Fabulous. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just announced that all Israeli products made in the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, will be labeled as ‘Made in Israel’ when exported to the United States. As such, Pompeo deserves to have his own wine label. Mike Pompeo is the most pro-Israel Secretary of State ever.
‘Pompeo Wine’ to Be Served to Visiting Secretary of State in Binyamin Winery
By Jewish Press, November 19, 2020
Israelis get a last-time opportunity to raise a glass of Psagot wine in a robust Lechayim to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is paying a visit to the winery this week. The brand, “Pompeo,” has been sold by this winery for about a year, it is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot, with a label bearing the secretary’s name – a thank you gift, if you will, for his statement that the settlement enterprise does not violate international law.
This will be the first time ever that a US Secretary of State visits an Israeli settlement in Judea and Samaria, seeing as until 2019 the US position was that these settlements actually were in violation of international law. In addition, Pompeo is expected to visit the Golan Heights, including, possibly, Trump Heights, the town named as a show of gratitude for the administration’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
The president already owns a winery – Trump Winery, in Virginia, which is owned and operated by Trump’s son Eric, under the name Eric Trump Wine Manufacturing LLC.
The Psagot Winery website posted this note, alongside an image of its Pompeo wine:
Following the European Court of Justice ruling that products manufactured in Judea and Samaria, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights must not say Made in Israel, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a proclamation indicating the legality of Israel’s position in these areas. As a show of gratitude and appreciation, we at Psagot Winery produced a limited edition of wine named Pompeo.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian Authority on Wednesday organized a mass protest against Secretary Pompeo’s expected tour of “a colonial settlement winery.” The protesters “waved Palestinian flags and chanted slogans against Pompeo’s anticipated visit to the Psagot Winery, part of the Israeli colonial settlement of Psagot, established on stolen Palestinian land.”
We took a look at this picture of the mass protest – we think there were about 50 demonstrators. So, it’s safe to say many PA Arabs didn’t give a hoot.
