Israeli media has unleashed a smearing campaign against Peter Thomson, President of the 71st Session of the General Assembly, after he wore a Palestinian flag during a GA session to mark the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, marked by the GA on November 29.

Danny Danon, Israel’s representative at the United Nations “The appearance of Thomson with a Palestinian flag aims at attacking Israel and destroying its image and reputation, and is a real example of discrimination and intentional defamation instead of adopting neutral positions.”

The Israeli Daily News Paper, Yadiot Ahranot, cited previous remarks made by Thomson, in which he accused Israel of committing ethnic cleansing against Palestinians, and other remarks which the newspaper judged to be ‘antisemitic.’

The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is marked by the United Nations of November 29 each year, which also marks the division of Palestine plan issued by the UN in 1947.

  2. I had hoped our bespoke president Obama had taken the case of Palestine up
    but the will have to declare independence on heir own

  3. It is past due ALL US leaders adorn themselves with the Palestinian flag as did Peter Thomson to show their support of the Palestinian people and government and against the Israeli invasion, Israel’s exploitation of Palestinian people, and all atrocities committed by the Israeli government.
