The US has no right to lecture Russia over Crimea while it wholeheartedly backs Israel’s illegal occupation of Syria’s territory — RT

illegal occupation of Syria’s territory

 If all are equal before international law, it’s clear some are more equal than others. That much is plain from the fact Washington is driving condemnation of Russia’s reabsorption of Crimea, while defending Israel’s occupations.

The US and its allies have led the charge in the UN to condemn Moscow for the 2014 move that saw it reassert its historic control over the disputed peninsula. A measure that clearly had the support of an overwhelming majority of locals, which has been proven by subsequent American and German polling.

At the same time, though, it has turned a deaf ear towards that same body’s criticism of Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights, internationally recognized as Syrian territory. One gets sanctions, the other gets support.

Special treatment for the US’s top ally in the Middle East seems to be immune to the ebbs and flows of domestic politics. Then-president Donald Trump officially endorsed Israeli control over the mountainous region in a dramatic move in 2019. Since this though, President Joe Biden’s secretary of state, Antony Blinken, has effectively defended that decision, making it clear there will be no U-turn in policy. “As a practical matter, the control of the Golan in that situation I think remains of real importance to Israel’s security,” Blinken told CNN earlier this year.

In 1981, the Golan Heights were annexed and many inhabitants of the region to this day reject the citizenship of the occupier. Peace talks have failed and the Israelis have made it clear that they won’t be giving up any of their claims in the area.
