I've Been Thinking:
Israel's minister of intelligence Israel Katz suggested that the US might be interested in recognizing Israeli control over the Golan Heights.
This is part of the ripple effect begun when the US recognized Jerusalem as the national capital and dedicated the United States embassy there.
The Golan Heights was captured by Israel from Syria in 1967 - and then Israeli law was applied in the area. Israel views the Golan Heights as part of Israel. Before 1967 the Golan Heights was a strategic plateau from which the Syrians launched regular attacks on Israel. The attacks were so aggressive that it was nearly impossible for Israeli farmers in the valley below to plow their fields.
There is no way Israel will ever give up the Golan Heights.
Recognizing the Golan Heights as part of Israel would further cement another fact on the ground.
