Sen. Graham pledges to work for Golan recognition as part of Israel

“To give this territory up would be a strategic nightmare for Israel. And who would you give it to?” said US Sen. Lindsey Graham Monday on a visit to the Golan with PM Binyamin Netanyahu. He promised to work with Senator Cruz on a move to recognize the Golan as part of Israel “now and forever.” It was taken by military force “ because it served as a launching pad to attack Israel. There is rich Jewish history in this region,” said Sen. Graham. He went on to say: “I can’t tell you how much intelligence has been given us from our friends in Israel to protect the American homeland… so its security is relevant to American national security.”

The prime minister hailed “this concrete step to preserve the Golan as part of Israel, otherwise our border will be with Iran on the rim of the Sea of Galilee – and we can’t accept that.”

    The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

    “I will make you into a great nation,
    and I will bless you;
    I will make your name great,
    and you will be a blessing.
    I will bless those who bless you,
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
    and all peoples on earth
    will be blessed through you.”

    Genesis 12:1-3 NIV

    I completely agree: Golan and the West bank of the Jordan river are Israel lands.
    Americans are highly intelligent and fine observers people, you know?
