Iceland recognises Palestinian State

The parliment of Iceland, has passed a resolution 38 of 63 votes in favour of a resolution to recognise Palestine “as an independent and sovereign state”.  Iceland is the first western European Country to accept Palestine as an independent state on borders pre-dating the six-day war of 1967.

Ice was among 11 European Unesco members to support the move.  This indeed is a welcome move for those people who support free and independent Palestine.  Iceland has show is support for ‘real’ peace in the Middle East, one which has full support of its parliament on doing what’s best for both Palestine and Israel.  I believe it’s time for other European Countries to follow Iceland’s example.
