UN to Mourn 60 Years of Israelís Existence (NOVEMBER 24th)
http://www.israpundit.com/2008/?p=5818 ^ | Nov 21, 2008 | Anne Bayefsky

NEW YORK - 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 EYEontheUN.org.

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 EYEontheUN.org. She continued, “the UN tradition of mourning the creation of the state of Israel continues.”

Do we get to be sorry for helping to birth the UN?

Hey, all you Jews! Make sure you cast your votes for Obama in 2012 early so America can join with the UN against Israel, that is if Israel still exists after Barry allows Iran to nuke it! What are you people, suicidal or insane or both!?

1948.... That was before dozens of Islam-dominated nations had joined the UN and before the UN had become nothing more than a pitful propaganda society for America-haters, Jew-haters, and Freedom-haters.... all subsidized by billions of American tax dollars of course.

Terrible. There will be war, I think, between Israel and the Arab states. America will sit on the sidelines and just talk a good game because that’s what Barry does.

If the UN can have a World Day of Mourning for Israel’s very existence...

Then I declare January 21st to be a National Day of Mourning to commemorate the day a Marxist, apostate Muslim, and foreign-born politician was installed as President.

Well, the U.N. in it's free and clean prime was not only adamant but forceful in guaranteeing the existence of the state of Israel.

The movie "Exodus" comes to mind.

These day's?

U.N. out of the U.S.!

There will be war,...

As long as there are at least two people on the face of the earth, I agree.

I really thought this was an article from the Onion, util I read the above sentence.

This is a satire, right?

None of this is true, I hope.

Ugh! Reading this makes me so angry. I think a better location for the UN would be smack dab in the middle of Mogadishu. We need to inform the inhabitants of that sewer they call the UN building, we need the office space. Go somewhere else and take all your scummy Amercia hating 3rd world turds with you.

I have never understood why a race of people have constantly supported a party that has actively worked for their destruction.

I like the idea of giving the UN 48 hours to vacate the premises and afterward, fumigate the place, take the toxic materials out of the buildings and then demolish it. Then the land can be used for housing.
