    PARIS (AP) — France announced Tuesday that it plans to vote in favor of recognizing a Palestinian state at the U.N. General Assembly this week.

    With the announcement, France becomes the first major European country to come out in favor, dealing a setback to Israel. The timing of the announcement appears aimed at swaying other European nations.

    Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told parliament that France has long supported Palestinian ambitions for statehood and "will respond `Yes'" when the issue comes up for a vote "out of a concern for coherency."

    The Palestinians say the assembly is likely to vote Thursday on a resolution raising their status at the U.N. from an observer to a nonmember observer state, a move they believe is an important step toward a two-state solution with Israel. A Palestinian state would still not be a full General Assembly member, however.

    Unlike the Security Council, there are no vetoes in the General Assembly

    So what! Israel would recognize an Independent Palestinian state, if the Palestinians didn't sabotage and do everything they could to prevent one. In reality they don't want to achieve independence, because they could have had it a LONG time ago. With independence comes accountability! Fighting a terrorist war is much easier than leading a nation. Just as the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, as their economy sinks to new low under the current douche bag!

    Good god..... The 67 Borders that the Arabs NEVER recognized or respected? THOSE Borders? lol The 67 Borders that could have been part of the " Palestinian State?" THOSE borders? " Right of Return" eventually making the Jews a minority and eventually over a long period of time actually being an annexation of the " Palestinian State" and Jews being VERBOTEN to even set foot in the " Palestinian State?"

    I love the " Code Words" people use. We hear about " negotiations"; Yet if Israel is expected to make ALL the concessions there is nothing to " negotiate" is there? Tell me again..... What EXACTLY are the Palestinians doing to " negotiate"? The answer is " nothing" You are the one who is ignorant.
