Jimmy Carter Speaks with President Obama
The November 29, 1947 UN vote for Resolution 181 on the partition of Palestine historically led to the declaration of the State of Israel. UN headquarters in New York and world body institutions in Geneva and Paris mark the anniversary with expressions of solidarity with the Palestinian people. Former US President Jimmy Carter has marked the anniversary by calling on Barack Obama to recognize Palestine before he hands the White House over to Donald Trump.
Isn’t it amazing that the issue of the state of Israel is still such a bone of contention 69 years after the vote to create a state for the Jews. What’s behind all of this? We’ll talk about it on today’s edition of End of the Age.
