A legislative initiative for the U.S. to recognize Israel’s sovereignty in the Golan Heights was introduced into Congress this week.
Lori Lowenthal Marcus’ excellent article clearly defines and substantiates why Israeli Sovereignty over the Golan Heights matters.
· Israeli control of the Golan Heights is a bulwark against Iranian and Russian efforts to dominate the Middle East
· The Golan Heights provides perfect snipers’ nest
· The Syrian civil war has dramatically expanded the roles and types of terrorist groups in the region
· Diplomatic integrity
· Practical application if the bill becomes law.
AFSI’s Spring Mission will visit the Golan and see this first-hand! Come with us!!
