"A Druse man and his horse at a farm near the village of Mas'ade in the Golan Heights. The 400-plus square miles of the Israeli-controlled #Golan, on the northeast border with Syria, is both strategic plateau and lush agricultural terrain. The @UnitedNations Security Council condemned Israel's annexation of the region. But even the 22,000 Druse residents who have spent years dreaming that the land would be returned to Syria have begun to acknowledge a new reality. They benefit from Israeli tourism and farming, and they understand that Israel is the only realistic authority that can defend the area from extremists.
