JNS.org – Former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar spoke out against unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state.

“The Palestinian state does not exist yet and the Gaza Strip is still controlled by Hamas, but many nations are already moving to recognize it,” he said, according to Israel Hayom. “The Swedish government announced it would recognize Palestine, the British Parliament voted to recognize it, and we should expect similar moves to be made throughout Europe. Regardless of good intentions, recognizing a Palestinian state is not appropriate, not helpful, and wrong. It will not promote peace and will only cause the Palestinians to back away from an agreed-upon solution.”
