President Trump coincidental announcement that he favors Israel’s annexing of the Golan Heights has nothing to do with Israel’s election, an election he claims to have not really been aware of. I see, said the blind man.
Is it a greater gift for Bejamin Netanyahu whose facing criminal indictments and a close election, or for Vlad “No Shirt” Putin who would like some justification for annexing neighbors?
Trump’s announcement flies in the face of International Law, UN Security resolutions (which the US voted for) and common sense. No one is going to dislodge Israel’s defacto control of the area, but to suggest dejure recognition can only serve to increase tensions in a manner that is as unwise as it is unjust.
While I generally believe Trump is unaware of many international matters, his ignorance is breathtaking in its scope, the claim he doesnt know much about the pending election in Israel is a whopper of a lie…even for him.
Blatant political manipulation of serious matters for short term political gain is a dangerous thing.
