Hypocrisy Heights

As you probably know, the US recognised Israel’s sovereignty over Golan Heights, which are a territory of Syria occupied by Israel…

The Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, who earlier called on Russia to return Crimea to Ukraine, does not see any hypocrisy in Washington’s actions:

“You imposed sanctions on Russia for annexing Crimea,” Hiba Nasr of Sky News said to Pompeo Saturday at the U.S. embassy in Beirut, Lebanon, according to the State Department. “Now you are going to recognize the sovereign — the Israeli sovereignty over these territories. Isn’t this a double-standard policy?”

“No, not at all,” Pompeo said, CBS News wrote.

“What the president did with the Golan Heights is recognize the reality on the ground and the security situation necessary for the protection of the Israeli state. It’s that – it’s that simple.”

What is the reality on the ground in Crimea? Crimea has a very high Russian military presence, and the overwhelming majority of locals support it. Likewise, all national minorities in Crimea have their rights respected, Crimea has three official languages, Russian, Ukrainian, and Crimean Tatar. That’s is in stark contrast to the Golan Heights, from whence the autochthonous population was expelled. But I guess the Russian goyim don’t have the right to defend their interests.

Realising that Pompeo is full of shit, the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs considers the Golan Heights, “a territory occupied by Israel.”
