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

Posted on 11/23/2008 5:29:43 PM PST by Blogger

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.”

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.!

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.

Heck, from articles I’ve read from leftist Israeli papers, it seems that even some Israelis don’t even care about Israel’s continued existence.

Straight UN Facts

UN member states - democratic?

Number of UN member states that are full-fledged democracies or "fully free" according to Freedom House: 89

Number of UN member states: 192

Percentage of UN member states which are full-fledged democracies: 46%

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.

In a moment which has been crafted to include the commemoration of suicide-bombers (from left to right) Nasser Al-Kidwa, Foreign Minister of the Palestinian Authority, President of the UN Security Council Andrey Denisov, President of the UN General Assembly Jan Eliasson, Chairman of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People Paul Badji, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, (and two others) rise at the outset of the November 29th UN meeting with these words from the Chair. "I invite everyone present to rise and observe a minute of silence in memory of all those who have given their lives for the cause of the Palestinian people and the return of peace between Israel and Palestine."

Yes, no kidding - we should’ve withdrawn from the (sinister) UN long ago.

regarding the earlier poster - “”The film draws parallels between the Nazis’ final solution and the alleged Zionist design for Palestinians.””

What the h*** has this world come to??? The above is such an obscene thing to say.

I tell you what, it was a real delight to watch 24 tonight and see a UN worker portrayed as a wishy-washy terrorist sympathizer who

1. after being asked to help school kids with his UN truck, stated that “the United Nations remains neutral in such matters,”
2. which prompted Jack Bauer say “why don’t you go hide in the shelter with the OTHER children?”
3. after which he DID,
4. then he ran away in his UN truck,
5. was quickly snagged by murdering rebels, who smacked him in the mouth a bit,
6. which prompted him to give up the location of said school kids.

It was the most beautifully accurate portrayal of reality I’ve ever seen, in a way that one never sees from the mainstream media, who are supposed to report the facts and hardly ever do - United Nations, excellent case in point. Art imitates life, indeed.

I would guess the ones that don’t have connections to Israel, don’t care about it. The ones that do, like those that immigrated here, children of Israelis, especially those that had family die during the Holocaust, may care greatly about Israel.

My opinion, we need Israelis to stand up and make their voices heard, rather than the lack of any noise from those without connections to Israel.

What a great ideal. How odd I didn’t know that the UN was going to do this on Monday. For some reason 2 weeks ago I downloaded the song. I believe that Israel National Anthem
“Hatikvah” is such a beautiful song that when I hear it, it brings me to shedding a tear. When I hear it, I hear
Pain, but Determination, Sacrifice, Strength and Courage.

The UN is comprised of nothign but tools of Satan- The UN will most probably usher in the end times in an attempt to eradicate Israel- they are ‘testing hte waters’ to see how far they can go before hte world speaks up and complains- and apparently, they aren’t running into any serious opposition or condemnation, and you can bet they are goign to push even further-

Palestine, who isn’t even a nation, was allowed a seat in UN negotiations on issues involving Israel, while Israel, a legitimate nation, was NOT allowed a seat? Again- Screw the UN. Right before the end times, Israel should concentrate the majority of their offensive defences on the UN, then rush back to Israel to defend THEIR land!

1) The U-effing-N can kindly go and kiss my Gentile Zionist tailpipe.

2) The USA and Israel need to get out of the U-effing-N yesterday.

3) The USA needs to kick the U-effing-N out of NYC, raze the building, and cover the spot with a parking lot. The U-effing-N can relocate its sad self to a more suitable location, say Tripoli, Khartoum, Mogadishu, Tehran, Pyongyang, or the entrance to Hell.
