One of the top Democrats has indicated that he supports Israel’s bid to get the US to recognize the country’s annexation of the Golan Heights.
Responding to a question from the Jewish Insider last week, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer’s spokesperson said that the Congressman believes that “Israel should maintain control of the Golan Heights.”
