Ecuador formally recognised Palestine as an independent state on Friday, following the lead of its neighbours Bolivia, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay earlier this month.

Huh? Is it a breaking news?

I think it's wonderful. I hope the rest of the world joins them, though I'm not holding my breathe....on the other hand, what is going on there is quite obvious to everybody. It's more a case of The Emperor Has No Clothes, imo. People are scared to say it.
But not South America, and not Ahmedinijad.

"What is Zionism?
Zionism is a relatively new thing.
It has only existed for a century.
Zionism redefines the true essential nature of the People of Israel, and substitutes for it a completely contradictory and opposite character - a materialistic worldly nation.
Their misfortune is lack of what other nations possess, i.e. a state and army.
Their salvation is possession of a state and army etc.
This is clearly spelled out in the circles of Zionist thought, and among the leaders of the Zionist State, that through changing the nature and character of the People of Israel and by changing their way of thinking they can set before the People of Israel "their salvation" -- a state and an army."
This state and army which was given Palestine after WW II, and has held them in a brutal military occupation ever since.
This state and army is secular, and basically spits on the religion--which is explicit about caring for people.
Much like so many of the so-called Christians, who claim America as their own.
They make a mockery of those they claim to represent.

In a 90 minute 'debate', neither Joe Biden nor Sarah Palin even once used the dreaded P-Word. Both candidates made a point of declaring their unquestioned support for their no.1 ally and friend in the Middle East, Israel. Biden, once only, allowed for the possibility of a "2-state...

When the Jews rebelled against the Roman Empire in AD 70, Titus the emperor destroyed Jerusalem. From then the Jews stood apart from other peoples in two important aspects. One was that in general they did not intermarry and assimilate with the other peoples of the region. The other was their...

Palestinians are hoping to get their own state recognised by the UN. The only country with veto power that has said that they would use it is US. Even though Obama and Bush before both stated that they would back a state bid by Palestine. So why this double standard?
