What elections? World presses ahead on Palestine question as Israel prepares for poll

The European Parliament in Brussels, the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg and signatories to the Fourth Geneva Convention meeting in Geneva will take up various aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Wednesday as the world shows it will not wait until after the Israeli election to deal with the issue.

While Israel will be slammed at the meeting in Geneva, matters could be much worse at the European Parliament, where a resolution will be voted on that does not call for the recognition of a Palestinian state, but rather for negotiations leading to a two-state solution.

In Luxembourg, the European Court of Justice is expected to ask the European governments to provide it with additional evidence to support having Hamas on the EU’s list of terrorist organizations, where it has been since 2003.

In France, meanwhile, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said after meeting with an Arab League delegation and separately with former president Shimon Peres that there was an urgency to find a way to bring the conflict to an end.
