  • Israel recalls ambassadors over European recognition of Palestine
  • Ireland, Norway, and Spain acknowledge Palestinian statehood, angering Israel
  • Recognition seen as step toward two-state solution for peace

Subsequently, Israel’s foreign minister instructed his country’s ambassadors in Norway and Ireland to return home immediately, asserting that Wednesday’s decision serves as a warning to the world that “terrorism pays.

Israel has recalled its ambassadors from two of the European nations in response to the official recognition of Palestine as a separate state by Ireland, Norway, and Spain.

Speaking on Wednesday, Irish Prime Minister Simon Harris declared, “Today, Norway and Spain are announcing that we acknowledge the state of Palestine. We will take the necessary national steps to implement this decision.”

I am optimistic that additional nations will join us in this significant step in the upcoming weeks.

The Irish government contends that recognition is necessary for a two-state solution, which it deems essential for establishing enduring peace in the region. This region has been the focal point of Israel’s offensive against Hamas since October.

Mr. Harris continued, “It is a declaration of unwavering endorsement of a two-state solution, the sole credible route to peace and security for the peoples of Israel, Palestine, and Israel.”

Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Norway’s Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide announced that they would acknowledge a Palestinian state as of May 28, shortly following Mr Harris’s statement in Dublin.

Mr Sanchez asserted that it was evident that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu does not have a peace project for Palestine, despite the legitimacy of the struggle against the terrorist organization Hamas.

In addition, Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store stated, “There is no peace in the Middle East if there is no recognition.”

“The Norwegian government leader stated that the terror was perpetrated by Hamas and militant groups that are not in favour of the state of Israel and a two-state solution.”

An independent state is a fundamental freedom of Palestine.

“Terrorism is profitable.”

Following the announcement, Israel’s foreign minister directed the ambassadors from Norway and Ireland to return home promptly.

In a post on X, Israel Katz stated, “Today’s decision sends a message to the Palestinians and the world: Terrorism pays.

He stated that the recognition could impede efforts to return Israel’s captives, who are currently being held in Gaza, and reduce the likelihood of a ceasefire by rewarding the jihadists of Hamas and Iran.

“Take a step towards financial freedom – claim your free Webull shares now!”

He also stated that Israel will not remain mute in the presence of those who are undermining its sovereignty and endangering its security.

As a result of Israeli forces’ assaults on the northern and southern borders of Gaza, which have resulted in the displacement of hundreds of thousands of individuals, the flow of aid has been restricted, and the likelihood of famine in the enclave has increased.

The Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, approved the recognition of a Palestinian state and encouraged other nations to emulate it.

In a statement that the official Wafa news agency published, Mr Abbas stated that the decision would establish “the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination” and that he is in favour of the pursuit of a two-state solution with Israel.
