France, Spain Back Plan To Create “Palestinian” State, Germany Says No
Well, we already know that Spain and France are willing to surrender to terrorists and hardcore Islamists, so, we should not be surprised in the least
(The Blaze) Spain’s foreign minister says Spain will vote in favor of recognition of a Palestinian state at the U.N. General Assembly this week.
Jose Manuel Garcia Margallo told parliament Wednesday that Spain would support the Palestinian bid at the U.N., because it feels it is the best way to advance toward peace.
As TheBlaze reported on Tuesday, France became the first major European country to come out in favor of U.N. recognition, a move seen as a setback for Israel. The timing of the French move seemed to be rooted in an attempt to sway other European nations in the same direction. In Spain’s case, such a notion took root.
The resolution would turn “Palestine” from an observer to a nonmember observer state, which is a big step in moving the terrorist territories of “Palestine” into a full fledged voting member of the United Nations, an institution rife with dictators, bullies, and terrorists. The vote is to come on Thursday. Portugal and Switzerland have already stated the will vote for the “Palestinians”. Germany, on the other hand
Germany will not back a Palestinian bid for a diplomatic upgrade at the United Nations, the government spokesman said on Wednesday.
“We are assessing the situation and want as much agreement as possible with our European partners… But it is certain that Germany will not vote for such a resolution,” spokesman Steffen Seibert told a news conference.
In other words, they won’t back the bid to make a terrorist “nation” into a member of the UN. Perhaps if those in Gaza and the West Bank would stop launching suicide attacks and rockets against Israeli civilians, oh, and calling for the utter destruction of Israel and Jews, something could be done. Alas, many Progressives/liberals worldwide want the same thing.
