UN Security Council and EU Condemn Recognition of Israeli Sovereignty of Golan: Part II

March 29, 2019

Episode Notes:

The U.N. Security Council - not including the U.S. - and all EU members have condemned the U.S. Presidential Proclamation to recognize Israeli sovereignty of the Golan Heights. Presuming the U.S. Congress follows suit, what are the geopolitical consequences of U.S. recognition? This is the second part of a two-part coverage of the event.
