Carl Bildt on Twitter is proving to everyone that friendly nations have interesting border solutions…
I added the first two to set up the idea behind his tweets, that good neighbors can come up with the most interesting of solutions to solve what might seem intractable situations. Here’s the main one that caught my eye.
So clearly the former Swedish FM/PM is lauding the mutual cooperation between Swedes and Finns, Belgians and the Dutch that lead to interesting solutions. So why is it that when acting as Sweden’s FM, he insisted that Jews building homes in their ancestral homeland would: “drive a wedge between the northern and southern flanks of the West Bank.” Going on further he states:
“What the Israelis did on E1 has shifted opinions in Europe,” Bildt said as he arrived for the meeting. “I don’t think the Israelis are aware of this.”
Carl Bildt is unwittingly proving the Israeli position, which has been all along that Jewish homes and communities in Judea and Samaria are not a problem, if there is good will, then a way will be found to accommodate both sides. There’s only one side’s government insisting upon 100% contiguous borders, the P.A., in fact the Arabs insist upon a Jew free area entirely.
Unwittingly, Carl Bildt proves Israel’s case.
