French lawmakers vote in favor of recognizing Palestinian state

French lawmakers voted in favour of recognizing Palestine as a state on Tuesday, a symbolic move that will not immediately affect France’s diplomatic stance but demonstrates growing European impatience with a stalled peace process.

The motion, which echoes similar votes in Britain, Spain and Ireland, received the backing of 339 lawmakers with 151 voting against.

    France, Allahu akbar.

    Israel in turn to vote to recognize the Muslim states within France, i.e. those areas with intense cultural enrichment featuring nightly car-b-cues.

  • The French already have 751 “no go-zones” within France.

    This is just another. But the liberal politicians like pigs with lipstick.

    I think they did it to keep the musies from rioting again.

    Delusional. There has been a two-state solution since 1922: Jordan and Israel.

      Because that worked out so well.

      Listen. The only realistic peaceful settlement of the dispute over the Holy Land would involve the Arabs accepting the part starting six feet under the ground.

    French is all that be said.

    Its a good thing the Frenchies have nothing more pressing to concern themselves with, like say, their economy in the crapper, riots in the streets, that sort of thing.
    Oh, and how *do* you say “Judenhaas” in French?
