DEBKAfile 16 Apr. 2016: Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu will visit Moscow on Thursday, April 21 to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin and to launch the most important battle of his political career, and one of Israel’s most decisive contests of the last 10 years: the battle over the future of the Golan Heights.
DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources and its sources in Moscow report exclusively that Israel’s top political leaders and military commanders were stunned and shocked last weekend when they found out that US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin have agreed to support the return of the Golan to Syria.
Israel will have to withdraw from the Golan at the end of that process.
The two presidents gave their top diplomats, Secretary of State John Kerry and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the green light to include such a clause in a proposal being drafted at the Geneva conference on ending the Syrian civil war.
Israel captured the Golan from the Syrian army 49 years ago, during the Six-Day War in 1967 after the Syrian army invaded Israel.
In 1981, during the tenure of then Prime Minister Menachem Begin, Israel passed a law defining the Golan as a territory under Israeli sovereignty. However, it did not state that the area belongs to Israel.
Furthermore, Washington and Moscow are trying to impose an agreement regarding the granting of independence to Syrian Kurds, despite Ankara’s adamant opposition. The two presidents are also pressuring Riyadh and Amman to accept the continuation of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s rule, at least for the immediate future.
Israel has no lobby in the Russian capital defending its interests.
It should be made very clear that the frequent trips by senior Israeli officials to Moscow have not created an Israeli policy that can influence Putin or other senior members of the Russian leadership. Putin has made occasional concessions to Israel on matters of minimal strategic importance, but on diplomatic and military steps regarding Syria and Iran he has shown little consideration of Jerusalem’s stance.
It should also be noted that there has been no basis for the enthusiasm over the Russian intervention in Syria shown by Netanyahu, Israeli ministers and senior IDF officers.
Three regional actors are very pleased by Washington and Moscow’s agreement to demand Israeli withdrawal from the Golan: Syrian President Assad, the Iranian leadership in Tehran and Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah.
Now, they do not need to risk a military confrontation with Israel over the Golan because Obama and Putin have essentially agreed to do the dirty work for them.
Times of Israel 17 April 2016: Netanyahu vows Golan Heights will remain part of Israel forever
In first cabinet meeting on territory captured from Syria in 1967, prime minister says land won’t be ceded as part of treaty to end Syrian civil war.
But apart from Golan´s strategic importance there is another cause for conflict: Rothschild´s Oil in the Golan Heights
Veterans Today 15 Oct. 2015: Israeli oil prospectors discovered a large oil deposit in the Golan Heights which could make the country self-sufficient in energy, Israeli business daily Globes reported.
Business Insider 22 Febr. 2013: Israel has granted a U.S. company the first license to explore for oil and gas in the occupied Golan Heights.
A local subsidiary of the New York-listed company Genie Energy — which is advised by former vice president Dick Cheney and whose shareholders include Jacob Rothschild (left) and Rupert Murdoch — will now have exclusive rights to a 153-square mile radius in the southern part of the Golan Heights.
Israel is moving forward with plans to drill for oil in the occupied Golan Heights, despite warnings that the move violates international law.
This is a potentially very dangerous situation. Israel will be totally isolated.
I could see this development as a step towards the fulfillment of Albert Pike / William Carr’s prediction of the Illuminati plan for the 3rd World War, which is to begin with Israel and the Arabs exterminating each other – first undisturbed by the United States and Russia. I guess that’s the meaning of the thesis of the Rothschild-State of Israel (Anno 1895 to 1957).
Right is the Rothschild temple in Jerusalem, The building of the Supreme Court.
It could also be a continuation of the under the leadership of the “King of the Jews“, i.e. Jewish Putin. Indeed, many Orthodox Jews consider the state of Israel as illegal – only the Messiah ben David is allowed to found the state.
