Badge - Free Palestine Fight Zionism, 1948-1987 Reg. No: SH 870521
- 'Free Palestine Fight Zionism' badge, alternatively known as a button, brings attention to the long-standing animosity between Palestine and Israel. The state of Israel was declared on 14 May 1948. A separate Jewish state had been proposed by the League of Nations following World War I, and again following the Holocaust in World War II. In 1947 plans to divide Palestine were again proposed by the United Nations. Despite Israel's creation in 1948, many Palestinians and neighbouring countries did not support its being. There has been conflict in the middle-east ever since.
Zionism refers to the movement for the return of Jewish people to their homeland and for that homeland to be located in Israel.
- This is a circular badge with the Palestinian Flag used as the background (colours: red, green, white, black). It has white printed text encircling the upper and lower halves. Pin on the back.
