem. The predicted outbursts did not occur and other nations are beginning to follow suit. The next logical step would be the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan.  The moment is particularly propitious because of the Syria withdrawal.  Friends of Israel are concerned for the safety of the one nation that is a reliable U.S. ally in the region (arguably the most reliable US ally anywhere). Take the Golan off the table. Do it, Donald!
