    'Unilaterally reconcognising E/Jerusalem, part of a capital city of a nation, as capital of another new "nation" by a country or person is, as someone said somewhere here, a declaration of war.' Except that the EU is not doing that. They are remembering that E J'sem was an Arab municipality until 1967, when Israel 'unilaterally' and ILLEGALLY annexed it. We can't have countries running around illegally annexing their neighbours' territory, can we, or about 192 wars would break out over the globe tomorrow morning. That's why the UN Charter and GC4 established, post WW2, that it is prohibited to gain territory by war, nations can no longer legally do it. (For the chap who cites Karelia, Poland, etc, these were BEFORE the new international laws came into being, they belong in the 'ancient history' file).

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
