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.
spain and the like-minded are evil.
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.
Sadly a surprising number of FReepers have chosen to stand with Spain and the others.
Spain can do what ever the heck they want...it’s Bibi’s call.
Maybe its time to support the Basgue separatists.
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.
Standing *against* Israel?
Holding my breath waiting for them to recognize a Basque state.
Well that’s creepy. I’m guessing the two goth girls are Zapatero’s daughters?
Well in that case Spain needs to reinstate Generalissimo Francisco Franco who was head of state in Spain in 1967, and is still dead.
Who are those goth wierdos in the photo with kenyan and Wookie?
That’s Bull Sh/t.
Wait until I come across those posters.
Ron Paul supporters?
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.
Isn’t there a line in the Bible that says .....
The whole world will be against Israel
yea Spain, you’re having such great success with the muslimes ......
