Argentina & Brazil Recognize “A Free & Independent Palestinian State” – Uruguay, Chile, Paraguay & Peru Expected To Follow

A free & independent Palestine could happen sooner then you think. The Palestinians are moving ahead with the creation of the state and an important part of the world is collaborating with them.

Argentina on Monday followed Brazil in recognizing a “free and independent” Palestine, with Uruguay, Chile, Paraguay and Peru are also expected to follow suit early in the new year.

Whilst the Americans have been slapped back by the Israeli’s over their refusal to freeze illegal building, The Palestinians, should consider a unilateral declaration of statehood, perhaps by requesting resolutions from the United Nations General Assembly or Security Council.

Let’s see the so called Muslim nations throughout the Middle East, Gulf and Asia stand up and do the same as their Latino counterparts have.

  1. Norway has upgraded the diplomatic standing of Palestine.

    Norway on Wednesday upgraded the standing of the Palestinian representation in Oslo from ‘general delegation’ to a ‘diplomatic delegation,’ Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere told reporters after meeting caretaker Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.

    Around four months ago, France, Spain and Portugal were the first countries to have upgraded the standing of Palestinian representation.

    In early December, several South American countries, including Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, declared their recognition of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders.

    But late on Wednesday, US Congress approved a resolution expressing opposition to any measure that would recognize an independent Palestinian state.

    In a vote of 435-0, the House of Representatives passed a resolution opposing a unilateral declaration of an independent Palestinian state and condemning international recognition of such a state.

    The US House resolution specifically calls on the US delegation to the UN Security Council (UNSC) to “veto any resolution by the UNSC to establish or recognize a Palestinian state outside of an agreement negotiated by the two parties.”

    The House resolution is in stark contrast with the Obama administration’s promise from day one to push for the creation of an independent Palestinian state as part of a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

    Bolivia is also expected to recognize Palestine as an independent state in the coming days, after acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas spoke with Bolivian President Evo Morales regarding the same subject.

    The US is the first country to recognize Israel in the United Nations and has almost vetoed all UNSC resolutions critical of Israel’s actions. Since 1982, the United States has vetoed dozens of UN Security Council resolutions that were critical of Israel.

    There are more than 50 US-based lobbying groups that support Israeli policies in the United States in various ways.
