Israel suffered a stinging diplomatic setback on Wednesday when the International Police Organization (Interpol) voted to accept “Palestine” as a full member state.
The move at Interpol’s annual General Assembly meeting, held this year in Beijing, came despite furious Israeli efforts over the last few weeks to thwart it. The US was also actively involved up until the last minute in trying to stop the move.
Read all about it: Al Capone joins the FBI. Besides which, I always believed any police organisation worthy of the name was based on its ability to reveal truths through investigation. You don’t have to be Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple to discover that there is no such state as Palestine. However, it’s clear that Interpol deals in fiction, so anything goes.
