President Trump has called for Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: President Trump said it’s about time for the United States and every other nation in the world to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Your thoughts?

DD: Well Jimmy it’s a tremendous pronouncement from the US President for sure and of course as he likes to do he Tweeted it out and said, “after 52 years it’s time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights which is a critical, strategic and security importance to the state of Israel and regional stability”. That couldn’t have been dictated by Prime Minister Netanyahu anymore fully than that statement. In other words it’s exactly what the Israeli’s wanted to hear.

In fact, Netanyahu Tweeted back “that at a time when Iran seeks to use Syria as a platform to destroy Israel President Trump boldly recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, thank you President Trump”. Of course it’s just the President’s announcement. It doesn’t mean that it is now become fully US policy it has to go through some more channels before that. But here we have the President of the United States making this declaration while his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in Jerusalem visiting the Western Wall, Pompeo a born again Christian doing that. 

So this is all very very meaningful to the Israeli’s Jimmy. It was intended that the Golan be part of the Jewish state when all of this was being drawn up in the early part of the last century. It’s a long story between the British and the French that had the mandates there that they decided that no this would be part of Syria. It is a critical strategic plateau as the President pointed out. If the United States were to recognize that sovereignty it would be very very meaningful. 

JD: David Dolan with the details behind President Trumps call for Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

In Biblical history God allowed Joshua to give the Golan Heights to the Jewish people that was some 3,500 years ago. It is found in Joshua 20:8. Joshua gave the Golan Heights to the half tribe of Manasseh. Political manipulations handed the Golan Heights to Syria some 60 years ago during the Six Day War in 1967 and also the Yom Kippur war in 1973 Syria lost the Golan Heights to Israel. Jews have lived in this God given land until today 52 years later. This real estate was taken in a defensive military action. President Trump’s declaration has emphasized the security aspect of the Golan Heights for the Jewish people.
