in case you haven't noticed, the handwriting is on the wall. these two countries aren't the only ones in europe who are open to this idea; and the governments of the rest won't be able to ignore the predominance of public opinion for much longer...especially once others begin pushing the concept. it's time that israel comes to terms with the inevitable, instead of continuing to alienate itself by resisting it while it further entrenches itself into a situation that's going to be extremely painful to extricate itself from when that time comes. the second biggest foreign relations mistake israel ever made was it occupations, while the BIGGEST one was its settlement enterprises inside the territories it occupied. but the gigs up, and what's reported here is just the beginning, not just some meaningless ramblings. its a manifestation of an almost universal sentiment that grows stronger almost daily, and is based on the enlightened notions of fairness, justice and human rights.
