Palestinian „terrorist“ vs. Ukrainian „freedom fighter“

The brazen double speak of most western politicians and media „experts“ knows no limits.
In order to justify Israeli violence and maintain the constant portrayal of Israel as innocent victim of the very people it occupies and suppresses since decades, every uniformed Palestinian had to be defamed as „terrorist“ or at least „with terrorist links“. This would apply to almost every member of a Palestinian security organization including traffic policemen of the Hamas rulers of Gaza.

At the same time when it comes to the worst violent, militant and at times even antisemitic mob those people are romanticized and hyped as „freedom fighters“ or „activists“ as long as they oppose pro-Russian people, be the latter a democratically elected government or citizens not sharing their anti-Russian views.

Whenever any ethnic or religious group in a pro-Russian country demanded secession or separatism US and most western European governments were the first to praise such „freedom movements“ and expect the ruling governments to immediately cede power or allow „reforms“. So, in a new climax of shamelessly biased coverage of events the removal of Ukraines elected government was cheered as a victory of democracy. So, it is legitimate to forcefully remove the regular government, but it is not legitimate for vast portions of the (East) Ukrainian population to oppose the non-elected and thus illegitimate new „government“ in Kiev?
