US Recognizing Israel’s Golan Claim is ‘Election Gift’ from Trump to Netanyahu

On Thursday, US President Donald Trump announced he would recognize Israel’s claim to sovereignty over the Golan Heights. For 52 years, no US leader has gone against United Nations resolutions regarding Israel’s occupation to be illegal. A peace activist told Sputnik Friday it was a cynical political ploy by Washington.

The declaration shocked both friends and enemies alike, as despite the close US-Israeli friendship, Washington has never challenged the United Nations' resolutions denouncing Israeli occupation of the region, which sits north of the Sea of Galilee and was taken from Syria by force in 1967. Thursday, it became the first country to recognize Israel's claim.
