Annual Event ~ UN and Palestinian People To Mourn 60 Years of Israel’s Existence

UN to Mourn 60 Years of Israel’s Existence

by Anne Bayefsky

Eye on the U.N.


This Monday, November 24th, the UN will commemorate its annual International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People with a film depicting Jews as Nazi-equivalents and a public exhibit mourning the sixty years of Israel’s existence.

“The event is an annual reminder that the UN’s real agenda is to delegitimize the birth - and the perseverance - of the state of Israel,” said Anne Bayefsky, Editor of

Monday’s observance marks November 29, 1947 - the day that the UN voted to establish a Jewish and an Arab state in Palestine - a decision accepted by the Jews and rejected by the Arabs.

This year’s observance is being held a week early due to scheduling conflicts.

As in years past, there will be a formal meeting Monday morning of the Committee on the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, a film, an afternoon meeting of the General Assembly on the “Question of Palestine,” and the opening of a public exhibit in the entrance to the UN’s New York headquarters.

Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan referred to November 29th as “a day of mourning and a day of grief,” and the usual procedure is for UN member state after UN member state to use the opportunity to grieve for the suffering of the Palestinian people at Israeli hands.

The General Assembly is scheduled to adopt another six resolutions condemning only Israel for violations of human rights.

The total number of resolutions criticizing Israel expected to be adopted at this fall’s General Assembly is 20, as compared to only four resolutions critical of human rights records in any of the remaining 191 UN member nations.

The 2008 installment of what is in essence a repeat of the “Zionism = Racism” allegation, will be the public showing of the film “La Terre Parle Arabe” or “The Land Speaks Arabic.” The film draws parallels between the Nazis’ final solution and the alleged Zionist design for Palestinians. It is commonly billed with these words: “…the late-19th century Zionists…drew up plans, put them into practice, then…used… force, often brutal.”

Here is some of the script for the UN public’s edification:

“Christians and Muslims alike…unite in their hatred of Zionism…I preferred to die as a martyr rather than be governed by the Jews …We were against the Jews…The number of Jews increased constantly…The children cried …The Hagana had no mercy, no pity. Zionists! They were Zionists!… The Jews were shooting at us, they were facing us…The Jews yelled “turn around you bastards, you dogs.” They machine gunned us…They started killing people who were asleep…[We]…found a poor woman…pregnant. They had killed her and the baby came out of the womb. They started slaughtering them until morning.”

The exhibit to be opened at 6 p.m. on Monday in the UN lobby - the public entrance through which school children from across the United States and tourists from around the world pass every day - is entitled “The Palestinians: 60 years of struggle and enduring hope.” Bayefsky comments:

“The “sixty years” of struggle is telling. It puts a lie to the alleged root cause of the Arab-Israeli conflict as an “occupation” that began with the 1967 war. The real complaint is the alleged wrong of the creation of the State of Israel itself.” She adds: “The carefully selected word “struggle” also speaks volumes. What the UN glorifies as a struggle is a series of wars launched by Arabs to annihilate the state of Israel beginning in 1948, and the ongoing “struggle” of Palestinian and other Arab terrorists dedicated to the same end.”

Past UN Palestinian Solidarity Day observances have included:

1. The display of a map in Arabic with the State of Israel missing altogether
2. Flying only the flags of “Palestine” and the United Nations, and omitting the flag of the UN member state of Israel
3. Opening the day with a moment of silence commemorating the death, among others, of suicide bombers or “all those who have given their lives for the cause of the Palestinian people…”
4. Exhibits promoting terrorism and the alleged right of return while criticizing a host of non-violent efforts by Israel to prevent terrorism from checkpoints to a security fence - all of which are invariably presented as evil steps taken in a vacuum.

“Anyone hoping to see an Israeli flag flown in addition to a Palestinian one in celebration of the UN partition plan that approved a two-state solution, should not hold their breath,” said Anne Bayefsky, Editor of She continued, “the UN tradition of mourning the creation of the state of Israel continues.”

Wild Thing's comment........

This is so sick, I didn't know about this and I sure as heck did not know it was a freaking annual event.

The second our country allowed for the UN to be on our soil was the day our country began to sell out to EVIL!!!

Looko at this it was mentioned in the article and I found in in Google.


This is the prominent UN public display which was used to mark the commemoration of "International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People" on November 29, 2005. The Palestinian flag is on one side. The UN flag is on the other side. A map without the UN member state of Israel stands between them.

This map was prominently displayed by the UN on November 29, 2005 at a public gathering at UN Headquarters, in the presence of all top three UN officials, the Secretary General, and the Presidents of the UN Security Council and the General Assembly. It purports to be a "map of Palestine." Israel, a UN member state for 56 years, is not on the map. Even the UN General Assembly partition lines of November 29, 1947 marking a Jewish and Arab state, which pre-date this 1948 map, do not appear.

As the "map of Palestine" without the state of Israel stands in the background, Secretary-General Kofi Annan addresses the public meeting at UN Headquarters. The anniversary of the UN partition vote that survivors of the concentration camps celebrated, has been described by Secretary-General Annan as "a day of mourning and a day of grief." Palestinians, and Arab citizens more generally, refer to it as part of "Al-Nakba," meaning the "catastrophe" of the creation of the state of Israel.

The Un should be kicked off of American soil. The US should cut back on funding. Perhaps they should set up their headquarters in Somalia.

Israel is a name that means "he struggles with God." God gave the name 'ISRAEL' to Jacob after he fought with an angel of God - Genesis 32:22-32.
God bless His chosen ones and America, allies through Armagedon!

Everyone thinks Israeal should give up land to the 'Palestinians'. Hey, why not Saudi Arabia give up some land for their fellow mooslim brothers. Of all the Arab land over there the Jews have about 1%. Now they are suppose to give up some more to appease obama and the the rest of the UN thugs.

The UN (Useless Nations) is as meaningful and effective as was the League of Nations. Hopefully, it will be condemned to the same fate.

And what's even sadder is that the Israelites and the Palestinians are brothers. They come from two brothers. Their father was tricked by their mother to give the birthrite to the younger son, whom she favored over the older.
The UN has become nothing but a bunch of hypocritical village idiots.

When the Roman legions under Hadrian wiped out Jerusalem, Hadrian renamed the area PALESTINE to insult the Jews and purge them and their heritage from the maps at that time. Palestine NEVER ever belonged to the arabs....NEVER!

Posted by: darthcrUSAderworldtour07 at November 24, 2008 04:20 PM

Never mind about PALESTINE how do we get the scumm out of the land the Rockafellers gave them for UN headquarters?
Hadrian was one of the smartest men to every lead Rome. That he wanted to under cut the Israelites who caused him trouble is clear. I propose that we refer to the west bank as Hadrian's Curse.

Bob A., interesting that the terrorists did not even toufh that place the UN on 9-11. That should tell us how much they know the UN is on their side.

Darth, thank you, I pray we always stay a friend to Israel. And I pray we kick the UN out and then bomb the building and get rid of it for good.

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 24, 2008 06:50 PM

Mark,good idea. Your right Mark it is to appease and that does not make it the right thing to do.

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 24, 2008 06:54 PM

Les, I would love it condemned and not to exist anywhere especially not on our soil.

What a day that would be to have it shut down, emptied out and then emploded.

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 24, 2008 06:57 PM

Lynn, your right about the story about the brothers. They have hated each other since then. And I am not sure where it is but God told the Jews to wipe out the sons of Ishmael I think it is.

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 24, 2008 07:02 PM

Darth thank you for that about Hadrian.

Posted by: Wild Thing at November 24, 2008 07:04 PM

Avitar, I wish I knew how it could be done. The last I heard the UN is even behind in the rent they owe our country for being on our land. GRRRRRR
