It's a theocracy like Vatican City State, but of course much larger, and with nuclear weapons.

No, it's not. It is a democracy with an independent judiciary. But have for a long time struggled with their own trumpism and growing clout for religious zealots. The whole area is "it's complicated".

That is of huge consequence. The history of jerusalem is the history of christian powers competing for control and ability to proclaim themselves "protector of the faith". Christian rightwingers pining for the armageddon are a prime influence now.

The history/issue of christian powers competing for control is hugely consequential. The USA evangelical connection pushing for end times is of no consequence.

So far, only the US endorses Israeli annexation of the Golan Heights:

ok....to be accurate, you have named your dots. Now connect them...........to any subject, theme, statement, attitude, belief you think these dots are related to. Otherwise, you are just throwing random {!#%@} on the wall with no revealed thinking behind them. Lets take a quick look:

Dot One: Golan Heights: is this pro or anti Israel, USA, rest of the world, Palestine etc?

Dot Two: Yemen: same thing.

..........so what?

Any idiot, as you demonstrate, can post to links. .......................... But what is their import to anything that matters? Pro or Con???

Netanyahu rules out Palestinian state.

Sadly, the OP was right on target, and if you find this surprising, either you are not a skeptic, or you haven't been paying attention:

Complimenting yourself on your own OP?........Well done, deserved...being correct has that attribute. Its been years since I heard it last but "The Single State Solution" has been in the News. Trump is shaking things up/encouraging the Lakudnicks. Could Jerrod actually be accomplishing anything in the background or just encouraging Netanyahu with his useful idiocy?

Looks like Israel is going the way of all Nations. Hooman affairs don't change much................

Netanyahu offered the Golan Heights to Syria in secret negotiations, and lost his re-election because of it, with his defense minister running against him.
