European Parliament urges US to recognize Palestinian State

European Parliament calls on EU and US to address the Palestinians’ ‘legitimate demand’ for UN statehood recognition.

STRASBOURG (EJP, by Yossi Lempkowicz)---Ahead of the EU-US summit in Washington later this month, the European Parliament has called on both sides to address "Palestinians' legitimate demand" at the United Nations.

In a resolution passed in a show of hands Thursday in Strasbourg, France, where the assembly holds its monthly session, MEPs called on the EU and the US to support emerging democracies in North Africa, push for a resumption of direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, and "address the legitimate demand of the Palestinians to be represented as a state at the United Nations as a result of negotiations within the UN framework".
At the European parliament, it's neither Shimon Peres nor Netanyahu who get standing ovations.  It's Mahmoud Abbas who gets a standing ovation.  On 4 Feb 2009, PA President Mahmoud Abbas in an address to the European Parliament in Strasbourg"You must stop cooperating with Israel as it's placing itself above the law. Their actions have no legal basis and must be ended. Israeli leaders should also be charged with infringing international humanitarian law."   They love Mahmoud Abbas as they loved Arafat.
