4. It is convenient for some to forget that prior prior to the 67 war, the surrounding Arab countries

were planning to destroy Israel, and "push them into the sea"

The fact is Nasser made it clear that their goal was the eradication of Israel

At the same time Syria used the Golan Heights to shell Israeli farms and villages and they grew more frequent in a lead up to the 67 War

When Egypt began massing troops on the Israeli border, Syrian troops massing on the Golan Heights, and Nasser ordered the UN Emergency Forces stationed in the Sinai out, the course was set for war


"Many of the survivors of the Liberty remain bitter, and are convinced the attack was deliberate as they make clear on their web site. In 1991, columnists Rowland Evans and Robert Novak trumpeted their discovery of an American who said he had been in the Israeli war room when the decision was made to knowingly attack the American ship (Washington Post, November 6, 1991). In fact, that individual, Seth Mintz, wrote a letter to the Washington Post on November 9, 1991, in which he said he was misquoted by Evans and Novak and that the attack, was, in fact, a "case of mistaken identity." Moreover, the man who Mintz originally said had been with him, a Gen. Benni Matti, does not exist."

Regardless, people will believe what they want to believe, but in response to the OP, it wouldn't matter what trump did, with the Missile launches that were continuously occurring from Syria, there is no way that Israel would give up the Golan they acquired from the 67 war. without it being part of a comprehensive peace agreement with Syria, which currently doesn't look likely
