Israel was criticized this past week after it refused to allow a group of doctors on a humanitarian mission organized by the French government to enter Gaza.
The team who was turned back by Israeli border guards say their mission is purely humanitarian, aimed to helping those in medical need, and some of whom were left injured and in need of surgery after Israel's attack on Gaza earlier this year.
The United Nations admitted Israel as a member of the world organization based on the following conditions:
1. Israel’s implementation of Resolution 181 which aims to create two independent states; a Palestinian State in the green colored areas of the partition map above, and a Jewish State in the white colored areas of the partition map above
2. Israel’s implementation of Resolution 194 which aims, among other things, to guarantee the right of return of the Palestinians to their homeland
3. Additional conditions contained in Resolution 273: “Israel is a peace-loving State and is able and willing to carry out the obligations contained in the Charter… the declaration by the State of Israel that it unreservedly accepts the obligations of the United Nations Charter and undertakes to honour them from the day when it becomes a member of the United Nations.“
