On November 22

On this day in ...
... 1974 (35 years ago today), the U.N. General Assembly adopted Resolution 3237, which granted permanent observer status to the Palestine Liberation Organization. Fourteen years later that decision would be reviewed in an International Court of Justice advisory opinion.
