The following excerpt is from a satire by Gilad Skolnick, CAMERA’s Director of Campus Programming, and was originally published in the Times of Israel.
It is time that we heed the United Nations and J Street’s (a lobbying group based in Washington D.C.) call against Israel’s control of the Golan Heights and return this land to the historic homeland of the Syrian people, whatever that might be.
It is almost exactly 48 years since the state of Israel came into control of the Golan Heights, longer than any entity over the past 500 years other than the Ottoman Empire. But as the old mantra goes, don’t put off tomorrow what you can do today. Israel must give this land to whomever J Street and the United Nations feel deserves it, so that President Assad or ISIS can extend their creative ruling style to this land.
J Street makes no effort to differentiate the Golan from other areas it considers “Israeli settlement,” and talks against Israel’s control of this land. Meanwhile, the UN has called for Israel to cease various activity in the Golan many times over the past few years alone. Perhaps they have a point?
