The United States today officially recognized the Israeli claim of sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

President Trump on Monday formally recognized the Golan Heights as Israeli territory, giving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a much-needed boost as he raced home to respond to a rocket attack that struck near Tel Aviv, wounding seven.

Mr. Trump’s proclamation reversed about a half-century of U.S. policy, which viewed the Golan Heights as Syrian territory occupied by Israel. “This was a long time in the making, it should have taken place many decades ago,” Mr. Trump said as he signed the papers inside the White House.

The rocket attack came from Gaza, causing Netanyahu to cut short his U.S. trip to deal with it.

Remember Gaza? That was the territory that Israel once controlled, and unilaterally left in order to give the Palestinians their own sovereign state. They have since used that sovereignty to elect terrorists as their leaders, and to lob bombs at innocent Israelis.

    Its about time.

    For one it was taken during a state of war.
    For two Syria never tried to recover it. They just gave it up.

    I feel sorry for the Palestinians in some ways. They have been lied to by everyone in the region except Israel.
    They were lied to by everyone when Israel was created. And lied to ever since then. Their hatred of Israel has been stoked by a huge amount of nations and people around the world. They have been used as pawns in a war of hate.

    If they had spent as much time creating a nation state on the lands they are on instead of war they would be a prosperous people by now.
