Fatah praises Belgian Senate for supporting Palestinian State

Not a single Belgian senator opposed the resolution. Representatives of the whole political spectrum voted for, with a few who abstained.  Belgium is in a deep political crisis but still finds time to express hostility against Israel!  Flemish and Walloon alike.

Fatah Praises Belgian Draft Resolution Supporting Palestinian State

RAMALLAH, July 16, 2011 (WAFA) – Fatah movement Saturday praised the Belgian Senate decision on Thursday to adopt a draft resolution submitted by the Socialist group, calling on the Belgian government and all the EU countries to recognize a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, Saturday said Fatah spokesman Jamal Nazzal.

In a press release by the movement’s Information and Cultural Commission, Nazzal said that the Belgian decision devotes the anti-extremism parliament, as well as expresses the independence and freedom of opinion of the Belgian representatives.

Nazzal said that the cornerstone of our disagreement with some European countries is that they discretely grant Israel the right to veto the Palestinians’ self-determination. [Not Belgium]

He added that Israel’s procrastination in negotiations over the past 20 years is a proof that the occupying state will not allow the Palestinians to exercise their right to self-determination, as well as it aims to control the Palestinian future without any time limit.

Fatah expressed hope that the Belgian government will enact the draft resolution and called to terminate the Israeli veto power over the lives of 10 million Palestinians.
