EU initiative: recognition of Palestinian state by next year

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and his Spanish counterpart Miguel Moratinos are promoting an initiative by which the European Union would recognize a Palestinian state in 18 months, even before negotiations for a permanent settlement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority are concluded.

According to senior European diplomats and senior Israeli officials, Israel has relayed its opposition to the initiative - warning that it would undermine any chance of a successful peace process.


  1. Washington will expect its client, the UK government, to sabotage this move. Failing that it'll have to be the American way - bomb Brussels and Strasbourg. 

  2. "...warning that it would undermine any chance of a successful peace process"

    What peace process?  I see a "piece" process,  that is,  everytime the process resumes it gives more time for more to be stolen, as the US acts like counsel for Israel.  Israeli opposition should receive a good belly laugh.

  3. <span><span>"France is training Palestinian police, businesses are being created in the West Bank..."</span> 
    Here is a good guarantee that even the new Palestinian state will mirror its Hegelian others,  with an elite and a small layer of fat to protect it.  Where are the Palestinians in Gaza in this proposal,  or do they just not exist?</span>

  4. We now know that Israel doesn't want peace but a peace process. If true, a Palestinian state to be announced thus creating a new dynamic and Israel, as expected, picks a huge fuss that would only  highlight Israel's rogue, pariah status and further isolate it from the International community. That's one step in the right direction. Israel is digging its own grave..
