These famous Israeli authors want Europe to recognize a Palestinian state!Albawaba - Three famous authors – Amos Oz, David Grossman and A.B. Yehoshua – signed their names to a public petition with 878 signatures of Israelis that calls on European nations to recognize “Palestine” as a state. Among earlier signatories are Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman, former Knesset Speaker Avraham Burg and former Minister Yossi Sarid. The petition, along with a letter, was sent on Sunday to members of Ireland’s House of Commons, which is scheduled to vote on Wednesday on a nonbinding motion, already approved by its upper house, in favor of a Palestinian state. The same letter was also sent to members of the Danish parliament, which is scheduled to hold a similar vote on Thursday of this week. Letters will also be sent to the Belgian parliament and the European Union Parliament, which are also voting on the matter this month. The letter states: “We citizens of Israel who wish it to be a safe and thriving country are worried by the continued political stalemate and by the occupation and settlements activities which lead to further confrontations with the Palestinians and torpedo the chances for a compromise. (...) Your initiative for recognizing the state of Palestine will advance the prospects of peace and will encourage Israelis and Palestinians to bring an end to their conflict.” ak 9/12/2014
