Uncork the Champagne! It's Palestine Day at the UN!
Hurrah! Hurrah! Let the festivities begin! Yes, folks, today is Palestine Day, as officially proclaimed by the East River Debating and Terrorist Cheerleading Society.
What, never heard of it? That's because the UN's bloated propaganda ministry doesn't want you to know about it -- not if you're an American taxpayer who forks over the biggest portion of the annual tab for the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. May not be very much money but, hey, wouldn't pretty much anything be too much?
This nauseating commemoration of a totally execrable cause, is, of course, just another example of how the UN continues to be twisted around the little fingers of its Arab and Moslem members. Strangely, though, there is no mention of this on the main English language UN web page, even though this day of pro-Pal frolics was authorized by a General Assembly resolution just last year. Nothing in the daily news summaries churned out by the Ted Turner-funded UN Foundation, either. Gee, you'd think they were ashamed of it, or something.
True, if you look hard enough, you can see a press release saying that Kofi Annan "called for renewed action by Israelis and Palestinians to meet their obligations under the Road Map peace process, which calls for parallel steps by both parties toward a final agreement."
Wow. Does he really mean that? I mean, wouldn't the Palestinians actually have to dismantle terror groups, as called for in the first phase of the Road Map? Can't be. The New York Times doesn't write about that except when Israeli obligations are involved. So let's not talk about that. This is a day for "solidarity"!
In addition to Kofi's speech and the press release thereon, "a dance performance, a film screening and other activities are scheduled to mark the Day of Solidarity at UN Headquarters."
The Palestinian people have sabotaged, through systematic terror, every effort that has been made to give them an actual state. But doggone it, at least they've got a film and nice speeches and a special day of their very very own. So come on now, guys, celebrate! Dance!
