Roger Simon is arguing that with the U.S. disengaging from Syria where a dictator reigns and Iran and Russia remain on the ground, now is the time for the U.S. to officially recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. He writes: “Given the behavior of Syria’s horrendous dictator Bashar Assad…the Israelis would have to be completely insane to give up the Golan.” And he’s right. The more strategically secure Israel is against a totalitarian regime – backed by Iran – the easier it will be for the U.S. to continue backing them. What’s in Israel’s best interest is also in ours. Let’s get to it!

Now that Donald Trump has signaled the departure of U.S. troops from Syria–to the consternation of many who were urging him to do it in the first place, no surprise–it’s a perfect moment to ease some worries and do something overdue literally for decades: officially recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
Given the behavior of Syria’s horrendous dictator Bashar Assad–gassing women and children while destroying nearly his entire nation to “save” it and creating a refugee crisis that is turning Europe into the ghost of itself, not to mention allying with the homicidal terrorist maniacs in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah and, of course, Russia–the Israelis would have to be completely insane to give up the Golan.
Not even a nuclear bomb on Tel Aviv would get them to leave so Syria can once again rain artillery over northern Israel as they did for decades. Everybody knows that, but few in this country or Europe want to say it out loud.
