It’s a historical meditation, but in the great symbolic meditation que it deepens Israel’s Islamism even further More than six months have passed since the disastrous war against Hamas in Gaza.

The Palestinians welcomed the announcements as an affirmation of his decades-long research in the state of East Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza France, territories of Israel returned to the 1967 Middle East war well … yes one more check.

If only 140 countries (more than two-thirds of the United States) recognized a Palestinian state, the cascade of announcements of these miracles could generate momentum at a time when even pseudonyms are looking for Israel hmuch criticism for his conduct in Gaza.

The second coup against Israel in a week

It was the second blow to Israel’s international reputation this week, after the fiscal chief of the International Criminal Court said he was seeking arrest orders for Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and his defense minister. The International Court of Justice is also considering genocide charges that Israel has vigorously denied.

“It is time to put words into action, to decide for the millions of innocent Palestinians who suffer we are with them, so that there is hope“, declared the president of the Spanish government, Pedro Sánchez, in front of the Spanish Parliament.

The socialist representative who announced his intention to work for this recognition at the end of the yearI have been negotiating with other European capitals for months take this decision which formalized the miércoles in Congress.

In Spain, recognition occurred on the basis of a resolution adopted in 2014 by all the political groups represented in Parliament, but it did not materialize in practice.

Sánchez, one of the most critical voices in the European Union against the military operation launched by Israel in the face of the attack on the precedents of the Palestinian Islamic movement Hamás, on October 7 accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of having put him “in danger ” the possibility of the two States faced with their policy of “pain and much destruction” in the Gaza Strip.

The initiative of Madrid, Dublin and Oslo was welcomed as such the beginning of an “important stage” for Hamas and de hecho “histórico” by the Organización para la Liberación de Palestina (PLO), considered internationally as the only legitimate representative of the Palestinian people.

The Norwegian Prime Minister, Jonas Gahr Støre, was the first to know about the decision in Oslo, where he negotiated with the now moribund friends who compromised the Israelis and Palestinians to accept peaceful coexistence between independent states.

“We must realize the only alternative that offers a political solution to both Israelis and Palestinians: two states living side by side, in peace and security,” he said.

After specifying that the event will take place on May 28, we issued a “call to sign” to other countries to do the same.

The two-state solution is “the only credible path to peace and security for Israel, Palestine and their peoples,” Irish Prime Minister Simon Harris said from Dublin. According to the Palestinian Authority’s memoirs, 142 of the 193 UN member states have so far expressed recognition of a Palestinian state.

Other countries are Sumarian

On the initiative of Madrid, Dublin and Oslo could summarize other European countries. In March the leaders of Slovenia and Malta signed a joint declaration in Brussels with Madrid and Dublin, expressing their desire to take the same step.
