ISRAEL: Trump signs “nice” on the map representing Golan Heights as part of Israel and Netanyahu cannot stop showing it off.
During Thursday’s Televised Interview Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu showed off the new State of Department Map.
Netanyahu couldn’t stop boasting that the map was autographed by President Donald Trump and he had also marked the Golan Heights as part of Israel.
The map had written “nice” on it with an arrow pointing towards the Golan Height.

PM Netanyahu has had his worst day in politics, but to make him feel better Jared Kushner hand delivered new US map showing annexed Golan Heights as part of Israel. Trump wrote “Nice”:
Trump Signs Nice on Map Representing Golan As Part of Israel
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday
The son-in-law and senior adviser of President Donald Trump had brought him a gift.
He said Jared Kushner had gifted an updated State Department map, incorporating Golan Heights as part of Israel.
Israel captured Golan Heights from Syria in 1967 in a six day war. It was annexed in 1981.
In March Donald Trump recognized Golan Heights as part of Israel.
International consensus regards Golan as territory of Syria. The decision has put the US in an odd position as it reversing the fifty year old American policy.
Last month Netanyahu had also said his new government will name a town in Golan Territory after Trump.
This move is being seen as a bid to help the premiere get out of his political chaos and help him win the election.
Trump signed a proclamation on 25 March when Netanyahu visited the White House.
Trumps support for Netanyahu reflects in his tweet which said
Hoping things will work out with Israel’s coalition formation and Bibi and I can continue to make the alliance between America and Israel stronger than ever. A lot more to do!
