    Trump recognizes the high-ground reality in the Golan Heights

    Sometimes issues just need to be settled once and for all and be done with it rather than to have it continue and fester for more decades to come.

    It may not be popular with everyone but facts are facts.
    Israel won. Syria lost. War works that way. That's how lines and territories are and have been drawn throughout history. It seems Trump is trying to put an end to this contention once and for all in light of the obvious. At least as far as the official US position goes.

    Unilateral decision.
    No festering for decades?
    Color me skeptical.

    52 years so far, but yeah I suppose festering will continue regardless.

    By sucking up to the Jews TrumpHitler is just pandering to his infinitesimally small voter base of far- right White supremacists so he can win in 2020.

    Seems that would put the entirety of Israel in that category given the popularity of Trump over there.

    For an "anti-semite" it's surprising that he's so popular over there.

    He's threatening war with Iran.
    That's likely to make him popular in certain circles.

    I know that you like to think that the people who hammered out a peace agreement with Iran were more likely to start a war than the guy who promised to restart conflict with Iran.
    But it's kind of a stupid thing to believe, if you ask me.

    Yeah, what can you do? Everyone knows Israel won't give up the Golan heights because if Syria gets the heights they have a huge strategic advantage to attack Israel --from the Golan heights-- and do a lot of damage. So, by people pushing Israel to give back the Golan heights; they're basically pushing someone who already has their back against the wall and no where left to go.

    So although I sympathize with Syria a bit; I have to say the right decision is to allow Israel to stay.

    Only 4 posts in, already a Godwin.

    Still, it is good to be assured that there are so few of them
    far right white supremacists.

    It would be suicide for Israel to give up the Golan Heights.

    Colonizing occupied land is against the law.

    You know the Israelis destroyed over 65 Druze villages in 1967 after Syria was no longer a threat.

    The Druze are descended from Jethro of Midian, the priest and father of Mose's wife Zipporah.

    They are descendants of Midian, one of Abraham’s sons by Keturah ( Genesis 25:1-4 ).
