Headline: "A Bahraini-Palestinian memorandum to the UN as a sign of solidarity with the 1948 Palestinians"
     "Bahraini, Palestinian, and Arab official and national figures submitted a memorandum to UN Secretary-General António Guterres as a sign of solidarity and support for the rights of the Palestinians in the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel), and this was for International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinians of 1948 (apparently refers to Solidarity Day for Palestinians in Israel, observed on Jan. 30 since 2016, not an official international day – Ed.)… The signatories to the memorandum expressed their absolute support for the affairs of the Arab-Palestinian public, which has remained in its homeland and on its land and the land of its forefathers since the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) that befell the fighting Palestinian people in 1948… In the memorandum they condemned the statements of the UN secretary-general, who said that 'Today we have two fundamental duties. First, to remember the Holocaust and its victims. Second, to be vigilant about the spread of hatred' (See note below –Ed.). In a petition to Guterres, the memorandum said: ' We wish to present before you some of the acts being carried out by those you described as victims of the Holocaust, so that together with you we will be vigilant about the spread of hatred, and so that the world will know who the real victims of the large holocaust that took place in 1948 are, and who the people is that is undergoing a holocaust now, in the 21st century, before the eyes of the entire world.'"

On Jan. 31, 2018, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said: “Today we have two fundamental duties. First, to remember the Holocaust and its victims. Second, to be vigilant about hatred today." This statement was part of his remarks at a ceremony for the UN International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust.
