Mike Pompeo Wins Israeli Wine Label

A winery in the Israeli settlement of Psagot has introduced a special label named for USA Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. In a statement last week, the central West Bank’s (Judea & Samaria) Psagot winery thanked Pompeo, saying he had “recognized the Jewish right to self-determination in our historical homeland” in November 2019. At the time, Pompeo repudiated a 1978 State Department legal opinion that held that civilian settlements in the territories are “inconsistent with international law,” in a move welcomed by Jerusalem and slammed by the Palestinians as well as much of the international community. In November 2019 the European Court of Justice decided that products made in Israeli settlements must be labeled as such when they are marketed in the EU. The Pompeo bottle is not a new flavor but a special label that will be used on several varieties of Psagot wines. (VFI News)
