The U.S. to Recognize Israeli Sovereignty Over Golan Next Week


The White House may be preparing to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, say, senior Israeli officials, suggesting that an announcement regarding recognition could come as early as next week.

According to a report Thursday morning by Israel’s Channel 13, senior Israeli officials believe the Trump administration is preparing to formally recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights – ending a decades-long US policy of non-recognition of Israel’s annexation of the strategic plateau.

The officials cited by the report say the US could announce plans to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan as early as next week, coinciding with Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu’s meeting with President Donald Trump in Washington, during the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference.

Israel captured the Heights from Syria during the Six Day War in June, 1967, after the Syrian army used the strategic high ground overlooking the Galilee to attack Israeli towns and farms.

From 1967 to 1981, Israel administered the Golan Heights via military law, mirroring the system used in Judea, Samaria, and the Gaza Strip. Roughly two-thirds of the Golan Heights remained under Israeli control following the 1973 Yom Kippur War and creation of a demilitarized zone between Syria and Israel.

In 1981, however, the Menachem Begin government applied Israeli law directly to the Golan Heights with the Golan Heights Law, effectively annexing the territory to the State of Israel.

The United Nations and major world powers, including the US, Russia, and the European Union have hitherto refused to recognize Israel’s annexation of the Golan.

Since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war in 2011, however, some US lawmakers have called for the State Department to recognize Israel’s annexation of the Golan.

Last year, Senators Tom Cotton (R.-Arkansas) and Ted Cruz (R.-Texas) proposed a resolution endorsing recognition of the Golan as sovereign Israeli territory.

Earlier this month, the State Department signaled a change in policy towards the Golan, dropping references to the “Israeli-occupied Golan”, referring to the territory instead with the more neutral phrase “Israeli-controlled”.

The move drew criticism, however, from former United States Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk, who said the Golan Heights are “Syrian territory.”

“Like it or not, the Golan Heights are Syrian territory.”

“Israel cannot give them up now given its legitimate security concerns. But to recognize Israel’s annexation of territory that is not its own is to play with fire for partisan political purposes. No Arab state will accept it,” Indyk tweeted.

“It would also contravene the 1974 Israel-Syria Disengagement Agreement, which Netanyahu and Putin recently invoked to govern the resumption of Syrian government responsibilities on the Golan border with Israel.” (Click to Source)

Israeli Minister: Turkey’s President Erdogan an anti-Semite


The war of words continues between the leaders of Israel and Turkey; Minister Erdan regrets reconciliation with Turkey, saying Erdogan is an anti-Semite.

By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News

Just a day after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan exchanged vicious barbs, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan expressed regret that Israel had agreed to reconciliation with Turkey in 2016. Asked about the détente reached between the two countries, ending six years of animosity after the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident, Erdan said, “The agreement should not have been approved, and trying to improve ties with Turkey was a mistake.”

Erdan then went on to brand Erdogan “an anti-Semite who continues to support Hamas.”

As a condition to repair ties, Israel had agreed to pay monetary compensation to the families of Turkish citizens killed during the 2010 flotilla incident.

Erdan rationalized his decision to vote in favor of the rapprochement agreement with Turkey at the time, saying that Netanyahu had convinced him that Turkish pressure on Hamas might lead to the return of the bodies of Israeli soldiers still held by the terrorist group.

Erdan says that now is the time for Israel to “stand up to the hostility and anti-Semitism of Erdogan.”

“It’s odd for a country such as Turkey, which is massacring the Kurds and occupying northern Cyprus, to be accepted as a legitimate nation by the West,” the minister noted. He then touched on a particularly sore nerve with the Turks, telling Army Radio, “It’s possible Israel should have acted against Turkey in the international arena and recognized the Armenian genocide committed by the Ottoman Empire.”

On Friday, Erdogan started the nasty exchange by attacking the IDF’s defense of its border with Gaza, where 30,000 Palestinians gathered in an attempt to infiltrate the Jewish state, saying, “I strongly condemn the Israeli government over its inhumane attack.”

“I do not need to tell the world how cruel the Israeli army is. We can see what this terror state is doing by looking at the situation in Gaza and Jerusalem,” he stated., adding that Israel “has carried out a massacre in Gaza and Netanyahu is a terrorist.”

On Sunday, Netanyahu responded to Erdogan, saying, “I am not used to receiving lectures about morality from a leader who bombs Kurdish villages in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, who helps Iran go around international sanctions, and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza, who kill innocent people. That is not the man who is going to lecture us.” (Click to Source)

Israel backs Hungary, says financier Soros is a threat


Israel’s foreign ministry has issued a statement denouncing U.S. billionaire George Soros, a move that appeared designed to align Israel more closely with Hungary ahead of a visit to Budapest next week by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Soros, a Hungarian-born Jew who has spent a large part of his fortune funding pro-democracy and human rights groups, has repeatedly been targeted by Hungary’s right-wing government, in particular over his support for more open immigration.

In the latest case, Prime Minister Viktor Orban has backed a campaign in which Soros is singled out as an enemy of the state. “Let’s not allow Soros to have the last laugh” say billboards next to a picture of the 86-year-old investor, a campaign that Jewish groups and others say foments anti-Semitism.

Soros, who rarely addresses personal attacks against him, has not commented on the billboards. But Hungarian Jewish groups and Human Rights Watch, an organization partly funded by Soros, have condemned the campaign, saying it “evokes memories of the Nazi posters during the Second World War”.

President Obama delivered his coup de grace in an act of spite against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

President Obama Throws Israel to the Wolves

Obama Is Not A Of israel!


And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.  Genesis 12:3

The United Nations Security Council voted Friday to approve a resolution demanding that “Israel immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.”  It declared that the establishment of settlements by Israel has “no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law.” The Obama administration abstained, allowing the resolution to pass. All other members of the Security Council, including the United Kingdom and France, voted for it.

President Obama delivered his coup de grace in an act of spite against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He broke with the longstanding practice of both Democratic and Republican administrations to protect Israel against such one-sided resolutions that the Palestinians will use in their campaign to delegitimize Israel.

In latest NSA spying scandal, world learns Obama lied again; Congress furious it was spied on

In January 2014, during the scandalous aftermath of Edward Snowden’s NSA snooping revelations, one which revealed the US had been spying on its closest allies for years, Obama banned U.S. eavesdropping on leaders of close friends and allies and promised he would begin reining in the vast collection of Americans’ phone data in a series of limited reforms.

Below are the key highlights from his January 17, 2014 speech:

Our capabilities help protect not only our nation, but our friends and our allies, as well.  But our efforts will only be effective if ordinary citizens in other countries have confidence that the United States respects their privacy, too.

And the leaders of our close friends and allies deserve to know that if I want to know what they think about an issue, I’ll pick up the phone and call them, rather than turning to surveillance. 

In other words, just as we balance security and privacy at home, our global leadership demands that we balance our security requirements against our need to maintain the trust and cooperation among people and leaders around the world.

The bottom line is that people around the world, regardless of their nationality, should know that the United States is not spying on ordinary people who don’t threaten our national security, and that we take their privacy concerns into account in our policies and procedures.  This applies to foreign leaders as well.

The president lied, and the privacy concerns of “people around the world” have clearlynever once been taken into account in Obama’s policies and procedures.

Just three days prior, on January 14 2014, Vermont Senator and current Democratic presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders had written an email to then NSA Chief Keith Alexander asking if the NSA has or is currently spying “on members of Congress or other American elected officials.” (Click to Article)
