On Tuesday, Israel and others around the world marked the vote by the United Nations that approved a partition plan leading to the establishment of a Jewish homeland in the Land of Israel.
A ceremony to be held Tuesday night at the British Parliament will also mark the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, according to Israel Radio. Among the attendees are British lawmakers and Israeli Ambassador to Britain, Mark Regev.
69 yrs ago, 33 nations voted for the partition plan,leading to establishment of a Jewish state in the Land of Israel.
“If Palestinians had agreed in 1947 to two states for two peoples, then they would be about to celebrate 69 years of their own independence too,” Regev pointed out earlier Tuesday in a post on the Twitter social networking site.
