    Colombia has just become the 137th state to recognise Palestine. If Ireland needs to do this simple decent thing soon.

If the Palestinians just let Israel do what it wants to do they will lose everything so they are instead following in the footsteps of Michael Collins and George Washington.
    You still love Trump who supports this.

    It is actually threads like this that vindicate the Israeli right. The hatred for Israel just oozes out, and you quickly recognise the substitution of hatred of Israel for the historical hatred of Jews. It's the exact same substance if course. Even the majority of the Israeli left recognise the force of it, the baseness of it, and realise that there is currently no alternative to a strongly right wing government in Israel.

    Yes..I do not understand the delay, except for the civil servants who have to check with their masters as to what opinion they would like us to have on the issue.

    The backlash against Nethanyahu's 'nation state law' is accelerating with more and more Israelis and Israel-supporters joining in condemnation of the apartheid law. The state that set out to be "a light unto the nations" has become the pariah with only one friend in the world - the USA.
    I would not underestimate Israel's influence abroad - it has good relations with Russia, for example, despite Russia being an ally of Iran. And I am quite sure it retains effective back-channel relations with Saudi Arabia.

    Most interesting is the backlash within Israel itself. It is something that would just not be allowed happen in Apartheid South Africa.

    For some it vindicates the shelling of civilians - they killed a baby yesterday - and the shooting dead of teenagers throwing stones as well as the bulldozing of native homes to make way for rich outsiders to set up holiday villages. It vindicates the establishing of an apartheid repressive state that is condemned by all but one country in the world.

    I hope that, along with a growing number of people worldwide and in Israel, it "oozes hatred" of these offences to humanity. That it doesn't for a clique of posters here shows why more and more Jews are turning their backs on this state of terror.

    In essence what you are saying there is that the Zionists in Palestine should continue along the path of increasing sadistic treatment of the indigenous Palestinians because well outsiders are increasingly critical of Zionism due to it's sadism. Not very rational now is that?

    Yes, it vindicates for all the terrorist organisations not just Hamas the killing of civilians, whether putting their own children into the firing line with knives and a mission to stab Jews, putting a suicide bomb under a burka, or firing a rocket from a bedroom in a residential apartment block. The Israel hating peanut gallery raises a cheer at every such atrocity.
