Portugal: Parliament voted in favour of Nakba solidarity motion

Portugal has been for many years in the grip of an economic crisis which has resulted in massive poverty (one million elderly people survive on €280 per month).and more than two million Portuguese have left the country. But politicians seem to get their priorities right: Israel-bashing.

Pro-Israel activist Romeu Monteiro @ Facebook:
I just saw a member of the Portuguese Parliament from the Socialist Party point out in parliamentary debate that Israel was invaded by all its neighboring countries in 1948 and that people on both sides were harmed, Not just Palestinians.

Still his party voted in favor of the Nakba solidarity motion from the radical left that was being discussed. Even the right-wing parties abstained instead of voting against it.
