Times of Israel headline: First to recognize Palestine, Swedish government falls

Actually, over 100 countries had recognised Palestine before Sweden. The article is more precise, and says it is the first "major EU country" to recognise Palestine. So much for Hiungary, Czech republic, Slovakia, and a few others. Of course, some of their governments have probably fallen since as well.

Heh. Actually that did not feature at all. Immigration, taxes, education, what have you not, has been different reasons for the opposition to vote down the budget, but I have not heard Palestine mentioned.

More like: So weak it might fail, must get something done that the cabinet can do on its own. So recognise Palestine.
