November 29th, 2007 marked the 60th anniversary of Resolution 181; the United Nations voted to created two states, one Arab and one Jewish. The Arabs rejected the offer, the Jews accepted the offer. To cope with their shame of making one of the stupidest mistakes in Islam's 1,400 year history which includes various episodes of regression, repression, imperialism, murder, slaughter, genocide, terrorism, and beheadings, the Muslims fabricated a holiday to be celebrated on subsequent November 29ths, and call it the "International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People". It's enough to make one puke. Fortunately, the Jews have articulate and educated representatives to sling the mud back, like Israel's ambassador, Dan Gillerman. From Israel: UN Giving Palestinians Fictitious Sense of Reality:
On Thursday, Israel's ambassador to the UN Dan Gillerman addressed the General Assembly during discussions on "the [ridiculously hyped] International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People":"This Assembly hall is also the birthplace of the annual 21 resolutions defaming Israel - with a litany of predetermined, impractical, and completely biased conclusions - that have only given the Palestinians a fictitious sense of reality and a discourse of rights without responsibilities, both of which render the United Nations completely incapable of playing a meaningful role in addressing the conflict.""It is all the more bewildering that of late the Jewish character of the State of Israel has been called into question....The resolution that gives the 29th of November significance - General Assembly Resolution 181 - speaks of the creation of the 'Jewish State' no less than 25 times. Even before that, the notion of a Jewish state in the Land of Israel was cemented in the 1922 League of Nations British Mandate on Palestine, which put into effect the Balfour Declaration of 1917 to establish a national home for the Jewish people. The Arab refusal to recognize the existence of our Jewish state has been at the core of the Palestinians' inability to achieve a state of their own."
