Either Israel agree or not. French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and his Spanish counterpart Miguel Moratinos will soon recognize an Arab Palestinian state.
European Union will recognize an Arab Palestinian state in 18 months. This state will be recognized even before negotiations for a permanent settlement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority are concluded.
French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and his Spanish counterpart Miguel Moratinos are soon to write in major European newspaper, promoting an initiative by which the European Union would recognize a Palestinian state in 18 months. The EU would act even before negotiations for a permanent settlement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority are concluded.
According to senior European diplomats and senior Israeli officials, Israel has relayed its opposition to the initiative, warning that it would undermine any chance of a successful peace process.

There is a lot of foolishness in this suggestion from an earlier communist turned Foreign Minister of France, and a papist minister from Spain.
Their statement exposes a leadership in EU more radical than Radical Islam. Because even the PLO headed by Mahmoud Abbas knows that its simply not possible to establish an Arab Palestinian state. You have to have two.
Have the EU-ministers forgotten that Hamas rules in Gaza?
Do Bernard Kouchner and Miguel Moratinos have a solution to this division and civil war between Islamic fractions?
What can prevent Iran to take control over a new born Arab Palestinian state, which in fact will be recognized by EU without borders?
Will Jews be permitted to live inside this new border less statehood, or will it be drafted as a EU-backed racist apartheid state?
Surely, this will become the most «crazy» states in the history of nation building.
