'Therefore after the passover holiday, I intend to bring to the government a resolution calling for a new community on the Golan Heights named after President Donald J Trump'.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his government "racist" Monday, saying the US should treat the Middle East on a "level playing field".

PM Netanyahu announced the idea on Twitter on Tuesday as a way to thank President Trump for his "historic decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights", but he was quickly met with scorn and derision.

In 1967, Israel seized the territory in the Six-Day War, and then annexed it in 1981.

Last month, Netanyahu traveled to the White House to meet with Trump about the decree to recognize Golan as Israeli territory.

Feds to file new charges against Michael Avenatti
Avenatti also allegedly raided another client's settlement in 2017 to pay $2.5 million for his portion of a jet, prosecutors said. Avenatti is scheduled to be arraigned on April 29 in federal court in Orange County, Calif., the prosecutor's office said.


The US embassy was also relocated from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem past year, which sparked anger in the Muslim world.

A resolution calling to name a settlement after the United States president is expected to be submitted to the Israeli government after the Passover.

Netanyahu was reelected to a fifth term on April 9 and appears likely to build a coalition government including religious ultranationalists opposed to Palestinian statehood.

Israel annexed the mountain plateau of Golan in 1981, a move unrecognised by most of the worldwide community. An estimated 20,000 Israelis live in Golan Heights settlements, which most of the worldwide community considers illegal. It also reiterated in March that it "does not recognise Israeli Sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights".
