On October 30 Sweden decided to abrogate the agreed-upon Oslo Accords by granting “Palestine” recognition without the Palestinian regime having to fulfill a single one of its many obligations.
These legally binding obligations include:
- Cessation of racist indoctrination against Jews.
- Cessation of incitement to violence against Israel.
- A stop to Palestinian Arab terrorism.
- Recognition of the state of Israel within its agreed interim borders until a final-status agreement is reached through a negotiated settlement. The key word here is “negotiated”. Not unilateral, negotiated.
The new Left-wing Swedish government, a bunch of pitiful amateurs dabbling in statecraft and including hardened Islamists, extremists deported from Israel for violating anti-terror laws, an illegal Muslim immigrant, tax evaders, a gross violator of Sweden’s strict environmental laws (this is the Minister for the Environment!) and even one clairvoyant, decided that not one of the conditions of the Oslo Accords needed to be fulfilled by the Palestinian Arab coalition government.
