IRELAND MOVES AGAINST ISRAEL AS THEY PREPARE TO RECOGNIZE PALESTINE AS A STATE

The decision follows the passing of a motion in Ireland’s upper house in October calling on the government to formally recognize a Palestinian state. Members of parliament in the lower house are due to discuss the motion proposed by the opposition Sinn Fein party later on Tuesday and on Wednesday, according to Reuters. A government spokesman said it will not oppose the bill, meaning MPs will not be required to vote. The motion calls on the government to “officially recognize the State of Palestine, on the basis of the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as the capital, as established in UN resolutions, as a further positive contribution to securing a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”
