"This is the same "corrupt" organization that gave Palestine to the zionists on a platter." The UN did not give the Jewish people Palestine "on a platter."The Jewish connection to Palestine is not just a matter of historical fact,but of international law.When the League of Nations entrusted Britain with the mandate in 1922,it expressly recognized the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and the rightfullness of reconstituting their national home in that country.
