Trump signs order recognizing Golan Heights as part of Israel

President Trump, at the start of a meeting with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, signed a decree on Monday saying the US recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Israel seized the territory from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war. Coming ahead of the April 9 Israeli elections, the move is expected to give Netanyahu’s candidature a boost.

1979-Egypt makes Peace with Israel and recognizes it's right to exist. As a result it gets the Sinai back and Egypt and Israel have not gone to war since and I dont even think Israel violates Egypt's sovereignty anymore (though I could be wrong about that). 1994-Jordan makes Peace with Israel and recognizes it's right to exist. Since then Israel and Jordan have had a more positive relationship and have agreed on their mutual borders. I am relatively sure that Israel has not violated Jordan's sovereignty. 2019-After years of not making peace with Israel, Syria loses any chance of regaining the Golan Heights as over half a century has passed and the USA (and soon other countries) recognize the fact on the ground that the Golan is part of Israel. Hopefully this should serve as a wake up call to the Palestinians. Time is not on your side. The longer you wait to make peace with Israel and recognize it's right to exist (at a bare minimum) the more what you call "your land" is viewed as "Israel". In the unlikely event that any Palestinians read this, cut your losses, recognize Israel's right to exist, and watch the as aid pours in to what is left of your land so you can start building Palestine into an actual country. Also dump Hamas...that boy ain't no good for you.

Stay out of it god-emperor. We gain nothing by recognition. Israel effectively occupies land used for terrorist purposes; de jure and de facto need not occupy the same space in order for that to continue.

In any other setting liberals thoroughly shit on Syria because it is ruled by a dictator... Except when it's to take away land from Israel!

My favorite is when various Islamist factions insult each other by calling the opponents "Jews".

Every country in the world except for two at the UN Security Council condemn this move. Is the US and Israel right and the whole world wrong? Educate yourself to these events
