UN Ceremony Includes Map of ´Palestine´ in Place of Israel 16:32 Dec 08, '05 / 7 Kislev 5766 By Ezra HaLevi

The United Nations held a "Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People" last week. A large map of “Palestine,” with Israel literally wiped off the map, featured prominently in the festivities.

The ceremony was held at the UN headquarters in New York and was attended by Secretary General Kofi Annan and the Presidents of the UN Security Council and the General Assembly. Map of "Palestine" from the Jordan River to the sea, with no mention of the Jewish State.

During the festivities, a map labeled a "map of Palestine” was displayed prominently between UN and PLO flags. The map, with “Palestine” written in Arabic atop it, does not include Israel, a member of the UN for 56 years. The map does not even demarcate the partition lines of November 29, 1947, marking a Jewish state alongside an Arab state. The partition was dictated by the UN General Assembly itself. Map surrounded by the flags of the UN and PLO.

With the map hanging behind him, Secretary-General Annan addressed the public meeting at UN Headquarters. Kofi Annan sits at the dais with the map negating the Jewish State's existence in the background (lower left side of photo).

At the start of the ceremony, the dignitaries present asked attendees to observe a moment of silence. “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,” the master of ceremonies said, “and the return of peace between Israel and Palestine.“ A moment of silence is held for those who "gave their lives for the Palestinian cause."

Anne Bayefsky, who reported on the event for the Eye on the UN organization, said that the ceremony's wording was aimed at giving honor to the worst of Palestinian terrorists. "It was a moment ... crafted to include the commemoration of suicide-bombers,” she wrote.

In response to the event, Bayefsky and her organization have once again asked the U.S. to withhold funding from the UN.

Sickening.

U.N. openly sides with the enemy in the war on terror.

"A large map of “Palestine,” with Israel literally wiped off the map"

I'm surprised they hadn't added a little picture of the UN HQ moved to "Palestine".

OH, that's right--the UNies talk pro-Palestine from the safety of eeeeeeeeevil America...

Time to start distributing tourist maps of NYC with the UN building gone. Distribute them on the steps of that building, just for grins.

How much more evidence does our government need to end this frickin madness. And then to turn around and say "God bless America"! Why the f@#$ would he when this is allowed to happen in our country, with our money, under our noses, and doing NOTHING about it.
Make no mistake about it "God bless America" needs to be changed to "God HELP America", and SOON!

I believe we all know where the UN is headed and we should get off the train, yesterday.

It's time to kick the UN out of the US, cancell our membership and stop paying dues.

I'm 90 miles away from the communist state on the east side of Manhattan and they are a target rich environment for the MSM. We need to organize weekly demonstrations complete with Pro Bolton and get US out signs.....just a weekely thing where those of us nearby can pitch in and keep the pressure on. Throw in a couple of "Johnny Kerry sign the Form 180, you worthless POS" signs for good measure....
