"U.S. Gave Jerusalem to Israel, Will Syria's Golan Heights Be Next?"

Yah, that's actually  the Newsweek headline

Talked about this a few days ago.

Congressman urges US to recognize Syria’s Golan as Israeli territory
"Israel has been pressuring the U.S. to recognize its self-proclaimed ownership of the Golan Heights, a southwestern Syrian territory seized by Israel during a 1967 conflict and later annexed without international recognition.

Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz made the revelation in an interview with Reuters on Wednesday, saying such a follow-up to Washington's recognition of the disputed city of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel would likely come within the upcoming months. Katz said accepting Israeli control of the Golan Heights would target not only longtime foe Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but also an even more powerful enemy: Iran.

Israel has targeted Iranian and pro-Iran positions in Syria for years and Katz said President Donald Trump's recent decision to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and exit from the 2015 nuclear agreement meant it was "the perfect time" to escalate the administration's anti-Iran campaign.

"The most painful response you can give the Iranians is to recognize Israel’s Golan sovereignty—with an American statement, a presidential proclamation, enshrined [in law]," he told Reuters. "You want to destroy [U.S. ally Israel], to generate attacks [against it]? Look, you got exactly the opposite."

  1. If the US gives the Golan Heights to Syria...contrary to numerous United Nations Resolutions...then that will be the end of the United Nations...at least as it currently exists in NYC.

    1. It looks to me as if the US and Israel are singing in unison regarding Golan....

      There are american congressmen pushing for it and Israel is pushing for it too... So both nations are on the same page
