UN solidarity and mourning with the 'Palestinian people'

The United Nations General Assembly has embarked on two days of 'debates' to mark the passage of its 1947 resolution calling for 'Palestine' to be divided into two states, a Jewish one and an Arab one. The resolution was accepted by the Jews and rejected by the Arabs, who launched a war against the nascent Jewish state six months later in an attempt to drive the Jews into the Sea.

The General Assembly marks the day with mourning and solidarity with the 'Palestinian people,' the fools who could have had their own state 62 years ago (and even before then) if they had only had the courage to say "yes."

Israel used to boycott the session, but this year, Ambassador Gabriela Shalev (pictured) is planning to show up and slam the one-sidedness of the 'debate.' Good luck with that.
Israel has traditionally boycotted the debates due to their one-sidedness, but in recent years has changed its tune. Israel's ambassador to the UN, Gabriela Shalev, is scheduled to speak before the assembly Tuesday and condemn the UN tradition of memorializing the date on which Israel was given a state as a day of mourning.

The Palestinian Maan news agency reported that the Palestinian observer at the UN, Riyad Mansour, is expected to announce a "new diplomatic strategy" and ask the Security Council to define the 1967 borders as the new borders of a Palestinian state.

Last year the former president of the General Assembly, Miguel d'Escoto, accused Israel of apartheid during a speech before the UN.

The special debates are scheduled to begin Monday evening, and resolutions will be approved on the following day. Each year six of the 20 annual anti-Israel resolutions are passed by the November 29 assembly.

In addition, the UN will hold ceremonies and exhibitions on the Palestinian people and show a film on the subject.
Rumor has it that the exhibition on the 'Palestinian people' is up for the Nobel Prize for Fiction. Heh.

The Palestinians continue to remain the victims decades after they turned down statehood - which they don't want to this very day.

Its never been Israel that kept them from having their own country. But all that is lost in the annual Israel-bashing rite at the UN.

Next year, the world should start reciprocating.
