Israel to Double Population of Golan
By Micah Halpern

Wednesday December 29, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Israelís Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced that the Israeli government is planning to double the number of people who live in the Golan Heights.
The government will invest $300 million to lure and entice Israelis to move north.

About 50,000 people now live in the Golan Heights. That population is divided almost evenly between Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs, especially Druze.
Israel captured the Golan Heights from the Syrians during the 1967 Six Day War.
In 1981, Israel annexed the Golan. And on March 25, 2019, under the administration of then-President Donald Trump, the United States recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel. Most other countries in the world do not recognize that decision.

The Golan Heights is filled with Jewish history. The decision to move more Israelis into the Golan is a strategy to make certain that Israel will not be forced to evacuate the area.

From atop the Golan the entire valley below is in the cross hairs of anyone sitting on the Heights. Keeping the Golan is a security necessity for Israel.
