The Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People: Nov 29 Every Year

By Hassan El-Najjar

November 29, 2003


(Saudi Aljazirah, 11/29/03).


On November 29, 1978, the UN General Assembly (UNGA) devoted a session of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The date coincides with the date when the UNGA adopted Resolution 181, on November 29, 1947, that partitioned Palestine into two states, one Arab and another Jewish, with special status for the city of Jerusalem.

The Jewish state was declared on May 14, 1948. Then it expanded on the expense of the Arab state of Palestine, annexing Galilee, most of the  Gaza Strip, most of the West Bank, and Jerusalem, as illustrated by comparing the Partition Map with the 1967 occupation map, linked below.

Today, peace loving people all over the world express their solidarity with the Palestinian people against Israeli aggression, dispossession and uprooting of Palestinians from their lands, in violation of UN resolutions.

See how Israelis violated the 1947 Partition resolution by annexing the Galilee, most of Gaza Strip, most of the West Bank, and by the occupation of Jerusalem. Click on the following link:

Compare the Partition Map with the map showing the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, which have been subjected to the Israeli occupation, since 1967

Then, look at the Israeli greed, as represented by annexing more Palestinian lands through the building of more Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Finally, see how the dispossession of the Palestinian people is in violation of God's promise that the Holy Land is the property of descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (The Palestinian People), not to followers of any specific religion
