BRAZIL RECOGNIZES PALESTINE STATE


854254

[Update 06 December 2010: AFP reports "Argentina, Uruguay to recognize Palestine."]

Andrew Sullivan comments:

It's a powerful endorsement of a new nation state in the Middle East, based on the 1967 borders - and a recognition, perhaps, that negotiating with the Israelis is about as fruitless as negotiating with Republicans. I hope the current talks can gain momentum, but if Netanyahu really digs in and settlements continue, I suspect more and more countries will start doing this. And if the Obama administration's patience runs out, I see no reason why the US shouldn't too.
