Thailand to continue support for both Palestine and Israel

BANGKOK, 22 July 2014 (NNT) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has reiterated that there will be no change in Thailand’s foreign policy on Israel and Palestine following the newly erupted violence between the two countries.


Cross-border fighting has continued unabated, with Israeli strikes leaving at least 570 Palestinians dead. Seven Israeli soldiers also were killed Monday in clashes with Palestinian militants, which raised the overall Israeli death toll to 27, including two civilians.

Permanent-Secretary for Foreign Affairs Sihasak Phuangketkaew said Thailand will continue to have relations with Israel and Palestine but will not condone terrorist activities in either of the country.

Thailand, along with the international community, is urging Hamas and the Israeli government to resume peace dialogue amid the increasing number of lives lost.

Mr. Sihasak added that the Thai government currently has no plan to evacuate Thai nationals from Israel but is closely monitoring the situation.

israel and Palestine/ie..Hamas need to follow the Thai model. They need to implement military dictatorship to restore happiness and stop dissent. It's easy to see that Thailand knows how to do this.

No doubt pressure was brought to bear on Thailand by Israels second state the U.S.A. so as to influence the two faced stance that Thailand has taken, indeed somewhat reminisce of the 1939-1945 era is it not .

What did you expect them to do?

Fly the air force in to keep the peace.

How exactly are Thailand supporting them?

Keeping the visa regs the same is supporting another nation? cheesy.gif

Israel has but the one state. Also, the power of the U.S. influence on Thailand is questionable considering recent Thai history.

Israel should certainly not exist as a state but since it does it is entitled to defend itself. Such is the frequency of indiscriminate missiles being launched into Israel that it doesn't even make Israeli national news unless someone dies or is injured. Months and months go by with thousands of missiles being lobbed toward them and they do nothing but when they do they are accused of being heavy handed. Seems to me that the best way forward would be for every indiscriminate launched one way an indiscriminate missile should be launched back and may the best man win.

For those interested, here is a roughly historically accurate 3.5 minute video of the promised land...

Thailand may if it chooses support both and thus sit on the fence but IMO they would be much better off supporting neither. If the Kingdom can sort out the issues in their own south (they can't) then perhaps they can start to punch above their weight but until then, stay out of it.

Nothing will bring peace to the area known as the promised land until the parties of God have it taken out of their hands and that is not going to happen within even a new-born's lifetime.

"Thailand is definitely not supportive of the terrorist organization Hamas aspirations to take over Israel."

I don't think it is supportive of the terrorist government of Israel to take over Palestine either.

Terrorist definition - a person who employs terror or terrorism, esp as a political weapon. - Sounds like a good description of the Tel Aviv governent, (funded by US taxpayers) as well as Hamas don't you think?

Looking at the maps below, who's taking who ever here?

The 1947 deal brokered by the UN was a travesty but what has happened since are just crimes.
