Uruguay also expected to recognize independent Palestinian state based on 1967 borders in March; Ecuador also due to open PA embassy.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki said that in the coming weeks, Chile and Paraguay will declare their recognition of an independent Palestinian state based on 1967 borders, Israel Radio reported on Sunday.

Al-Maliki said that Chile plans on making its declaration in the coming weeks, and that Chile's president Sebastian Pinera is even due to visit the West Bank in three months.

Paraguay is also expected to declare its recognition of Palestine in the coming weeks. Al-Maliki also announced the opening of a Palestinian embassy in Ecuador, which already declared its recognition of a Palestinian state.

The Muslims will draw a lesson from this -- killing innocent people by the thousands works!

Cool, but are they intelligent enough to find it on a map?

As far as I’m concerned this is a declaration of war by these countries.

We’ll see.

I’m not surprised about Bolivia and Ecuador, both Marxist dictatorships, or countries like Argentina and Brazil, both semi-fascist.

Chile? We’ll see. So far, we’ve only heard from the Palestinians on this issue, not from the Chileans themselves.

“Chile has the largest Palestinian population”

Well, then. That explains most of this move. Probably more than a few Hamas / PFLP / PLO / Al Aska Martyr’s Brigades, et al supporters to be found there.

I seem to remember that many escaped Nazis found refuge in South America.

Interesting - but they still want to divide Israel which is a determined goal of the muzzies.
