Arab League: Trump's recognition of Golan Heights as Israeli doesn't change its status | Reuters
Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit condemned U.S. President Donald Trump’s recognition of the Golan Heights as Israeli territory, saying on Monday the decision does not change the area’s status, according to a statement published by Egypt’s state news agency MENA.
Do you agree or disagree with the decision?
Opinion | Trump’s Golan Decision Is Moral and Strategic
President Trump’s tweeted last week that the U.S. will formally recognize the Golan Heights as part of Israel. The decision is strategically wise and morally important.
Indeed it is strategically wise. Now I know who will be elected as US preisdent in 2020.

I think calling Trump a puppet is a bit off. A puppet moves in a co-ordinated manner, Trump just waves his extremities at random. At least the Jews in the US must feel a bit happier that he'll not set the Klan on them [yet].

The whole Israeli / Arab interface makes "The Troubles" look like a spat between two small children over a football.

Making unilateral big statements like Trump has done will simply generate even more bad feeling.

The Arabs and Jews have been at each others' throats for as long as I can remember, I expect they will still be at it when I leave this mortal coil, and even when my children pass on.

Trump has, as usual, stuck his size 10s into a situation he has negligible understanding of.

Remember - from KGB_resident's perspective, when Russia annexes something it gained in war it's Right and Proper. When Israel annexes territory it gained in war it's different because reasons.

I do like Reuter’s, especially after you had a hissy fIt when they quoted Bellingcat on MH17 :) Thank you

E2A: Israel offers the Golan Heights to Syria
If only Assad has accepted the 2007 offer......
As ever the devil is in the details
The Israeli prime minister has offered to return the Golan Heights to Syria in exchange for peace, the nation's press reported yesterday.
In a secret communique, Ehud Olmert demanded that in exchange for the return of the strategic highlands, Syria dissolve its alliances with Iran, Hezbollah and Palestinian militant factions who maintain headquarters in Damascus.
Secret proposition of peace? It is absurd.

It's funny. You explain my point of view while don't explain your own one.
I believe that a referendum in Golan Hights is needed where local population (excluding Jewish settlers) could express its will. Do you agree with it?

Surely sending Blair as a Middle East peace envoy was far worse than anything Trump could do

Good idea.
You will of course also agree that referendums in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine are good idea too, won’t you?

Cease supporting 2 terrorist organisations seems more than reasonable in exchange for the Golan heights

As for the Iran alliance - sensible people would have perhaps negotiated on that point - perhaps a mutual defence pact between Iran Syria could be acceptable with a few concessions either side

Colour me unsurprised however that Russia doesn't want to set a precedent where its in favour of ceasing support of terrorist groups

Trump's Golan move boosts Netanyahu but long-term risks for Israel | Reuters
“Donald Trump has made sure that Israel will be in a perpetual state of war with its Arab neighbors for many decades to come,” said Fawaz Gerges, professor of international relations at the London School of Economics and author of the book Making the Arab World.

“What Trump has done is to hammer a deadly nail in the coffin of the peace process and Arab-Israeli reconciliation. This is a fundamental turning point. There is nothing left to discuss anymore.”
Frankly speaking, the professor is absolutely right.

It was not the only condition.
Golan Heights - Wikipedia
In June 2007, it was reported that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert had sent a secret message to Syrian President Bashar Assad saying that Israel would concede the land in exchange for a comprehensive peace agreement and the severing of Syria's ties with Iran and militant groups in the region.[120] On the same day, former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that the former Syrian President, Hafez Assad, had promised to let Israel retain Mount Hermon in any future agreement.
But had he promised it? Highly likely no.
There were apparently unacceptanle preconditions. So the proposition was not serious. Israel just played time and the decision about unconditional and irreversable annexation had been done long ago.

What real difference does it make if the Ärsewipe-in-Chief Trump "recognises" the Israeli annexation? It doesn't make it any more legal does it? Of course, "Bibi" is thrilled, like: "I got the big boy to agree with me". It's another tiresome example of the kindergarten politics we know so well.

Possession is 9/10 of the law. The rest of the world will follow along and get on the same page.
