Israel currently controls much of the territory of the area, but the governments of some countries do not recognize its sovereignty and called those lands occupied. Initially, the area was part of Syria, but in 1967 during the six day war, it took the Israeli army. Syria has disputed its sovereignty in the region, it actively supports Iran.
For a long time the US has taken a neutral stance in the Arab-Israeli issues in an effort to maintain relations with all parties to the conflict. However, in recent years relations with the Syrian regime and Iran, in fact, steadily deteriorated, and trump in the past have already done enough Pro-Israel step in the Palestinian issue, when he moved to Jerusalem the United States Embassy in Israel.
Such positive gestures by the White house Israel can not please the leadership of this country — especially considering the upcoming three weeks of the election. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, struggling now for the new term already responded with words of thanks for the tweet trump: “At a time when Iran seeks to use Syria as a platform for the destruction of Israel, President of trump boldly recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan heights” — he wrote. Trump’s words in today’s domestic situation, among other things, can be perceived as a personal support Netanyahu Washington.

Tweet trump on the Golan heights will inevitably lead to criticism of the United States from the Arab countries and the world community, but it has political value. Amid sharp debate that unfolded in the democratic party around statements Ilhan Omar, a Republican trump shows voters that he is a consistent ally of Israel.
