Palestinian State with 1967 Borders. Another Palestinian Lie!

In a May 16, 2011 op-ed in The New York Times that is littered with lies, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas wrote "this September, at the United Nations General Assembly, we will request international recognition of the State of Palestine on the 1967 border and that our state be admitted as a full member of the United Nations."

He lied!

The official Application of Palestine for Admission to Membership in the United Nations submitted on September 23, 2011, reads: "This application for membership is being submitted based on the Palestinian people's natural, legal and historic rights and based on United Nations General Assembly resolution 181 (II) of 29 November 1947…".


The United Nations General Assembly resolution 181 (II) of 29 November 1947 calls for the creation of an Arab state and a Jewish state, with borders that are entirely different than the 1967 borders. In fact, the borders stated in resolution 181 (II) of 29 November 1947 call for a much smaller Jewish state than Israel's 1967 borders.


Upon passing, the UN resolution 181 (II) of 29 November 1947 was immediately accepted by the Jewish residents of Palestine.

Just as quickly, the Arabs of Palestine and the entire Arab world have unanimously and collectively rejected it.  In fact, once the British left Palestine on May 14, 1948, six Arab nations joined the Arab residents of Palestine to wage a war against the just-declared Jewish state of Israel.

The 1948-1949 Israel's Independence War resulted with new borders for Israel, which held until the 1967 Six-Day War, now commonly referred to as 'the 1967 borders'.
