Latin America? What's going on?

After Brazil and Uruguay, Argentina announced today the recognition of the "Palestinian state". A "state" without institutions, elites and where the elected rulers are Hamas. 
What is the explanation? The post-WWII and post-Cold War headaches ? And, most importantly, will it be other states doing the same - Venezuela, Peru, Colombia? Is this move aimed to press an eventual discussion in the UN and, even more than that? I can understand the move, but the costs will be impressive for the whole region.

Good for them for recognising Palestine. I don't know what good it will do the Palestinians, but it might lead to more recognition.

What is the point of recognizing a "state" which is not a state? Recognition of what? Of pure
rhetorics?
