Palestinian Ambassador to Germany Laith Arafeh calls out Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for brandishing a map of the Middle East in his UNGA speech that showed the West Bank and Gaza as part of Israel.
“No greater insult to every foundational principle of the United Nations than seeing Netanyahu display before the UNGA a ‘map of Israel’ that straddles the entire land from the river to the sea, negating Palestine and its people, then attempting to spin the audience with rhetoric about ‘peace’ in the region, all the while entrenching the longest ongoing belligerent occupation in today’s world,” Arafeh tweets.
The pro-Israel community has long treated Palestinian maps not showing Israel as a form of incitement.@IsraeliPM today used a map at the UN showing Israel as comprising all of Mandatory Palestine.
This should also be condemned by the US and all in our community as incitement. pic.twitter.com/Fy2On2K4lc
