JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel is pressing the Trump administration to recognize its sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, an Israeli cabinet minister said on Wednesday, predicting U.S. assent could come within months.

Interviewed by Reuters, Intelligence Minister Israel Katz described endorsement of Israel’s 51-year-old hold on the Golan as the proposal now “topping the agenda” in bilateral diplomatic talks with the United States.

Any such move would be seen as a follow-up on the U.S. exit from the international nuclear deal with Iran, and President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the opening of a new U.S. embassy there this month.

Trump’s moves were hailed by Israel and caused deep concern among major European allies of Washington.

1. The problem is, when it comes to Syria Bibi wants the whole thing.

This Trump concession will only leave him hungry for more.

2. Get in bed with criminals

 

And you'll end up with criminal policies.

Europe and Asia do NOT support this and it will isolate the US even more.

5. Yes, let's help them.

 

After all, they only murdered 34 Marines and Sailors and wounded 171 more with their premeditated attacks on the USS Liberty. They wanted to make sure that the spy ship under the command of The National Security Agency would not pick up any chatter about their attack on the Golan Heights. Unfortunately they were working with faulty intel. There were not any Hebrew linguists on her. Only Russian linguists.

7. That will backfire.....

...in a real bad way.

Not only will the EU condemn it, even Russia may change positions and arm Syria even further, along with Iran. This could even unite the Sunni and Shiite factions again.
