Israel Wiped Off UN Map

(November 2005)

The map pictured below was displayed by the UN on November 29, 2005, at a public gathering at UN Headquarters, in the presence of all top three officials - the Secretary General, and the Presidents of the Security Council and the General Assembly. It purports to be a “map of Palestine.”
Israel, a UN member state for 56 years, is not on the map. Even the UN General Assembly partition lines of November 29, 1947, marking a Jewish and Arab state, which pre-date this 1948 map, do not appear.
