Netanyahu: "Israel on the Golan Heights Is a Solid Reality Based on Ancient Rights"

(Prime Minister's Office) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke Monday at the dedication of a restored 1,500-year-old synagogue at the Ein Keshatot archaeological site in the Golan Heights. "Today we see what is happening over the border [in Syria] - Iran's attempts to establish a military presence and the aggression of terrorist fanatics." "Israel on the Golan Heights is a guarantee for stability in the surrounding area. Israel on the Golan Heights is a solid reality based on ancient rights." "Israel on the Golan Heights is a fact that the international community must recognize, and as long as it depends on me, the Golan Heights will always remain under Israeli sovereignty because otherwise we would have Iran and Hizbullah on the shores of the Kinneret." "We will continue to act with determination against Iran's attempts to open an additional front against us on the Golan Heights, and in Syria we will act against all attempts to transfer lethal weapons to Hizbullah in Lebanon. I will discuss these matters with President Putin when I meet with him soon." "I know that President Putin understands my commitment to the security of Israel and I know that he also understands the importance...that we all ascribe to the Golan Heights and to the heritage of Israel."
