So, I took Sjoerd's advice and visited the news sources. When I visited your second link, I followed-up on National Public Radio (NPR) and came across a critical opinion piece titled: Opinion: Trump's Recognition Of Israel's Claim To Golan Only Creates New Problems.
When I read the title and saw the words creates new problems I got the feeling this might be getting critical of Trump's decision. And indeed a few paragraphs in, the article does not disappoint (for the purposes of answering this question). Here follow some quotes from the article by Aaron David Miller:
In recognizing Israel's sovereignty to the Golan Heights, President Trump has come up with a solution to a problem Washington never had. In doing so, he has created new problems that undermine the U.S. national interest and Trump's own foreign policy agenda, including his stated plan for a peace deal in the region. And here's why.
The move will hand Iran, Hezbollah and Syria more propaganda advantage and might even incentivize them to focus more attention on Golan.
Trump's move on Golan had nothing to do with the national interest and everything to with his politics and his ego.
But U.S. recognition of sovereignty set a damaging precedent both in the Middle East and outside.
First, it undermined not only U.N. resolutions critical to the Arab-Israeli conflict but the U.N. Charter itself, including the principles of peaceful resolution of disputes and the unacceptability of the acquisition of territory by force.
The Arab states — even the Saudis — have rejected the move publicly. And if Trump was expecting their cooperation in either reaching out to Israel or pressuring the Palestinians, that's going to be much harder now.
And to end with the most critical of them all:
The president's Golan decision may well ensure that the door to his Israeli-Palestinian peace plan remains closed for the season.
