While Israel celebrates date on which it was given a state by UN, latter plans anti-Israeli resolutions
WASHINGTON Ė The UN is currently marking the historic date of November 29 1947, the day in which it approved the partition plan separating Israel into two states Ė Jewish and Arabic.
But while in Israel the date is celebratory, as it marks the end of the British mandate and the beginning of independent rule, the UN headquarters in New York and Geneva are holding ceremonies of mourning and solidarity with the Palestinian people.
srael has traditionally boycotted the debates due to their one-sidedness, but in recent years has changed its tune. Israel's ambassador to the UN, Gabriela Shalev, is scheduled to speak before the assembly Tuesday and condemn the UN tradition of memorializing the date on which Israel was given a state as a day of mourning.
The Palestinian Maan news agency reported that the Palestinian observer at the UN, Riyad Mansour, is expected to announce a "new diplomatic strategy" and ask the Security Council to define the 1967 borders as the new borders of a Palestinian state.
Last year the former president of the General Assembly, Miguel d'Escoto, accused Israel of apartheid during a speech before the UN.
