Having a more sovereign and representative government than in Europe, It’s in Israel’s best interests to see that the post-Christian West doesn’t fall completely…
Israel will protect Europe, even if Europe doesn’t deserve it
Europe knows full well that the Golan Heights are a barrier to Islamic jihad and that Israel is keeping Iran at bay there.
After moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, Donald Trump recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Whoever has been there, or has chewed up a bit of history, knows that Israel can never leave the area.
Moshav Neveh Ativ in the upper Golan remembers why with the plates of the fallen soldiers. The Israelis advanced to 30 kilometers from Damascus. In less than three hours they could have reached it, the Syrian capital.
The Golan is a steep climb starting close to the eastern shore of the Kinneret, the Sea of Gallee.. Syrian batteries dominated the easternmost range of the Galilee up on the Golan Heights and there was no kibbutz that did not feel the mortal threat. Children slept in shelters every night until the 1967 war when Israel responded to Syria’s attack by conquering the heights.
Giving away the Golan would mean having the Iranians or the Islamists facing the lake of Galilee a day later. And beyond it, all of Israel.
Does America now commendably recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights? The European Union has just done the opposite. “We do not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan”, reads the joint EU statement. From those heights, Israel will continue to defend the free world from radical Islam even if Europe does not deserve it.
