In what critics denounced as an obscene celebration of land theft and a violation of international law, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday showed his appreciation for U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize the occupied Golan Heights as Israeli territory by unveiling a new illegal settlement named “Trump Heights.”

As Common Dreams reported, Trump’s recognition of the occupied Syrian territory as Israeli property in March was widely condemned by international observers.

“This is a historic day,” Netanyahu said after dramatically uncovering the “Trump Heights” entry sign, emblazoned with large gold letters.

As Haaretz reported, no new community was actually established in the occupied Syrian territory on Sunday, as the move must be approved and finalized by the government.

“There isn’t really any settlement there yet, just a sign, just as there isn’t any reality to Trump more generally, just an empty suit,” historian and Middle East expert Juan Cole wrote in a blog post on Monday.

“Given that Trump is a narcissistic fraud, it is appropriate that his name be attached to the illegal Israeli theft of Syrian territory. In fact, we should just call the Occupied Palestinian Territories in general Trumpland, a fraud and form of robbery like his ‘university’ and ‘steaks’ and ‘airline,’” Cole wrote. “Trump Heights is such a great name for the colony built on theft, since Trump’s whole life has been about being wealthy and powerful enough to escape the consequences of his crimes.”

Others expressed similar disgust at Netanyahu’s announcement, which was quickly hailed by Trump as a “great honor.”

“Blatant theft: with no legal jurisdiction whatsoever and in flagrant violation of international law, Israel re-names part of Syria after Trump,” tweeted activist Sarah Wilkinson.

  1. While I realize that Netanyahu stole the land and called it TH, there is no reason to slander Trump. He did not name it, He did not steal it. BN did. Very negative article that just creates more separation. PFC, please stop these negative articles. My company won’t donate anymore because this is a divisional atttitude.

    • Telling facts is not name bashing. The fact is that Netanyahu was able to steal the land because Trump practically “gifted” the illegally occupied Syrian territory of the Golan Heights to Israel by “officially” recognizing it as part of that rough state. Trump did that, not Nikki Haley, Bolton or Pompeo. He had no business doing that. How would you like China decreeing California as part of Mexico? would you be perfectly Ok wit that? He supposed to be making America great again & not Israel. Now the whole middle East hate us even more. I Support Trump but I am also pointing his mistakes. Being a patriot is not following blindly an individual but keeping the rulers on check for the good of our land and neighbors.
