Netanyahu: Israel Will Name Community in Golan for Trump

Netanyahu: Israel Will Name Community in Golan for Trump

This comes after the president made the unprecedented move of recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the region in late March.

In a video posted on the Twitter account of Ofir Gendelman, spokesman for the prime minister's office, Netanyahu declared that he meant to draft a resolution calling for the creation of such settlement, "named after President Donald J. Trump", after the Passover holiday.

Soon his brand may extend to the Golan Heights.

Last month, Netanyahu traveled to the White House to meet with Trump about the decree to recognize Golan as Israeli territory.

Israel took the western two-thirds of the Golan Heights in 1967 during the Six-Day War.

A look at Sri Lanka's troubled recent history marked by war
The churches targeted included St Sebastian's in Negombo, north of the capital, which was surrounded by security forces on Monday. For many, the blasts stirred painful memories of Sri Lanka's civil war, when bomb attacks were a frequent occurrence.

An estimated 20,000 Israelis live in more than 33 Golan Heights settlements, which most of the global community considers illegal. The region is critical for Israel and the stability of the Middle East. "Given that Prime Minister Netanyahu just won another term in office, how do you plan to maintain the strong U.S. -Israel relationship despite those critiques?" asked Shelly Tsirulik, a Harvard student in the audience.

Trump broke from other world powers when he signed the presidential proclamation on March 25. "Twenty-five hundred years ago, he proclaimed that the Jewish exiles in Babylon can come back and rebuild our temple in Jerusalem".

Israel has said separately that, in appreciation of the United States president, it intends to name a proposed train station near Jerusalem's Western Wall after him.

The Golan Heights community is just one more historic way Israel will honor Trump, and it is an honor well deserved.
