Really? Sweden to recognize the Palestinian State



Sweden is to "recognize the state of Palestine", Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has said, the first long-term EU member country to do so.

"The conflict between Israel and Palestine can only be solved with a two-state solution," he said during his inaugural address in parliament.

It should be "negotiated in accordance with international law", he said.
Sweden last month voted out the centre-right Alliance coalition of Fredrik Reinfeldt after eight years.

That allowed the Social Democrats led by Mr. Lofven to form a government with other parties on the left including the Greens. He said: 
"A two-state solution requires mutual recognition and a will to peaceful co-existence. 
Sweden will therefore recognize the state of Palestine," Mr. Lofven said on Friday, without giving a timeline for the recognition.

Sweden will join more than 130 other countries that recognize a Palestinian state. Most of the EU's 28 member states have refrained from recognizing Palestinian statehood and those that do such as Hungary, Poland and Slovakia did so before joining the bloc.

Lets look at the facts here.....

"A two-state solution requires mutual recognition and a will to peaceful co-existence. 
This is very correct.
However is not possible, not because of the Israeli´s….but because the Palestinians never will accept a state of Israel.
And because Hamas rules half Palestine and who has sworn publicly never to accept the state 
of Israel. 



SDR wonders what part of two way Sweden has a problem to understand?
This because its hardly a two way road, if only Israel is willing to take a permanent step towards peace.
