Three European countries, Spain, Norway and Ireland, announced on Wednesday that they would officially recognize the existence of the Palestinian state from May 28.

There is something new in this decision and it is a breakunderlines Elias Sanbar, writer and former Palestinian ambassador to theUNESCO.

This is the first time that three important European countries have taken the plungehe adds.

He explains that this is not the same approach as during the negotiations in Oslo in 1993. They do not recognize the need for negotiations; they recognize the fact that there is a Palestinian state and that from now on, if we negotiate, it is so that it is fully in control of its sovereignty, its territory and its borderssays the author.

His most recent book, The last war? : Palestine, 7 october 2023 – 2 april 2024, was published on May 19. It exposes the origins of the opposition between Palestinian and Israeli societies since 1948, which led to the war of recent months.

It confronts the other partners of the European Union with their responsibilitieshe believes. : “We do not recognize [l’État palestinien].””,”text”:”It’s going to become a lot more complicated for others to say: “We don’t recognize [l’État palestinien].””}}”>It will become much more complicated for others to say: “We do not recognize [l’État palestinien].”

We are in a rather crucial moment.

Exit door very distant

Elias Sanbar insists that the war crime committed by Hamas on October 7 was followed by a hundred others by Israel. The impasse is therehe maintains. The exit door actually seems very far away.

It is obvious that this is an extremely explosive, very difficult and humanly unbearable situation.he says about the Gaza Strip.

He believes the time has come for Israel’s allies to advise the Jewish state to stop this dream of imperial power and of begin to access a notion, that of sharing.

In his opinion, this sharing is the two-state solution.

It’s time for Israel’s friends to say to it: “Listen, after a century, you see that your method doesn’t work, so don’t you want to try doing something else?”
