[Statement] Pastor Greg Laurie Issues Statement Commending US Recognition of Israel’s Sovereignty of Golan Heights

RIVERSIDE, Calif., March 21, 2019 — Pastor, evangelist, and nationally syndicated radio host Greg Laurie issues the following statement:
 
“The Golan Heights is a massively strategic geopolitical position which has, up until now, been considered a ‘buffer zone’ or ‘disputed’ between Israel and Syria. The Golan Heights is part of land that God gave to Abraham and his descendants and has been controlled by Israel since 1967 following the Six-Day war. It was once used to stage attacks against Israel by those hostile to her very existence, and terror groups largely funded by Iran, would do so again if given the opportunity. Today’s announcement by the president is critically important to Israel’s long term health, stability, and the prosperity of Israel and her people.”
