RT News: “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is reportedly seeking US recognition of Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights due to the Syrian conflict. Netanyahu allegedly wanted a “different thinking” regarding the issue during talks with Barack Obama.
The possibility of the Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights in 1981 being recognized was raised during Netanyahu’s meeting with US President Obama, according to Haaretz sources close to the discussions. The publication mentioned that Netanyahu believes the absence of a functioning Syrian government “allows for different thinking” concerning the future status of the strategically important area.
President Obama did not respond to the proposal from Netanyahu.”
Opinion: Left completely out of the discussion is the October 8, 2015 news of a massive oil find in the Golan.
In the 1967 war, Israel, pre-empted an attack from Egypt, Jordan and Syria. Israel captured the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights.
All of these areas are God given natural buffers that protect the Jewish state from attack and were part of the original land grant of Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 12 – 17), and the of the Balfour Declaration of 1917.
Since that war, Israel, under pressure from the UN, EU and US, has given back all but the Golan Heights in exchange for peace that never lasted 1 day.
Golan is now the most contested piece of real estate in the world, which is a primary reason Russia, Iran, ISIS and even China are in Syria today.
The astounding part of this whole story is that the nations prophesied to take part in Biblical wars of Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39 are taking there prophesied positions.
