Days of Palestine - Gaza

During the official commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, which was commenced on Monday, world leaders gave speeches about the great achievements and future challenges posed to international body.

They were right about the UN’s prominent role in maintaining international peace and security in several parts around the globle and contributions to directing the international compass towards several challenges that pose a real threat to the entire human race.

However, no one unfortunately addressed the catastrophic failure of the international body formed in the 1945 San Francisco Conference to “replace the rule of force with the rule of law.”

But, it seems that this rule does not apply to the Israeli occupation.

The UN, which prompted the creation of the Israeli occupation, failed to protect the Palestinians from all forms of terrorism practiced against them on a daily basis for more than 72 years or help them restore their rights to liberation, independence and self-determination, which is part of one of its long-standing principles.      

This failure will continue haunting the United Nations until it makes things right and rectify this mistake.

On the occasion of the 75th anniversary, Hamas said in a statement that we hope that the UN, as per its foundational principles, seriously help our people restore their rights to freedom and independence and end the Israeli occupation; the ongoing Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people is one of the major reasons behind the failure to bring about international peace and security.

"We also hope that peace and prosperity will prevail around the globe and the dreams of all humanity to eradicate poverty, unemployment, racism, and illiteracy come true," the statement added.
