"Hauser claims that Syria's collapse as a state should push Israel to devise a new strategy vis-à-vis the Golan Heights, and not make do with tactical military steps such as preventing arms transfers from Syria to Lebanon.
Hauser wrote that Israel has the "first real opportunity in nearly 50 years to conduct a constructive dialogue with the international community over a change in Middle Eastern borders and recognition of Israeli rule on the Golan Heights, as part of the global interest in stabilizing the region."
According to Hauser, in light of the nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers, Israel must act to receive a general "'American pledge,' including with regard to the Golan, with a presidential guarantee and Congressional legislation to ensure Israeli rule there." He added that Israel must work to "upgrade" the presidential promise given by U.S. President Gerald Ford to Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1975, that included American recognition of Israel's need to remain on the Golan Heights even in peacetime.
"Forty years on, in light of Syria’s collapse, the Islamic State’s takeover of huge areas in the Middle East and the 'rotten compromise' expected with the Islamic Republic of Iran, the achievement that Israel needs and can attain is to update the international stance, and ratify and upgrade the U.S. stance on the Golan," Hauser wrote."

Bibi may be losing his mind, a terrible thing to waste. He appears to have DEMANDED of Obama:
- That the US raise its annual gift of money to Israel from $2 billion US to $5 billion US.
- That the US support politically Israel's coming annexation of the Syrian Golan Heights.
- That the US submit to Israel for approval any future deal resolving the Syrian civil war which in my opinion Israel, Saudi Arabia and the US conspired to incite.
He seems to have lost track of the depth of Obama's loathing of him. pl
