NEW YORK CITY - The United Nations General Assembly observes day two of the annual International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, an annual event that critics say is devoted to Israel-bashing.
Today's debate, entitled "The Palestinian Question and the Situation in the Middle East," will focus on the Israeli "occupation" and the resultant suffering of the Arab population.
Following UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon's lead blaming Israel for the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip, the two-day annual event features films and photographic exhibits allegedly documenting Palestinian hardships under the Israeli occupation.
If all goes as planned, the two-day observance will end with at least 20 anti-Israeli resolutions.
Navi Pillay, the UN's high commissioner for human rights, recently blamed the Israeli government for the situation in Gaza, ignoring the more than 170 rockets and mortars fired by Gaza Palestinians on southern Israeli communities just in the past 10 days.
