GIVING ISRAEL THE GOLAN HEIGHTS IS THE PRICE PAID BY ASSAD TO STAY IN POWER

Trump’s decision not only preserves the status quo and legitimises Israel’s occupation, but is also tantamount to declaring war on international norms, represented by the UN and international law. At a stroke he has imposed the law of the jungle on the Middle East and its people.

Whether the Golan Heights was sold for money or a guarantee of the presidency for Hafez Al-Assad, or both, is not really the issue. Either way, the betrayal is clear. The result was Israel’s occupation of the Golan Heights and Hafez Al-Assad becoming president after his military coup against President Nureddin Al-Atassi in 1971.

The question now being asked is whether the Syrian son has followed in his father’s footsteps; did the murderous criminal Bashar Al-Assad relinquish the Golan Heights as part of a deal stay on as Syria’s President? Recent leaks in the press speak of secret Israeli negotiations with him to give up the Golan Heights in exchange for staying in power. I believe that this is a very likely scenario, and that it is this which encouraged Trump to make his sudden announcement about recognising Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an interesting observation; but the real question, and the true "power behind the throne" behind Syria, is Russia.

And I have to ask; will Russia allow this to remain a stable situation?!? My sense is that President Putin is, by both nature and intelligence, a cautious man, and will simply allow this to continue. But if there are any more "nicks and scrapes" against the sovereignty of Syria in other parts of the country, by either Israel and/or the US (which still has troops in Syria, BTW) Putin may "turn loose", militarily, on both entities.

I would like to hope (and pray) that such a scenario will not happen; this country's military doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money, or the manufacturing, to insure a positive outcome to a war against Russia in Syria (or anywhere else).
