The European Parliament building in Strasbourg, France.

JNS.org European Parliament members on Tuesday declined to propose an initially planned motion that would have urged the European Union’s (EU) 28 member nations to recognize a unilaterally established Palestinian state.

Instead, the EU Parliament’s lawmakers proposed a resolution asking for the continuation of peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

Negotiators for the European People’s Party and the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, parties that together hold a majority of the EU Parliament seats, issued a resolution stating that the EU Parliament “supports in principle recognition of Palestinian statehood and the two-state solution, and believes these should go hand in hand with the development of peace talks, which should be advanced.”

A vote on the new resolution will take place Wednesday in Stasbourg, France.

    Zechariah 12:3,….in that day I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would attempt to heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. In that day , “says the Lord”, “I Will strike every every horse with confusion, and it’s rider with madness; I will open my eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the people who oppose them with blindness.
