President Trump on Thursday said the U.S. will recognize Israeli control of the disputed Golan Heights territory, delivering a diplomatic win for prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of a tough reelection race.

“After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!” Trump tweeted.

The announcement came days before Trump was scheduled to meet at the White House with Netanyahu, who has urged top U.S. officials to make the move.

Goody! And Trump made this announcement on Purim, which is today, Thursday, the Jewish holiday that celebrates a big historical military victory over by armed Jewish people antisemitic oppressors. IMO Trump’s timing was deliberate. It is also a poke in the eye to Erdogan as the Golan Heights abut not just Syria but also Lebanon, both being used as pawns by Iran and surrogates like Turkey.

Been there, hiked the Golan many times. I’ve seen the Syrian gun batteries pointed
towards Israel. No question but that this small but very strategic area must remain under Israeli control.
