United Nations Adopts Resolution Calling Israel’s Founding a ‘Catastrophe’
Breitbart ^ | 12/01/2022 | DEBORAH BRAND

Posted on 12/01/2022 4:02:09 PM PST by DFG

The UN General Assembly this week passed a resolution to characterize the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948 as a “catastrophe,” in what has been heralded as a major victory for pro-Palestinian activists.

The word “Nakba,” which means catastrophe or disaster in Arabic, was also a term coined by the Palestinians to commemorate the Jewish state’s founding.

The UN resolution acknowledges the Palestinian version of the events that led to Israel’s creation, and calls for the “commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Nakba,” with a “high-level event” at the global body on May 15th, 2023. May 15 is the day Palestinians mark the Nakba, which is the day after Israel’s independence was declared in 1948.

Egypt and Jordan have peace treaties with Israel, but that didn’t stop them from co-sponsoring the resolution along with the Palestinians and Senegal, Yemen and Tunisia.

Israel’s new Arab allies from the Abraham Accords, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan, all voted in favor of the anti-Israel resolution.

The U.S. and several European countries, including the UK, Italy, Austria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, and the Netherlands voted against the resolution.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan called it a “shameful resolution.”

The founding of the UN has turned out to be a catastrophe.

Did the UN prevent the invasion of Ukraine?

Will the UN foil the CCP takeover of Taiwan?

US out of the UN. UN out of the US.

The real catastrophe happened in 1945 - the founding of the United Nations.

“The founding of the UN has turned out to be a catastrophe.”

Thank the Rockefellers. The League of Nations didn’t work so they went for ultimate evil.

The US should end foreign aid to any country that supports this anti-Israel resolution. There must be consequences.

It would have been better if they had all come to the Jewish homeland — Brooklyn, Miami and LA.

No surprise here. The UN is a cesspool at the bottom of a snakebite.
