Spot the Difference: The US stance on Palestine and Kosovo
So, the US says that Palestine independence can only come if/when Israel agrees to it. I can’t recall the US saying that Kosovan independence needed to have the approval of Serbia, can you?
Why the double standards, Mr Obama?
UPDATE: The Daily Mail reports:
Tony Blair yesterday condemned a ‘deeply confrontational’ move by the Palestinian president to ask the United Nations to recognise an independent state for his people.
I wonder if this is the same Tony Blair who was so enthusiastic about Kosovan independence.
