Israel's control over the Golan Heights, which was occupied from Syria during the 1967 Middle East war, has never been recognized by the United States or any other country around the world. That said, Israel's claim over the territory has not been actively challenged in recent years due to the raging conflict in Syria, in which the Assad regime has had more pressing challenges. With the end of the Syrian conflict seemly in sight, however, the fate of the disputed region has once again surfaced on the diplomatic agenda.

Guests Brigadier General (Res.) Yossi Kuperwasser, Project Director on Middle East Developments, Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, and Dr. Mordechai Nisan, retired lecture on Middle East Studies at Hebrew University Jerusalem. Analyst Amir Oren. Host Jonathan Hessen.
