Many European countries are bound to recognize Palestinian state exactly like Sweden recently ,saying it is the only way to encourage the two parties to negotiate seriously to reach lasting peace agreement .
Palestinians welcome warmly such move from Europe as a way to pressure Israel to move in earnest toward peace and freeze once for all settlements especially in Palestinian territory occupied and annexed in 1967 .
During the last summer Israel had attacked savagely Palestinians in Gaza killing up to two thousand civilians ,most of them are children ,even at hospital and school using unfortunately sophisticated weapons !!!,coming especially from USA and Europe .
The only way for Europe to expiate their crimes perpetrated against Palestinians is to recognize them as a viable state but also to impose stiff sanctions on war criminals in Israel in order to curb them from thinking and daring to attack civilians without paying the price for their horrid crimes.
