Kofi steps into it again?

This article could not be verified by our agents at the moment, since this area of Manhattan is not of a special interest to us. However, if what it tells is true, it seems that Kofi's diplomatic abilities are not what one would expect from a person at this exalted level.


















This is the prominent UN public display which was used to mark the commemoration of "International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People" on November 29, 2005. The Palestinian flag is on one side. The UN flag is on the other side. A map without the UN member state of Israel stands between them.

Somebody had a wet dream again? And you skipped the sheets check?

Duh, Kofi. Duh...

Here we go again, blaming the U.N. when as usual this is clearly the fault of the U.S.

The U.S. has been witholding payments to the U.N., and they were forced to use very old maps!

Oh yeah, sorry for the hulabaloo, greenmamba ;-)

Should I buy some maps and send them to the Palestinian rep there?

It would really be more effective to sneak into the building and add Israel to the existing maps with a (thick) felt marker. In a gay color.

Er... possibly, but then we'll never see the end of the horror stories about Elders poisoning the UN guards (ha!) and spreading depleted uranium and nerve gas over the whole building, thus being the reason for stupid, bureaucratic etc. behavior of this august body.
