Slovenia is expected to recognize the state of Palestine in the coming weeks in response to U.S. President Donald Trumps recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital, senior officials in Jerusalem told Israels Channel 10 News on Sunday.
According to those officials, three other European countries are considering the same move.
About a week ago, according to the report, the Slovenian government convened to promote the recognition of Palestine as a state, and the Slovenian government passed the issue to parliament, which is the body authorized to recognize other countries. On January 31, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Slovenian Parliament is expected to hold a first vote on the subject, and a vote in the plenum is scheduled for some time in February.
The Foreign Ministry is trying to recruit members of parliament in Slovenia to oppose the move, but it is believed that the decision will pass and Slovenia will recognize Palestine as a state.
Senior officials in Jerusalem told Channel 10 News that in addition to Slovenia, at least three other countries in the EU are considering the same step: Luxembourg, Ireland and Belgium.

By Tuesday or Wednesday, Melania Trump will be asked her opinion on this, since it’s from Slovenia.
And what have the Palescumians done on behalf of Slovenia? Or for any country?
I expect more and more will jump on board. All leading up to this day.
Daniel 9:27 King James Version (KJV)
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the de
This silly notion of recognizing a "nation" which has no borders or legitimate elected government will get them nowhere but orders are orders: they will comply.
Melania needs to make one phone call this morning to end this outrage
Is Slovenia a real country?
If you'd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Good for Slovenia.
Melania’s homeland doesn’t deserve this. Wait until they start using the embassy as a bomb factory and arms depot, and the nitro goes off before it can be made into dynamite.
It’s no longer a part of Yugoslavia, Igoslavia, or Weallgoslavia, so I guess it must be.
It’s totes a real country.
Their official motto is “Slovenia, Slovenia, note that we are not the same as Slovakia”
That won out over the runner-up: “Come visit our beautiful coastline.”
I’d call it a mistake by Slovenia. Belgium can’t be taken seriously. Google “Belgian health minister”— pretty well sums it up...
“Is Slovenia a real country?”
That being said, it’s ridiculous that they would recognize a country that has never existed, doesn’t have its own culture, or language, and is made up of Arabs who invaded and occupied what had been part of historic Israel.

One thing all three had in common was that they were not Muslims. Also that it would not have occurred to them to self-identify as "Palestinian." If asked they would have answered "Christian" or "Roman."
