Recognize Golan Heights Sovereignty
EMET has launched a petition today calling on the US Administration to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
Because of the seven-year brutal Syrian civil war, the Islamic Republic of Iran has taken advantage of the situation, and Iranian-backed Hezbollah forces have penetrated as far south as the Syrian town of Quneitra. Iran is determined to build a land bridge stretching from Tehran to Beirut to Damascus and to the Mediterranean Sea.
A United States recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights is critical at this time, to ensure the safety and national security interests of the U.S. and Israel, and it would send a strong message to Tehran that their hegemonic aspirations must not go on, unchallenged.
Members of Congress have called for U.S. recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, but it is important that the American people send a message to the Administration as well.
We encourage everyone to sign and share the petition with your friends, colleagues, and contact lists.
