Think the United States Congress works for the American people? If so, you are mistaken. Congress is an institution that is bought and paid for by Jews and Israel. This story is just another example proving so.
Congress is set to consider a new measure to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the contested Golan Heights region that separates Israel from Syria, a key piece of territory that has become all the more important since the civil war in Syria brought scores of jihadist fighters, including those backed by Iran, into the region.
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, introduced on Thursday a resolution that could lead to an historic recognition by the United States that the contested area fully belongs to Israel, according to a copy of the amendment obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Israel annexed the Golan Heights in 1981 following the Six Day War with Arab nations in the region. The United States has declined for decades to take a position on the status of this territory, but following President Donald Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, DeSantis and others see an opportunity for the United States to recognize another territorial reality—that the Golan Heights will not be given back to Syria, particularly in light of the strife gripping the country.
Congress will no doubt approve this legislation in a bi-partisan fashion. The one thing that both parties can always agree on is voting in favor of legislation that supports Israel. When it comes to securing America’s national borders or doing common sense things for the American people, we are always told of a million reasons why those things can’t happen.
The Golan Heights is stolen territory. It has never been recognized as Israeli land. It’s patently ridiculous to recognize it as part of Israel.
But whatever, if there’s any positive to this it is that it will only further escalate the anger of the Moslem world against Israel.
