Abu Mazen would not be where he is now without the decades of the inalienable rights committee’s work that stands behind him and that continues to stab Israel in the back.
Just look at how this committee describes itself:
The question of Palestine was first officially brought before the United Nations General Assembly in April 1947, upon a request by the United Kingdom to place the “Question of Palestine” on the Assembly’s agenda in order for “the Assembly to make recommendations, under Article 10 of the Charter, concerning the future government of Palestine” following the termination of its League of Nations’ Mandate over Palestine. The Assembly decided to partition Palestine into two States, one Arab and one Jewish, with a special international régime (corpus separatum) for Jerusalem (resolution 181 (II) of 29 November 1947). Although the independence of the State of Israel was declared on 14 May 1948, the Arab State did not come into being as several wars were fought in the area.
“The Arab state did not come into being as several wars were fought in the area…”
This is obviously a complete obfuscation and distortion of the truth. But since 1975, this sort of brazen malicious deceit is precisely what has characterized the UN narrative for the inalienable rights of the Palestinians. The Palestinian statehood egg has incubated there for 40 years, and now Abu Mazen is turning up the heat to make the egg hatch.
In its first report submitted to the Security Council in June 1976, the Committee affirmed that the question of Palestine was “at the heart of the Middle East problem” and that no solution could be envisaged without fully taking into account the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people, Palestinian national independence and sovereignty in Palestine.
Here again the language of the committee suggests that it is the UN itself which will grant independence and sovereignty to a conceivable Palestinian state. But this is unheard of. In every other case where a state has become a UN member, it has entered the organization with sovereignty and independence already in its possession. But for the Palestinian cause, the UN bends over backwards and twists its own procedures out of shape for the purpose of accommodating these people. The fact is, in spite of the inalienable rights committee’s claims, the UN has no legal or practical power to translate General Assembly recognition of a Palestinian state into facts on the ground.
Furthermore, the committee’s advocating the Palestinian refugee right of return is perhaps its clearest and most salient statement of hatred for Israel and its desire to destroy the country. There are millions of descendants of the original 1948 refugees in the various countries of the Arab world today. Admitting them back to Israel, where the homes their forebears abandoned no longer exist, is a formula for disaster. Israel’s social fabric would be torn to shreds and the country would be immersed in chaos. This of course is what the UN Palestine committee wants.
The UN committee’s propaganda and other activities for the promotion of Palestinian independence and sovereignty, including the doomsday Palestinian right of return, represent the actual foundation and back up support for the present Palestinian Authority initiative to achieve UN recognition of a Palestinian state in the UN in September. And this wholly anti-Israel and subversive UN organ has been in operation for 35 years.
