UN's Palestine Day Observance Fizzles

GENEVA (JTA) — It was
billed as a Day of Solidarity
with the Palestinian People
and their aspirations. It had
the official 'blessing of the
United Nations. It was

was to be a propaganda coup
for the Palestinian cause
and against Israel.
But it fizzled, due in large
measure to the ineptness of
the organizers, according to
journalists attending the
various events. Even the
elements conspired against
it.
Palestine Day was de-
clared an official day of cel-
ebration by the UN General
Assembly in 1977. It is ob-
served on Nov. 29, the an-
niversary of the UN deci-
sion of Nov. 29, 1947, to par-
tition Palestine into Jewish
and Arab states.
The first thing to go
wrong here was the press
conference featuring
Mayor Bassam Shaka of
Nablus. Shaka lost both
his legs in a bomb explo-
sion last June. The crime,
widely attributed to
Jewish extremists, re-
mains unsolved. But the
West Bank mayor is con-
sidered a martyr in Arab
and pro-Arab circles.
The world news media
was on hand to record his
remarks. But Shaka spoke
in Arabic and the interpre-
ter hired for the occasion
was incompetent and his
words were lost to the vast
majority of reporters. Jour-
nalists left the press confer-
ence angered at having
wasted their time.
Another event billed an
Israeli journalist, Amnon
Kapeliuk, as a participant
in "Palestine Day."
Kapeliuk accepted the invi-
tation to Geneva, appar-
ently under the impression
that he would take part in a
round-table discussion at
the local university with the
West Bank Arab poetess
and journalist, Raymonda
Tawil.
When Kapeliuk became
aware of the propaganda
nature of the occasion, he
declined to go along with his
Arab hosts. At the round-

lavishly financed by the
Arab League, the Arab-
Swiss Friendship Associa-
tion and the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization dele-
gation to the UN here. It

table he spoke only about
peace prospects.
An art exhibition, an
Arab buffet and Arab
folk dances were part of
the program at a public
hall over the weekend.
But Geneva's notorious
wind, the "Bize" was
blowing at full strength.
It was bitter cold and
most of the Swiss pre-
ferred to stay home.
The only successful event
was the UN meeting held at
the Palais Des Nations in
the presence of UN officials,
diplomats and the Geneva
authorities. The usual suc-
cession of anti-Israel
speeches was delivered by
representatives of un-
aligned nations, the African
Unity Group, the Interna-
tional Commission of
Jurists, the PLO, the
Socialists and, again,
Mayor Shaka of Nablus.
(a mass demonstration of
solidarity with the Palesti-
nian people was held in Ut-
recht by the recently formed
Association of Palestinians
in Holland, the Netherlands
Palestine Committee and
other pro-Palestine and lef-
tist groups. But the masses
failed to materialize.)
Meanwhile, the Geneva
Jewish community is sur-
prised and disturbed by the
Swiss Socialist Party's un-
expected invitation to Daud
Barakat, the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization's
representative accredited to
the United Nations here, to
participate in its annual as-
-
sembly.
Many Swiss Jews are
active members of the
Socialist Party which
has, in the past, sup-
ported Israel uncondi-
tionally.
In Bonn, a reception
given by the PLO to mark
"International Solidarity
Day With the Palestinian
People" failed to attract
prominent West German
political figures.
In New York, the Zionist
Organization of America is
advising its members not to
protest the "Inalienable
Rights of the Palestinian
People" stamps which the
United Nations will issue
on Jan. 31 in order to pre-
vent them from becoming a
"collectors item."
In a letter addressed to
"Dear ZOA Leader," Paul
Flacks, executive direc-
tor of the ZOA, acknowl-
edged "the propaganda
value of the stamp itself."
However, he wrote, "We
understand that for a 'first
issue' the actual number of
stamps printed is less than
usual. We would also like to
avoid these stamps becom-
ing a 'collectors item.'
To protest the issuance of
these stamps, may there-
fore, create a 'market' for
them that would not be de-
sirable. Stamp dealers will
be quick to capitalize on the
sets if they believe that the
stamps will become con-
troversial."

opinion of any one as to he

social aims, and new moral
