Mrs. Elder and I visited the UN on Friday as invited guests of the Israel Mission to the UN.

Prominently displayed near the Security Council is this large wall display on the "Question of Palestine and the United Nations."


As one would expect, there are a lot of omissions and falsehoods.

Starting with:


Muslims did not consider Palestine a holy land. They considered Jerusalem to be holy (which is what Al Quds means,) and venerated a specific site in Hebron, but I have never heard anyone say that the entire land was considered holy. After all, the boundaries of that land had never been set by Muslims when they controlled it.


There is no wonderment about how the UN General Assembly supposedly violated the UN Charter. And notice how the principle of self determination for peoples does not extend to Jews, according to the Arab rejectionists.

The use of the word "Palestinians" is anachronistic, since the word at the time referred almost exclusively to Jews both by Jews themselves and by the rest of the world.


Again, it probably wouldn't have been called Palestine since that word was associated with Jews at the time, and institutions like the Palestine Symphony Orchestra and the Palestine Post were Jewish.

The exhibit does not wonder why the Arabs couldn't establish a state. It does not mention Egypt's takeover of Gaza or Jordan's illegal annexation of the West Bank.

Nothing is said about the terror attacks by Palestinian fedayeen on Israel's borders in the 1950s and 1960s. Nothing about the founding of the PLO in 1964, or Fatah in the 1950s. Nothing about the constant threats to destroy Israel from Egypt, Syria and other Arab nations.


It doesn't say what country Israel "occupied" the West Bank and Gaza from - because they belonged to no country. Which is one reason the land is not considered legally occupied - Israel had and has a legal claim to the land. It is disputed.

The 500,000 Palestinians supposedly displaced is a made up number. This UN source says between 100,000 and 300,000. I cannot find any source saying any higher numbers.

While there were some tiny villages that were destroyed, the vast majority of Arabs fled because they did not want to live under Jewish rule - Israel did not expel them, by and large, except for known terrorists and suspects. Gazans fled to Jordan on buses provided by Israel!

UNSC 242 did not mention Palestinians. In no way can it be interpreted as saying that any of the territories Israel captured were Palestinian. It didn't mention these "500,000" displaced persons, either.

Israel did not deport or transfer a single Jew to the territories. They went voluntarily. There is no violation of Geneva; in fact the entire reason additional language was added to the Rome Statute saying "transfer, directly or indirectly" was because the Arab world wanted to ensure that international law would find the settlements illegal ex post facto.


The UN doesn't mention that Palestinians were offered a state a number of times and turned it down. It doesn't mention the 1970s airplane hijackings, the two deadly intifadas, bus bombings, suicide bombers. Only Palestinian victimhood is allowed to be mentioned, not Palestinian responsibility.

There's more.



We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
