“It will become a Taliban state”: Theo Francken does not want recognition of Palestine

New European countries, such as Spain, Norway and Ireland, have committed to recognizing Palestine from this Tuesday, May 28 and have attracted the wrath of Israel. Concerning Belgium, the Kern meeting of May 22 did not lead to effective recognition of a Palestinian state. However, Belgium continues to work towards the prospect of a two-state solution and hopes to be able to move in this direction by bringing together a large group of European countries. “The recognition will be part of a process but a process with many countries, with the objective of calling for an end to violence in the coming days”explained Prime Minister Alexander De Croo.

An eventuality which does not seem to delight Theo Francken, who was present on the VRT set during a debate with Raoul Hedebouw. “Recognize Palestine? What does that mean ? It will be a Taliban state. Who will lead this? Hamas!”, he assured.

To the PTB president’s assertion that a genocide is taking place in Gaza, the N-VA MP is equally inflexible. “There is no genocide. The International Criminal Court did not refer to Article 7, only Article 6. So stop that, it’s not even true. There is a war, with far too many civilian casualties, and a ceasefire is absolutely essential. And the Israeli government’s settlement policy in the West Bank must end. Much tougher action must be taken against this. I am not incompetent for Israel. But this is an extremely complex conflict. And I understand that Israel is saying that recognizing Palestine means that Hamas will be in charge, with a Sharia regime right on the border with Israel”, says Theo Francken.
