Sweden's incoming prime minister Stefan Löfven announced to his cabinet on Friday, Oct. 3, that the Scandinavian country is about to become the first nation to officially recognize the state of 'Palestine.'Does Sweden really have respect? Don't be surprised if there's Swedes who don't respect their own politicians. Having said that, the vicious mentality clogging Sweden makes it hard to feel sorry for them and the internal mess they're causing themselves. All this news does is enforce my decision I would never buy products from Ikea, Volvo and Saab (and the latter is no longer sold here or in the USA, to my knowledge). I can't support a country where the mindset is potentially worse than in the UK.
In his inaugural speech to the Swedish parliament, Löfven insisted that the only way to end the conflict is for there to be a two-state solution. Bizarrely, he insisted that the solution had to be "negotiated in accordance with international law," and "requires mutual recognition and a will to peaceful co-existence." And with that, he announced, "Sweden will therefore recognize the state of Palestine."
Not sure what magic wand he was waving (or magic mushrooms he was chewing) when Löfven concluded that Sweden's recognition of a 'Palestinian State' was the equivalent of international law or would result in the necessary "mutual recognition and will to peaceful co-existence."
The United Nations General Assembly voted to approve the recognition of 'Palestine' as a sovereign state in 2012, but the European Union and most EU countries have not yet given their official recognition.
Nael Touqan, Chairman of Palestinian Association of Stockholm told Sweden's English-language paper The Local:
"We like this news so much. This is what we have been fighting for. Our religious festival Eid starts tomorrow and we consider this as a present for all Palestinians."
"Sweden has great respect in Europe so we hope this means that other nations will follow its lead," he added. "This is the only way to pressure Israel."

SWEDEN WILL RECOGNIZE PALESTINIAN STATE
Continuing to make it difficult to feel sorry for all the suffering they've caused themselves with the "immigrants" they're bringing in, Sweden's politicians signal their latest hostility to Israel, legitimizing a lie at Israel's expense:
