Nabil Abu Rudeineh - spokesman for Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas – has angrily reacted to President Trump's intensive diplomatic efforts seeking to enlist Egypt, Jordan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia in advancing Trump's long-awaited "deal of the century" to end the Arab-Jewish conflict.
The American delegation should abandon the illusion that creating false facts and falsifying history are going to help it sell those illusions.
Creating false facts and falsifying history has been the province of the PLO and the United Nations (UN) for decades.
The 1968 PLO Charter declared the 1917 Balfour Declaration, the 1922 Mandate for Palestine and everything subsequently based on them to be null and void.
The United Nations publication "The Origins and Evolution of the Palestine Problem 1917-1988" ("Study") - published by the Division for Palestinian Rights of the United Nations Secretariat for, and under the guidance of, the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People - falsely claimed:
After investigating various alternatives the United Nations proposed the partitioning of Palestine into two independent States, one Palestinian Arab and the other Jewish…
The UN proposal – Resolution 181(II) - actually referred to:
Independent Arab and Jewish States"…
Resolution 181(II) clearly denied the existence of any distinctly identifiable Palestinian people in 1947 – yet the Study falsified this narrative.
The Study also omitted to mention that 78% of Palestine had already become an independent Arab State in 1946 and been renamed the Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan.
Creating a separate state for the "Palestinians" - never identified as a separate people by the international community in 1947 – is seen by that same international community in 2018 to be the only solution capable of ending the conflict between Jews and Arabs.
