European Parliament: East Jerusalem should be Palestinian capital
The European Parliament supports the creation of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with agreed land swaps, its president said Wednesday. It embraced the vision for peace in the Middle East as outlined by U.S. President Barack Obama in a May 19 address in Washington, European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek said.

Addressing the Knesset in Jerusalem, Buzek however reiterated direct peace negotiations were the "only solution."

In Ramallah on Tuesday, he said the parliament opposed Palestinian plans to seek United Nations recognition in September of their state in the West Bank and Gaza, without negotiating this with Israel.

The Palestinians have said negotiations with of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are conditional on a freeze of Israeli construction in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, fearing that settlements will continue to expand unchecked as talks crawl on indefinitely.

3. Looking for a distraction to avoid getting their own house in order?
For shame, little dears.

The entertainment is that, after centuries of burning Jews alive in their own homes and other hideous and unpunished murders which forced Jews to leave for any territory that would accept them, they are now terrified of Muslim emigration into their pristine countries.

The Lord my God is a jealous god, and really good at spite.

4. Europeans have the Chutzpah


To think they have jurisdiction.


Europeans have no moral right to dictate anything to Israel,Ever.
