Huh? Israel already has the Carolinas, which are among the many states with anti-BDS laws.

I learned yesterday that the Golan Heights contains a very large oil field and that Genie Energy is involved in extracting fossil fuels from the area. I originally thought that Trump declared the land as belonging to Israel merely because he is a bad actor in the conflict, but now realize it’s primarily about money and oil.
