Sedan 1977 har man i FN firat den 29 november som en internationell dag av solidaritet med det palestinska folket.
FN vill därmed visa sin solidaritet med de palestinska araberna som vägrade acceptera att det skulle bildas en judisk stat och därmed vägrade gå med på delningsförslaget och istället startade ett krig mot judarna.
Samtidigt passar man i FN på att årligen denna dag rösta igenom 6 resolutioner som fördömer Israel, alltså den part som accepterade FN:s delningsplan och byggt upp en fungerande stat i området.
Vanlig logik fungerar tydligen inte i FN sammanhang.
Finland och Sverige röstade för tre av resolutionerna och avstod att rösta tre gånger.
Några dagar innan solidaritetsdagen klargjorde palestiniernas ambassadör i Indien, Adli Sadeq, att de palestinska araberna håller fast vid åsikten att Israel inte har någon rätt att existera.

Prosor slams UN’s 'Solidarity with Palestinians' (Jerusalem Post)Här kan man läsa ett bra tal som Israels FN-ambassadör Ron Prosor höll inför Generalförsamlingen.
Amb Prosor addresses UNGA debate on "The Question of Palestine"
"...Let me take a moment to remind this Assembly about what actually occurred on this day 64 years ago - and in the days that followed.
On November 29, 1947, the United Nations voted to partition then British-Mandate Palestine into two states: one Jewish, one Arab. Two states for two peoples. The Jewish population accepted that plan and declared a new state in its ancient homeland. It reflected the Zionist conviction that it was both necessary and possible to live in peace with our neighbors in the land of our forefathers. The Arab inhabitants rejected the plan and launched a war of annihilation against the new Jewish state, joined by the armies of five Arab members of the United Nations.
One percent of Israel's population died during this assault by five armies. Think about that price. It would be the equivalent of 650,000 dying in France today, or 3 million dying in the United States, or 13 million dying in China. As a result of the war, there were Arabs who became refugees. A similar number of Jews, who lived in Arab countries, were forced to flee their homes as well. They, too, became refugees.
The difference between these two distinct populations was - and still is - that Israel absorbed the refugees into our society. Our neighbors did not.
Refugee camps in Israel gave birth to thriving towns and cities. Refugee camps in Arab countries gave birth to more Palestinian refugees. We unlocked our new immigrants' vast potential.
The Arab world knowingly and intentionally kept their Palestinian populations in the second class status of permanent refugees. In Lebanon for many years and still today, the law prohibits Palestinians from owning land - and from working in the public sector or as doctors and lawyers. Palestinians are banned from these professions. In Kuwait, the once significant Palestinian population was forcibly expelled from the country in 1991. Few remain. In Syria, thousands of Palestinians had to flee refugee camps in Latakia last August when President Assad shelled their homes with naval gunboats. In the vast majority of Arab countries, Palestinians have no rights of citizenship. It is no coincidence that the Arab world's responsibilities for the "inalienable rights" of these Palestinians never appear in the resolutions before you..."
