Zweden werd onlangs het eerste EU-land in West-Europa dat Palestina als staat erkende. Op 27 november wordt er over een resolutie gestemd met betrekking tot de erkenning van Palestina als staat. Zou een dergelijke stap het geweld in de regio helpen bezweren? We spraken met Martina Anderson (GUE/NGL), voorzitter van de delegatie voor de betrekkingen met de Palestijnse Wetgevende Raad, en met christendemocraat Fulvio Martusciello, voorzitter van de delegatie voor de betrekkingen met Israël.
