Buttigieg's Butting in, Not Trump

Democratic presidential candidate calls US recognition of Golan ‘interference’ in Israeli politics

Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., and a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, denounced on Tuesday U.S. President Donald Trump’s official recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights as an “interference” in the State of Israel and its politics.

No surprise, but the American Democratic Left is totally fokokt wrong, yet again. Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and one of the recent presidential wannabes doesn't understand simple terminology.

Interference is the noun of interfere:

interfereverb [ I ]B2 to involve yourself in a situation when your involvement is not wanted or is not helpful:

 UK ​ /ˌɪn.təˈfɪər/ US ​ /ˌɪn.t̬ɚˈfɪr/That means when a foreign government, leader, NGO etc. affirms, recognizes, states agreement with a policy of another country, that isn't interference. But when a foreign government, leader, NGO etc. insists on a contradictory policy to that of a sovereign country, that is interference.

For example U.S. President Donald Trump’s official recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights shows proper diplomatic support and respect for the State of Israel, in contrast to the interference in internal Israeli affairs of Buttigieg who won't recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Trump's official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's Capital City shows proper respect for the State of Israel, while foreign governments, leaders, NGOs etc. who refuse to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's Capital City are exhibiting interference in Israel's basic policies.

We Israelis are enjoying the fact that for the first time in the History of the State of Israel, the United States of America has a pro-Israel President.

Buttigieg doesn't know bupkis.
