Washington, DC (March 21, 2019) – Today, President Trump announced that the United States will recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights. RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks released the following statement:
The RJC applauds President Trump on this decision, one in a long series of decisions that prove he is the most pro-Israel President ever. This move serves to ensure Israel’s security, especially at a time when Iran is openly operating in Syria, right on Israel’s doorstep. That is why the RJC has worked tirelessly to advocate for US recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
Israel is one of our greatest allies, and its security is paramount to President Trump. Bold policy decisions like this are made possible by the incredible bond between President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu. Without that bond, pro-security measures like this might not be possible. Thank you, President Trump!
