Spain, Ireland & Norway Formally Recognise Palestinian State

Spain, Ireland & Norway Formally Recognise Palestinian State
May 29 2024 Share

Spain, Ireland, and Norway have officially recognised a Palestinian state to promote a political solution in the Middle East conflict.

This collective action aims to inspire other European nations to follow suit, potentially facilitating a Gaza ceasefire and the release of hostages held by Hamas.

The move has sparked a severe backlash from Israel, which accused these countries of supporting terrorism. Israel withdrew its ambassadors from these nations and reprimanded their envoys in Tel Aviv, showcasing footage of the October 7 attacks.

The recognition increases pressure on Israel, following calls from international courts to halt Israel Defense Forces operations in southern Gaza and allegations of war crimes against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Western countries have also imposed sanctions on Israeli settlers in occupied Palestinian territories. Diplomatic recognition typically involves formal credential exchanges with the Palestinian Authority, upgrading existing consulates to embassies.

Ireland’s Prime Minister, Simon Harris, emphasized the historical significance of this decision, advocating for other European nations to join in efforts to achieve peace. Norway and Spain echoed similar sentiments, with Spain’s Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, asserting that the recognition of Palestine is crucial for peace and justice.

Israel’s strong reaction includes public condemnations and provocative social media posts, particularly targeting Spain. Diplomatic observers believe Israel’s firm stance aims to deter other countries from recognizing Palestine. Currently, around 139 countries recognize Palestine, while many European nations and the US condition their recognition on a comprehensive political resolution.

‘Pirate Politicians’: Bernard Grech Speaks Out On Court Case

'Pirate Politicians': Bernard Grech Speaks Out On Court Case
May 28 2024 Share

Taking to social media, Nationalist Party leader Bernard Grech said that the people of Malta deserve better than these ‘pirate politicians’.

‘You deserve better than a government obsessed about defending those who robbed you’.

‘You deserve better than a Prime Minister who has lost so much control that his own supporters went to protest outside of court against his own wishes.’

‘You deserve better than a government so confused with problems it created to address problems you are facing’.

‘You deserve politicians who are there for you and not for themselves. These pirates are politicians. Do not let carry on stealing the money of the people, throwing away Malta’s name and running away with our money and dignity.’

What do you make of Grech’s message?
