UN Votes to Celebrate ‘Day of Catastrophe’ on Israel’s Birth
The international hatred of Israel and love for Palestine has seemed to reach a fever pitch. We must pray for Israel in this crucial time.
From CBN News. The United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution Thursday by a 90-30 vote to commemorate the Palestinian “Nakba” or day of catastrophe coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the birth of modern Israel in 1948. Israel’s UN Ambassador Gilad Erdan called the vote a “disgrace.” The US, Australia, the UK and Canada were among the nations that joined Israel in voting against the resolution.
The Palestinian-sponsored resolution supports “a commemoration of Nakba (catastrophe), including by organizing a high-level event at the (UN) General Assembly Hall,” in May, 2023, which will also mark the 75th anniversary of Israel’s reestablishment as a nation.
It also calls for “relevant archives and testimonies” supporting the Palestinian narrative of the 1948 events. Egypt, Jordan, Senegal, Tunisia and Yemen co-sponsored the resolution with the Palestinians. Egypt and Jordan were two of the nations which attacked Israel immediately after it declared independence.
In the debate before the vote, Erdan asked the assembly, “What would you say if the international community celebrated the establishment of your country as a disaster? What a disgrace.” …
The General Assembly also voted for three other pro-Palestinian resolutions Thursday, including one calling on Israel to withdraw from the Golan Heights. Israel annexed the Golan in 1981.
