Erkki Tuomioja Finland Finland and Israel



Strange that the Finnish political elite never have anything negative to say in public about these terrible Arab/Muslim regimes.

tuomioja shhh

They finally got what they wanted, the extremists in the Finnish government and in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, approved elevating the Palestinian Authority to embassy status. Dennis Mitzner comments:

Two weeks ago Tuomioja voiced strong support for Turkey’s EU membership while Turkey is becoming more authoritarian and Islamist under Erdogan. Today Tuomioja upgraded the PA’s diplomatic mission to the equivalent of an embassy. In other words, our foreign minister has no problem with Islamism which runs counter to Finnish values and legal system and takes no issue with Abbas’ refusal to negotiate with the Israeli government.

Denmark, Finland upgrade PA embassy status

Nordic countries state upgrade is not recognition of sovereign Palestinian state, meant to encourage negotiated peace.

Denmark and Finland announced on Saturday that they would upgrade the status of the Palestinian missions in Copenhagen and Helsinki, respectively, to be equivalent to embassies.

In a joint statement, the Nordic countries emphasized that the upgrade “does not entail a formal bilateral recognition of a sovereign Palestinian state.”

Danish Foreign Minister Villy Søvndal and Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja said the upgrade was a way to encourage Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas “to engage with determination in the necessary negotiations with the Israeli government on a two state solution.”

Abbas had many challenges to meet “before we can recognize Palestine as a state,” the two foreign ministers said. “It is important to keep focused on the aim of Palestine becoming a fully recognized state and as such claim its rightful place as part of the international community of states.”

The move gives Palestinian representatives in all Nordic countries the same working conditions as accredited diplomats serving in an embassy of a recognized state, according to the statement.

  1. Peace has been handed to the paleosimians several times and on a silver platter by Israel. It’s been obvious for decades the only peace the PA will accept is for Israel to be wiped out of existence and every Jewish Israeli to be kicked out or killed.
    If the idiot politicians can understand this, they will understand all they do is nothing more than vain posturing.

  2. I still have trouble understanding these Finnish politicians. They don’t really have any skin in the game. They have given millions to the Pals, and yet all those Pals consider them stupid infidels, useful idiots. It must be such an intense hatred of Jews that I don’t understand. Jews aren’t blowing up nonbelievers anywhere in the world.

    1. It’s nothing more than mealy mouth subservience to perceived bigger players in the international arena coupled with their self interests. >You’ll never ever see the Finnish government sticking its neck out on principle, other than last year holding out on the bank bail out for sweeter terms.

  3. Without Erkki “the Red” this would not have happened. Old Scruffy turns out to be one of Finland’s longest serving Foreign ministers. He is in that post, because his own party does not want him to lead the party and there needs to be something to keep him occupied.
