Why *occupied* Golan Heights?

The once "occupied" Hong Kong

To the BBC World Service:
Why do you stress "occupied" Golan Heights. Yes, they are occupied, but there's a background. As there is with, say, Tibet. But you never say "occupied" Tibet. You don't do so because China is strong and tough and you're scared of them. 
Admit it.
All I ask is consistency. 
If you can't bring yourselves to say "occupied" Tibet then please don't say "occupied" Golan Heights. 
As the Chinese say: all same-same.
