Republican Lawmakers Renew Push for US Recognition of Israeli Sovereignty Over Golan Heights

Republican Congress members introduced companion bills in the Senate and House of Representatives this week calling for US recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

The legislation — filed by Senators Ted Cruz of Texas, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Rep. Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin — described Israel’s continued control of the Golan as an American “national security interest.”

“The United States has been committed for over 40 years to ensuring Israel’s security from attacks emanating from across the Golan Heights,” the lawmakers stated. “The threat Iran poses to America and Israel requires acknowledging the reality of Israel’s control over the territory as a matter of national security.”

Similar legislation was proposed toward the end of the term of the last Congress.
