The 86th Anniversary of the 'Mandate for Palestine'

This anniversary was on July 24, 2008, but I have been too busy until now to post this. (I'm still busy, but this is very important.) This is a part of history which must not be forgotten. Not now. Not ever.
86 years ago - on July 24, 1922, the League of Nations (equivalent to today's UN) published the historical document "Mandate for Palestine" that laid down the Jewish legal right to settle anywhere in western Palestine - the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an entitlement unaltered in international law.

The "Mandate for Palestine" was not a naive vision briefly embraced by the international community. Fifty-one member countries - the entire League of Nations - unanimously declared on July 24, 1922:
"Whereas recognition has been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country."
It is important to note that political rights to self-determination as a polity for Arabs were guaranteed by the same League of Nations in four other mandates - in Lebanon and Syria [The French Mandate], Iraq, and later Trans-Jordan [The British Mandate].

Any attempt to negate the Jewish people's right to Palestine - Eretz-Israel, and to deny them access and control in the area designated as the Jewish National Home by the League of Nations is a serious infringement of international law.

Those claiming that Jewish settlements in the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea are illegally occupied, should answer just one simple question: In 1922 Jewish settlements were perfectly legal - What has changed?

This was written by Eli E. Hertz, and the name of the site is Myths and Facts. I like this site, and I just wanted to share it with you on this very important anniversary. Have a very nice weekend, and G-d bless you all.

PS. During WWII, the Jewish fighters against Hitler were known as PALESTINIANS. Put that in your so-called peace pipe and smoke it all of you Arabs that are hostile against Israel and all anti-semetic racists in America and the world. Yes, I dislike you with every cell in my body, but I do not 'hate' you. I understand being lied to for your whole life. I understand being brainwashed. I also understand how to fix things so that there is no longer hatred. That is my real problem. I dislike any person who hates someone based on ignorance. That includes red, yellow, black and white.

Don't you remember the song?
Jesus loves the little children.
All the children of the world.
Red, yellow, black and white,
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves them all!
Now go out today and love someone. ;)
