Gaza, ALRAY - The Office of Refugee Affairs of the Islamic Resistance Movement “Hamas” stated that the United Nations committed a historic massacre against the people of Palestine, when it had adopted the Partition of Palestine into two states, an Arab state and another Jewish one.
Marking the seventieth anniversary of the Partition resolution that takes place on November 29 of every year, the office said that the resolution enabled the Jewish to establish their state on the land of Palestine, and resulted not only in the theft of history, culture and civilization of the Palestinian people.
The office added that the resolution also caused catastrophic effects of killing, displacement, suffering, and blockading, which still continue to this day.
The office pointed out that the Palestinian suffering over the past 70 years was a result of a crime perpetrated by the international community when it had adopted the unjust resolution of 181 made by the United Nations General Assembly on November 29, 1947.
The office held the United Nations the full Legal, political and moral responsibility for whatever has happened to the Palestinian people, stressing that the partition resolution is an international sin needs a universal correction.
It mentioned that the United Nations’ resolution 181 to divide the land of Palestine into two states is illegal, adding that the United Nations does not have the right neither to establish a new state nor to revoke an existing one.
The Refugee Affair Office confirmed that the resolution 181 could never be an entry point to the solution of the Palestinian cause; rather it is an episode of conspiracy against the Palestinian cause and it future.
The office called upon the United Nations and the international community to work on ending the Israeli occupation of Palestine, and to atone for their crime against the people of Palestine by correcting the resolution 181 or reversing it.
