Lines were drawn in Europe on Wednesday as the Union failed to agree on a unified approach to a Palestinian bid for a diplomatic upgrade at the United Nations. Germany declared that it would not back the PA's unilateral bid, while Switzerland and Denmark joined a growing list of European countries that do support it.Britain's politicians are just as taqqiya-laden as the ummah itself, and I wouldn't be surprised if they'd support the bid anyway. Regardless, they're still as hostile as always to Israel's existence.
Britain announced it would support the Palestinian moves only if it received assurances that the PA would return to peace talks and would not seek to prosecute Israelis through the International Criminal Court.
With overwhelming support from the developing world, the Palestinians appear certain to earn approval in the 193-member UN General Assembly for a status upgrade to "observer state" on Thursday.Canada's announced they won't support such a bid either.
Israel and its main ally the United States oppose the move, which would implicitly recognize Palestinian statehood.
"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.
France said on Tuesday it would vote in favor of non-member status and Switzerland and Denmark have now followed suit.Any country's government that's going to support a resolution like this cannot possibly be expected to defend even their own countries against Islamofascism and sharia. And "non-member status" is no excuse either. What they're doing is just as disrespectul to their own populations as it is to Israel.
"The decision to support the resolution is in accordance with Switzerland's policy to seek a negotiated, just, and durable peace between Israel and an independent and viable Palestinian state within secure and internationally recognized borders," the Swiss Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The Swiss decision followed a visit to Berne by PA President Mahmoud Abbas this month as the country hesitated between voting in favor of the resolution or abstaining.
