As if Israel does not have more than enough issues in the changing landscape of which border to defend on a daily basis, at while the 45th American Administrative Chief Executive provided unwavering support of the Golan, a certain sense of control existed. Now, in apparent deference to a potential nod of international conciliation (not too surprising when considering the democratic nominee's position on Syria during the campaign and former Russian influences during the 44th American Administrative Chief Executive's forcing a fallback in the face of the Syrian civil war), the current American administration has issues with permanent Israeli sovereignty in the Golan while the 46th American Administrative Chief Executive has its Secretary Blinken wavering at the premise of such thoughts.
