Latin American country recognizes imaginary 'state'

She must have found Uncle Abu charming. Argentina's Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has announced that her country will recognize the imaginary 'state of 'Palestine.'
Rabbo said Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner confirmed in a phone call to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday that her country would recognize an independent Palestine within the 1967 borders.

Kirchner also said that her recognition was not just a political gesture but a moral stand.

Abed Rabbo said he believed the recognition of Brazil and Argentina would encourage many other countries to follow in their footsteps. Brazil announced its official recognition last Friday, November 24, in a letter from Brazilian President Ignacio Lula da Silva to Abbas.

For their part, the Israeli foreign ministry and several American congressmen condemned Brazil for the action, and similar recriminations are likely to be directed at Argentina.
Kirchner is a protege of Hugo Chavez. But don't hold your breath waiting for Obama to object. What could go wrong?

Interesting that the 3 countries are those where the "triangle" of Hezbollah, Hamas, Al Qaeda etc. are active.

i'm very, very ashamed to be Argentinean.
I was thinking that there was nothing else this "clowns" we have as government would do to make us more ashamed of ourselves.
obviously i was mistaken.
it's hard what i'm going to say (specially being Argentinean and jewish),
but in my opinion, Israel should stop relation with my country and Brasil. Israel must expell the ambassadors from this countries, and close the (Israel) embassy here. The reallity (here in Argentina) proves that in most cases the jewish community doesn't care about what happen to Israel.

These acts of recognition run counter to statements by Brazil and Argentina in the United Nations Security Council in 1967 in favor of freely negotiated borders between the parties and an internationally sponsored peace negotiation process as set out in Resolution 242.
