bibi should shut up about needing usa acceptance of Israeli sovereignty of the golan. Israel owns the golan period and needs no one to approve it.anyone even thinking to offer the Golan up is a damn fool and weakling.

i call on the idf to release bibi's personal war record. people i believe will be own prediction is that it may show that he himself was not instrumental in taking down Israel's enemies.

"The Golan Heights is the area captured from Syria and occupied by Israel during the Six-Day War..." NO! Your father Benzion, the historian, PM Netanyahu, would turning over in his grave reading above sentence! The Golan Heights NEVER were part of Syrian real estate! The Golan Heights were part of the Mandate for Palestine, the territory reserved by the League of Nations for the Jewish people to create their own independent state! The British Mandatory ceded in 1923 in the most treacherous way the Golan Heights to France, Mandatory of Syria, in compensation for having accepted to move the border between Syria and Iraq, in a way that Mosul and its oil fields became part of Iraq under British mandate. It was in total breach with Article V of the Mandate, and I quote: "The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of any foreign power". Unquote. From a "Special Report Prepared for the U.S. Center for Security Policy" I quote following excerpts: "A Mandate is a Trust, according to ART. 80 of the UN Charter. Israel's decision to impose its Laws on the Golan Heights on December 14, 1981, had eventually RIGHTED the WRONG that was committed by the British in March 1923. Syria cannot make a standing claim in an International Court of Law as Syria was not an Independent Country then, but was in its formative years under the French Mandate. The "Golan Heights" as they are know TODAY were never part of Syrian Real Estate, but part of the Palestine Mandate". Is it clear PM Netanyahu?

Jews will invade over and over, until Jews go extinct, soon I hope, like the Nazis.
