Congress Wants Recognition of Israeli Sovereignty over Golan Heights


Congress is renewing efforts to press the Trump administration into recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights on Israel’s northern border with Syria, the Washington Free Beacon reports.

The House’s National Security Subcommittee will hold a hearing Tuesday to examine how recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the territory could bolster U.S. national security efforts to stem the flow of terrorists.

Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) said: “U.S. recognition of the Golan Heights is overdue….As we’ve seen with the successful relocation of our American embassy to Jerusalem, when the U.S. leads with purpose and conviction, good things happen.”
