Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked US President Donald Trump for his decision to recognise Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, during a joint press conference with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Jerusalem on Thursday.

“President Trump has just made history,” said Netanyahu.

“And he did so at a time when Iran is trying to use Syria as a platform to attack and destroy Israel, and the message that President Trump has given the world is that America stands by Israel,” he added.

In return, Pompeo stressed that the people of Israel “should know that the battles they fought, the lives that they lost on that very ground, were worthy, meaningful and important for all time.”

A couple of hours earlier, Trump posted an unexpected statement on Twitter, saying that the US would recognise Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, a territory captured from Syria in 1967.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
