Washington, D.C. | www.adc.org | March 25, 2019 –  The unprecedented decision by the Trump Administration to formally recognize Israel’s unjust claim to the occupied Syrian Golan Heights is troubling, deeply concerning, and goes against international law.  President Trump declared via twitter on March 21, 2019, that this policy shift, “is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!” This irresponsible and unilateral decision contradicts thirty years of established U.S. policy.

To date, no country recognizes Israel’s claim over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.  In 1967, Israel acquired the Syrian Golan Heights by force, and fully annexing the territory in 1981.  United Nations (UN) resolutions 242 (1967), 338 (1973), 497 (1981), and 2334 (2016), all demand that Israel withdraws from the Palestinian and Arab territories that it annexed during the 1967 war, including the Syrian Golan Heights. U.N. Security Council Resolution 497 (1981), explicitly states, Israel’s acquisition of the occupied Syrian Golan Heights by force is, “inadmissible under international law and the decision to impose its laws in the territory is null and void.

Israel has continuously violated international law by illegally building settlements and exploiting natural resources throughout the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.  Notably, the occupied Syrian Golan Heights provides Israel with one-third of its fresh water. In 2015, the Economic Times reported that the Israeli oil company, Afek, is leading programs to illegally drill for oil in the occupied Syrian territory. Additionally, Israel has built 167 illegal business and at least 34 illegal settlements, with approximately 2,000 illegal settlers living in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights. It is negligent of the Trump administration to turn a blind eye to these repeated violations and abandoned the U.S.’s long-held policy that the Syrian Golan Heights is occupied.

As the Trump administration continues to implement policies violating fundamental human rights, ADC reiterates the position of this being an outrageous violation of international law. It is the obligation of the U.S. Congress and the Trump Administration, as well as the United Nations and the international community to uphold its own international agreements and fundamental principles of human rights that it claims to promote in its foreign policies.

  1. Zionist Christians are not Of the family Of Christ Jesus, the are Christians in judiacs clothing… They Jews of the Talmud not the bible old testament Moses order… Jesus scorned the Pharisees and their Babylonian magic and superstition and Zionist are not of the New testament order of Christianity, but the Churchianity of Imperialistic Rome and secular deviants, believing themselves to be Christian… Yet what most Christians do not understand is that the Talmudic Rabbis see all Christians as idolaters meant to rot in hell or be killed like the Bolshevik Jews did in Russia during the Russian Bolshevik revolution… you cannot trust the Talmudic Jews with your life if you don’t serve them… Donald Trump!
    Time to study for Christians that are blinded by Zionist evangelicals that do not know their history o earthly Talmudic Nemesis’s…the Rabbis that hate all things Christian and Goyim at large. A good book to read would be…”Michael Hoffman’s” “Judaism Discovered” … It will cost ya, because the ADL pressured Bezos to ban and censor it from the Amazon line up of anything regarded as anti-Semitic… The age od censorship and the discovery of truth covers the crimes of the elite controllers of man slaves in our century… History repeats itself over and over again… To know who controls you? Will be those that censor and keep us from making our own minds up about what we read.

  2. Once again breathern :
    please realize Jews/Israelis are God’s chosen people & can do ANYTHING they like.

    150,000 Syrians living in the Golan have been “Ethnically” cleansed without a word .
    Palestinians imprisoned in Gaza are being shot at like fish in a barrel.

    So rejoice its all planned out in God’s words laid out in the Judeo/Cristian “Scriptures”—Hallegulia.

  3. The dark wizard kings of Mustalainen Mordor must be glad to see that those fifty of their lost tribe colonies that have set a world record in treaty-braking and are now negating international law have said it is “Right” for them to sit on their dark thrown trones in and around thei hills and hamlets in Rehavia in the western hemisphere of Al-Quds-al-Sharif to overlord the Golan from below so as to insure that Gollum can eat his Saint Peter’s fishiis undistrubed at the shores of lake Genessereth — until the oils of fury start to rain down from the heights.

  4. This is another issue the Military Tribunal should handle and to make it SURE that ALL of the ZIONISTS are taken into custody, found guilty and similar fate, public hanging.
