This year is no exception. In addition to a series of pro-Palestinian speeches denouncing Israel, the meeting is featuring an encore showing of the film titled La Terre Parle Arabe (The Land Speaks Arabic). The film purports to equate Zionism with Nazism. It depict the alleged “expulsion of the indigenous Arab population” and the alleged “ethnic cleansing of Palestine by the Zionist movement.”
The following is an excerpt from the film’s script:
Christians and Muslims alike…unite in their hatred of Zionism…I preferred to die as a martyr rather than be governed by the Jews …The children cried …The Hagana had no mercy, no pity. Zionists! They were Zionists!…
The Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, which hosts this hatefest, was established by the General Assembly in November 1975. Its current two year budget, including support from the Division for Palestinian Rights of the UN Secretariat, is approximately $5 million, of which American taxpayers are on the hook for more than $1 million.
What does this $5 million pay for? A Palestinian propaganda arm. The Land Speaks Arabic, shown so proudly by the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, is today’s version of the infamous Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda film Jud Süss.
In its own words, the committee “advocates” for the “inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.” As part of its advocacy, the committee issues annual reports, convenes international meetings and conferences in various regions of the world, and hosts the annual November 29th Palestinian solidarity meetings.
The committee’s most recent annual report lays the blame for the stalemated negotiations entirely on Israel. Whether it is the settlements, the security fence or blockading the Gaza coast to prevent arms smuggling to Hamas, everything Israel does to protect its own citizens is suspect.
The committee calls upon the Security Council and the General Assembly to favorably consider Palestine’s application for United Nations membership. And it advocates the Palestinian definition of what the Palestinian state should look like – “a Palestinian State on the basis of the pre-1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, and a just and agreed solution to the Palestine refugees issue.” The committee’s idea of a “just” solution to the Palestine refugees issue would entail their return to “their homes and property from which they had been displaced.” This is the essence of the so-called right of return to pre-1967 Israel demanded by the Palestinians.
The United Nations’ obsession with promoting the Palestinian cause – to delegitimize the Jewish state and enable its destruction – knows no bounds.
