The Syrian government said on Monday that Washington's recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights were a “blatant attack on its sovereignty”, according to AFP.

"In a blatant attack on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria, the president of the US has recognized the annexation of the Syrian Golan," said a foreign ministry source who was quoted by the state news agency SANA.

"[US President Donald] Trump does not have the right and the legal authority to legitimize the occupation," he said.

The unnamed source also said the unlimited support the United States gives to Israel makes Washington the prime enemy of the Arabs.

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem also denounced the move, telling Syria TV that Trump's Golan move will isolate the US.

Syria's opposition chief, Nasr al-Hariri, said that Trump's decision will have negative implications on the region.

"It will lead to more violence and instability and it will have negative effects on efforts to engineer peace in the region," he was quoted as having said on Twitter.

Aside from the Biblical implications, from a purely pragmatic standpoint there are consequences when you lose a war (or several). Some people have a hard time grasping that, apparently. Since there wasn't a peace treaty, the Syrians are free to try to do whatever they like about it. Good luck with that.

Exactly. When Germany lost WW2, we divided up the spoils and it was only many decades later until they got something more or less like their original boundries back, and quite frankly, since Germany started it, we would have been justified as just declaring West Germany "Ours." We could have divided it into several parts, one of which would have either been an either an American state or an American protectorate.

Same with Japan. We would have been completely justified in declaring it "ours."

As it goes with Israel. You can't be Israel's neighbor, attack her with the intention of her complete and total destruction, and then expect us to care too much when you complain when they kick your you-know-what and then decide to keep the land obtained in response to YOUR attack.

No, it won’t.

History has proven over and over again, that giving land to terrorists,
makes them think Israel is weak, and it leads to more hostility and violence.

So let’s try this for a change. Show them Israel and America are strong.
Let the dogs bark or bite, and answer their hostility with even more determination.

I guess he conveniently forgot that the UN GAVE the GOLAN to ISRAEL in 1948, but SYRIA invaded and took it away. All Israel has done is reclaim their land which they own by several ways of reckoning not the least of which is that this is their ancient territory and was deeded to them by the UN in 1948.

Most of these so-called disputes could be solved with a quick walk down HISTORY lane.
