Israel to Name New Golan Heights Community for Trump

Sanders: Israel’s Government Is ‘Racist’

Netanyahu wrote on his official Twitter handle, "I'm here on the lovely Golan Heights".

In a press conference at the White House last month to which he invited Netanyahu, Trump signed a proclamation in which the USA officially recognized Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

"In honor of President Trump, who recognized Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, I will soon be calling for a settlement in the Golan Heights to be named after him", Netanyahu tweeted on Tuesday, April 23.

The Israeli Prime Minister is now touring the mountainous region with his family for the Jewish Passover festival.

Last month, Netanyahu traveled to the White House to meet with Trump about the decree to recognize Golan as Israeli territory.

In December 2017, Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, along with plans to move the embassy to Jerusalem. An estimated 20,000 Israelis live in Golan Heights settlements, which most of the global community considers illegal.

The area was formally annexed by Israel in 1981 in a move not recognized by the United Nations or much of the global community.

Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu display the proclamation on the Golan Heights, March 2019. Most of the Druze are Syrian citizens as Israel offered citizenship decades ago but many rejected it.

Clinton admitted that the political attitude in the Israeli electorate is certainly right wing, "there are lots of minority parties in Israel, and more of them are aligned with the settler movement or religious fundamentalism than secularism or wanting peace".

Israel captured the Golan from Syria in the 1967 Six Days War.
