Margot Wallstrom, the outspoken anti-Israel Swedish Foreign Minister is at it again. This time she sent out the following tweet as she left a meeting in Ramallah:
Returning from Palestine. Action is needed to save the two state solution. Settlements and demolitions thwart conditions and hope for peace.

And then there is this one:

Of course Wallstrom is not new to the anti-Israel camp. 2 years ago she accused Israel of executing “Palestinians” without trial. She has continuously attacked Jews living in Judea and Samaria as “obstacles to peace” while ignoring terror attacks carried out by Arab terrorists against Jews in Israel.
With Sweden taking the reigns at the UN Security Council after January 1st Wallstrom is more than ready to take aim at Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
“We discussed our (upcoming) presidency,” Wallstrom said after meetings in Ramallah with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki, according to the Swedish Expressen newspaper. “We hope that it will be possible for the Security Council to adopt a resolution on the settlements.”
All of this would be typical of the EU and many of its more anti-Israel members. In most years these statements and votes barely cause a yawn, but with Obama looking to make some sort of world changing impact before he leaves office in 33 days, abstaining from a Swedish resolution that would in effect delineate the final borders of Israel is all too possible. If the resolution passes Wallstrom will become the mother of Palestine. A mantle she will cherish.
