BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – U.S. President Donald Trump will be signing an order in the coming days to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights region, Israel’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Yisrael Katz told Reuters on Sunday.

According to Katz, Trump will be signing this order on Monday, March 25th, but he did not go into specifics.

Earlier in the week, US President Donald Trump said via Twitter that it was time for the United States to “fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and regional stability.”

Prior to Trump’s tweet, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham made a trip to Israel, where he would later visit the occupied Golan Heights with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Responding to the US move, Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul Gheit announced that the league fully supported Syrian sovereignty over the territory.

Israel seized the Golan Heights region from Syria during the Six-Day War of 1967; since then, they have maintained control over the area, despite repeated calls by the international community to withdraw.

Following the Six-Day War, the United Nations passed Resolution 242, which called on Israel to return the land to Syria; this was later followed by Resolution 497, which recognizes Syria’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Whom can Trump order but the US? UNSC resolutions clearly state the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war.

@Stern, Only a gangster would attempt such a stunt. Trump prior to being president, Trump was laundering money for the mob, Russian Jewish Gangsters, by selling them top real estate for cash. Hence as the transactions are cash, no names are tracked. If I remember correctly over 25 % of his real Estate Deals were with the mob. Most reputable business people will not take cash for properties as it is a money laundering operation for the mob. As Trump was a Dirty businessman, he is a Dirty politician. The leopard does not change its spots. A dog returns to… Read more »

He took over resorts international a Jewish mob gambling (money laundering) corporation owned by Myers lanski

His dad was a zionist front man wo brought in Ukraine Jews to the us by the boat load. It’s how we had the great crime wave in the 1920’s. Many of the mobsters were ‘jews’ like ‘Dutch shultz’ etc

I personally am thrilled with Trump’s decision. I’ve been on the Golan and very well know it’s vast stragetic importance.

@Stern Only a gangster would attempt to violate laws. No surprise as 25 percent of his real estate transactions were money laundering for the Russian Jewish Mafia.

ROFL: The whole Arab-League violates UN-Charter, Hague Convention and Geneva Convention since 1948 when it comes to Israel. The best place to launder money is probably Qatar.

Sure. Jared, Trumps’ son-in-law, was bailed out by the Qatari Government. Jared’s father went to prison for financial crimes. It was made public a couple months past. like I said this is a dirty politician and Jared is dirty too.

The Russian-Jewish mafia left Russia for a while, they mostly relocated in NYC, Miami and some to Israel. BTW, the most powerful crime family in Israel is an Arab one, the Jarushis’

Whatabout Arab mafias? Some crime families are well known! The al-Thanis’, al-Khalifas’, al-Assads’, al-Saouds’, al-Hashemis’, al-Sabahs’, al-Husseinis’ (Arafat), el-Alaouis’, bin-Zayeds’

“Sure Jan”. Currently Israel is infested with the mafia. Very corrupt which explains why Trump is gravitating in their Orbit. Truly a pit of iniquity.

Stern : so this means that Thrace/Constantinople/Hatay/N-Cyprus don’t belong to Turkey and that Gaza/West-Bank don’t belong to Arabs and Malvinas don’t belong to UK.

UNSC resolution 1701 also orders Hezbollah to disarm and the only country acting to enforce this is Israel 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

The point is UNSC Res.497 has been voted only to avoid a 3rd oil crisis. UNSC resolutions only have value if there is a political will from one of the “Big 5” to enforce ’em.

And any can veto so, these are only babbles to justify actions from the Big-5. In fact, the realty is just like nature : survival of the fittest…

If that were the case then Israel would not spend millions on bribes or blackmail UN Members. This recently came out in the Mueller investigation.

When Bashar al-Assad dies, Israel will lose Golan. Especially because he will be killed by the Israelites.

Daeshbags-Sux

ROFL. In fact, Israelis have zero interest in seeing Bashar killed. In fact, the only left wanting Bashar to go is Erdogoon. Israelis have bought the spraying containers US military finally…

…discarded for Afgha. You load such containers in a C-130, then you spray nuclear wastes to create interdiction ones. Anyone crossing, even in a HazMat, gets lethal irradiation in minutes.

The only possibility of survival ErdoGoon has for his regime is the invasion of Iran, and it’s not even sure it’d work. All other possibilities lead to balkanisation of Turkey.

Which is a long overdue since the Sèvres treaty. The good side, if he starts fücking with Israel and/or the Yankee : things will go much faster.

OK, I won’t talk about the subject since it’s highly classified here, but remember when Bibi said next time Hezbollah starts a war on Israel, Lebanon will return to the stone age?

He wasn’t joking! And so would Turkey. Sorry, same stuff when Rafal’s stealth still was classified : I didn’t discussed the subject, nevertheless, it’s obvious Israelis have “it” too 😉
