United Nations loses the plot in ignoring Israel-Jordan reality

By David Singer - posted Monday, 4 December 2017


This implacable Arab rejectionism was the catalyst for the 1948 invasion of Western Palestine by six Arab armies and the perpetuation of the Arab-Jewish conflict for the next 70 years.

2017 sees:

  • Iraq, Syria and Yemen as failed states - with Saudi Arabia in danger of joining them.
  • The General Assembly sinking in quicksand of its own making after creating "The Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People" in 1975 and adopting countless resolutions using emotive and artificially-contrived terms such as:
  • "West Bank"
    • "Occupied Palestinian Territory"
    • "historic Palestine"
    • "Palestinian People"
    • "Palestinians"
    • "Palestinian State"
    • "two-state solution"

The United Nations continues to lose the plot whilst it:

(i) Uses such deceptive and misleading language

(ii) Fails to recognise that Jordan and Israel are the two successor states currently exercising sovereignty in 95% of former Palestine.

The United Nations must resurrect 1947 reality and abandon 2017 fiction.
