Israel’s foreign minister says that President Trump is expected to sign an Executive Order to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is a strategic military area and also provides one-third of Israel’s fresh water. It also is rich in oil. Genie Energy, which is dominated by US neocons and globalists, including Dick Cheney and Nathaniel Rothschild, has acquired the oil rights for this region. Global backlash against Trumps decision is expected. -GEG

Summary by JW Williams

Last week, President Trump tweeted that it was time for the US to “fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and regional stability.”

Israel seized the Golan Heights region from Syria during the Six-Day War of 1967, in spite of calls by the international community to withdraw, and UN resolution recognizing Syria’s sovereignty over the area. Israel expelled 130,000 Syrians from the Golan Heights in 1967.
The Golan provides over a third of Israel’s fresh water.
Afek Oil and Gas, a division of Genie Oil, has obtained oil rights for the oil fields in the Golan Heights. Genie Oil board members include banking family scion Nathaniel Rothschild, former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Congresswoman Mary Landrieu, former CIA chief James Woolsey, former Treasury Secretary and financial advisor to Obama, Larry Summers, billionaire hedge-fund manager Michael Steinhardt, and co-chairman of Fox Corporation Keith Rupert Murdoch. Mr Trump’s adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has family investments in Genie.

According to Redress Online, Genie’s Israeli subsidiary cannot sell any oil it extracts from the Golan on the international oil market because that would violate UN resolutions. However, if Washington declares the Golan to be part of Israel, then oil could be legally traded with the US and those with a financial stake in Golan oil will greatly prosper.
