What does it really mean that Israel has sovereignty over the Golan Heights?

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Why sovereignty over the Golan Heights? What does that really mean?

WM: Well that basically means that it takes off the table that after 50 years since the Six Days War and 70 years of statehood in which none of the Arab aggressive states have been willing to make any sort of peace to Israel. It becomes obvious that someone has to tell the Arabs you lost Israel has won. But we also want to act as normal nations do around the world and part of that is saying very sorry we gave you 50 years to make peace with us, you’re not going to make peace with us. We need their territory and that’s the final statement on the matter.

JD: Well when we talk about the Jewish communities or sometimes referred to as the settlements and what many call the West Bank and another derogatory term as I’ve mentioned you could possibly see how in the near future the area of Judaea and Samaria might also receive the approval of the United States as if they could agree and make a declaration that Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria should be the case as well. Do you think this could lead to that?

WM: It could lead to that. It could lead also that the Palestinian Authority might wake up and say wait we’re going to lose everything here if we don’t get back to negotiations. The Arabs who call themselves Palestinians look around and seen that the Syrians have lost and Egypt and Jordan has made peace already and they’re the last ones on the line. Either they come in or they lose. They want to be extremists. They don’t want to recognize Israel or the Jewish national identity. But Israel is abnormal sometimes in a very good way but it also want to be normal. In a sense that if no one wants to make peace and you’re an aggressor and you keep it up you’re going to lose a war, you’re going to lose a campaign. I think that’s a very important message actually that the Trump administration is sending to the Middle East that we’re willing to go with right and not with other types of influence that the Arabs have on the West.

JD: Winkie Medad and the explanation of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and the possibility that this could lead to Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.

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

God’s plan is that Israel will have sovereignty over all of the land of Israel of today. And then into the future as well when they will have 10 times the land that the Jews have today. Now that’s God’s promise from the Abrahamic Covenant, Genesis chapter 15, and the Land Covenant Deuteronomy chapter 30. God said this would happen not for the Jewish people but for his Holy namesake, that’s Ezekiel 36:22. When the Lord can swear by nothing greater he swore by his Holy name.
