New Delhi: The Indo-Palestine Friendship Society has announced that it will hold protest demonstration in support of the Palestinian state on Thursday at Jantar Mantar here. Condemning Israeli tactics and criminal operations against the Palestinians, the Indo-Palestine Friendship Society and Solidarity Council expressed surprise on India’s silence over Israel’s continued aggression in occupied Palestine.
At a meeting, Indo-Palestine Friendship Society and other political and social groups reviewed the situation in Palestine and Israeli aggression. The meeting was held at the office of National Panthers Party here on Wednesday, which was presided over by Prof. Bhim Singh, Executive Chairman of Indo-Palestine Friendship Society who was closely associated with Palestinian Hero Yasir Arafat for more than two decades; since 1968.
Prof.Bhim Singh condemned Israeli tactics and criminal operations against the Palestinians, usurping their land, demolishing their houses and throwing them out of their homes they had been living in Palestine. He said that the United Nations Resolution No.81 of 1948 was itself violative of International Laws as it deprived the Palestinians of their homeland, their right to live honourably in their own land and forcibly created Jewish State in Palestine with the cooperation and support of big powers that included Stalin’s USSR in 1948 when the United Nations under Resolution 81 divided Palestine without vesting any power or authority in the Palestinian citizens to constitute their government. Israel was recognized by the United Nations which amounted to violation of the Charter of United Nations which did not invest any authority in the United Nations to divide a state or to establish a state or change the geographical boundaries of any state.
Prof.Bhim Singh’s book, ‘An Examination of the documents on which State of Israel is based’ was published by PLO Headquarters, Beirut in 1971.
Bhim Singh expressed surprise on the silence of India on the unfortunate interference by Israel into the internal affairs of Palestine. This act he said is violation of UN Charter and the UN Resolutions. He accused the Jewish lobby in the United States for providing illegal support to Zionist government of Israel giving them free hand to squeeze Palestinian land, plunder their civil rights and grab their green land as is reported world wise this morning in the morning newspapers.
Prof.Bhim Singh demanded that the Statehood to Palestine, vacation of all occupied territories of Palestine by Israel without any delay. He hoped that present government headed by BJP Prime Minister should not forget that India from days of Mahatma Gandhi till yesterday remained committed for the implementation of the UN Resolution vis-à-vis Palestine.
