BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 P.M.) – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is a big fan of President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

According to the Reuters News Agency, Pompeo claimed that the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights w3ould help resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by removing uncertainty.

“We believe this increases the likelihood that we get resolution of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians,” Pompeo told a congressional hearing.

“We think it speaks with the clarity that takes this away from any uncertainty about how we’ll proceed,” he added.

Trump’s decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights comes just weeks before the new Israeli elections.

The recognition of the Golan Heights as Israeli territory is considered a major victory for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is facing charges related to corruption.

Syria, along with the Arab League and several other nations, has condemned the U.S. decision, which goes against U.N. resolutions 242 and 497.

Israel captured the Golan Heights and Sinai Peninsula (Egypt) during the Six-Day War of 1967; however, they would later hand back the Sinai Peninsula following the first Camp David Accords in 1978 that was held between Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.

The current US government led by the clown Trump would have to be the most pro-Israeli which suggests that Trump is motivated by money without any morals. Pompeo is a corrupt maggot who also is brainwashed by Satanyahu & his cousins in Washington.

Pretty much exactly what the extreme right coalition and its infamous ultra religious and militaristic component has been doing for close to a decade now, right on buddy. Bibi has been practicing good ‘ol Goebbels recipe book big time for quite some time now ! Saturate the media and diplomatic space with the “threat of radical islamismofascism” while you starve an entire people, kidnap and imprison its children arbitrarily, snipe them while boasting of your all-round greatness on camera (special 2019 edition of the Tsahal playbook, a must-see), harass them, expropriate them and their families of more of their homes… Read more »

@Daeshbags-Sux, No Goebbels did not come first, it was President Wilson who created the Committee on Public Information. The Fascist Goebbels only refined it. Now all Western media are forced into line by financial cartels controlled by US Semmites and the Gulf Arabs who hold most MSM. The Joseph Goebbels principle globalized by the US economic influence. While internet trolls are their little George Creels and point at Goebbels. 😛

What has occupying Syrian soil have to do with the Palestinian problem?

Except that Israel is involved in both.

As I already said earlier, I think so too. Everything that makes the world understand that there is no peace with Israel, since Israel, being in its essence a cancerous destructive entity, cannot but behave criminally and destructively — all such developments will help solve the Palestine conflict. The only solution is the dissolution of this ulcer.

Nope, it’s trashing the Palestinian Goebbelsian “Big Lie”.

This is the greatest crime against humanity ever, the ideology is even worst than Nazism. Since 1948, IDF not even killed 1% of Mid-East wars fatalities.

And I rule out all cases where the west intervened! Arafat’s PLO alone is responsible of at least 2-3 times more deaths than Tsahal, mostly in

Lebanon (150-180k) and Jordan (23-27k) while IDF killed only 75-85k, near all the time while being under attack by Arab nations.

1st, your numbers are a joke, and the funniest is that you know it perfectly, still a clumsy propagandist without the ability or dignity to at least gets its facts and figure right. 2nd, Tsahal pretty much controlled, equipped and directed every single Arab militia that was aligned against the PLO, and that trend reached its peak during the infamous Sabra and Chatila massacre that the whole world knows very well about to this day, a massive stain on the history of mankind in the late XXth century that lies 90% in Israeli blood-soaked hands. Organized, supported, and perpetrated in… Read more »

Let’s even assume this for a second, for the sole sake of argument. In what way does a big mass murder justify another, smaller, mass murder ? You get everything so catastrophically wrong, I swear I have never seen someone with such a twisted mindset, Talmudic evening classes really had a toll on your brain man…

Islam and Zionism can both kiss my back as far as i’m concerned, they’ve brought mass killing upon the region in tandem ever since they had the power to do so. The one , single biggest lie, the 360° phallacy of a historical claim in the XXth century is the one that gives Eretz Israel to jews by right and blood in 2019 while trying to replace the order of Nations (otherwise called the UN) and the global charter of Human Rights with verses of the Thora my friend, nothing else is false.

I did notice seeing a lot more pro-Zio stuff on here lately. But I don’t want to get conspirational. Anyway what did I say? Israel must be destroyed. Is this not allowed to be said anymore on this page?

Maybe is Pompeo right. The best thing to do is to recognise Oslo-II for what it was : a deception as Arafat himself compared it to the shameful Hudaibiyyah treaty which was also a deception.

@Daeshbags-Sux, You Entente twits should not have colonized the Middle East countries that were Your allies in WW I. Confer Lawrence of Arabia. And You should not have sold Palestine to the Zionists who financed Your irredentist claims to the Reichsland Elsaß-Lothringen. French irredentism and colonialism was the Highway to two World Wars and countless wars in the Middle East. And Wilsön’s 14 points were not good US intentions but a war ruse.
