It’s meaningless until they all march into the UN and try to impose Statehood and those borders.

There are something like 80 countries who supposedly have done what Spain is now on board to do.

Stand with Israel or bow to Islam.

Seems Spain has chosen.

Am I missing something? Palestine did not exist in 1967, did it? I thought the West Bank was part of Jordan, and the Gaza was part of Egypt. Israel comprised the rest.

Spain is a lost cause. They are run by a total Marxist. Instead of making stupid comments on Israel, maybe they should focus on their impending financial meltdown.

Spain speaks...ha.

Isn’t Spain about to go belly-up? They must feel the need to suck-up to the checkbook holders in Europe.

Maybe Spain would be happy with the lines the way they were during the Spanish Inquisition.

Not openly, they're hiding behind patriotism and loyalty to America. Kinda like a lot of 1930s Europeans.

Well in that case Spain needs to reinstate Generalissimo Francisco Franco who was head of state in Spain in 1967, and is still dead.

Israel should declare that all capital inflows from Spain into Israel will be tax free for 25 years and that any Spanish citizen may have a bank account in Israel and that the activities in those accounts will never be reported to the Spanish government.

Do they want the whole package? A contiguous pallee-stinian state? An Israel whose only border is with pallee-stein? Israel North and Israel South?

From the “speech”:

“with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and permanent Israeli borders with Palestine”

“Palestinian ... in a sovereign and contiguous state. “

If we agree to call a dog’s tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have?

Four. Call it whatever you want, pass all the laws you want, issue all the UN declarations to want, its still a tail, and a dog still has only four legs.

The two state solution was instituted the day Israel was born; Jordan for the arab palestinians, and Israel for the jewish palestinians. The third state sandwiched between them, with no economy, no sources of employment, no industry, that lives by whatever it can shake down by threatening terrorism, is not a viable state and will never be one.

Spain chose the dark side the day they elected Zapatero. We did the same when we elected Obama. We’ve still got a chance to set it right, and we’d better get it rightt his time or bad things will happen.

War is coming, whatever we do. I don’t think we have a choice of preventing war. Our only choice is whether or not we are on the right side of it.

Under Aznar, Unemployment fell by 19%, a zero level of deficit was achieved, and inflation fell below 2%. GDP grew, taxes were reduced, and public services improved. State-owned companies were privatised: Iberia Airlines, BBVA, Telefónica, Repsol, Aceralia. Public spending was decreased and uptake of private healthcare increased.

“Israel should declare that all capital inflows from Spain into Israel will be tax free for 25 years....”

That’s genius.

Unfortunately, while this article is about Spain, it could just as well have been about many other countries. All this would do is instigate deeper economical reasons to put embargos on Israel, which would play into Europe’s old canards against Jews.

I’m probably taking your suggestion more seriously than you intended it, but I do think Israel needs to fight back in clever ways like that.
