Israel - The Jewish State
A MidEastTruth Video:
On November 29, 1947 the U.N. voted to partition what was British Palestine into two states: a Jewish state and an Arab state (BTW, the term "Palestinians" did not refer to Arabs then.)
The vote results:
In favor of the plan: 33 countries
Australia, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Byelorussian S.S.R., Canada, Costa Rica, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, Guatemala, Haiti, Iceland, Liberia, Luxemburg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Sweden, Ukrainian S.S.R., Union of South Africa, U.S.A., U.S.S.R., Uruguay, Venezuela.
Afghanistan, Cuba, Egypt, Greece, India, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, Yemen.
Argentina, Chile, China, Colombia, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Honduras, Mexico, United Kingdom, Yugoslavia.

The resolution was accepted by the Jews in Palestine, yet rejected by the Arabs in Palestine, under the leadership of Nazi Haj Amin al-Husseini, and by the Arab states. Arab violence in the Holy Land broke out almost immediately.
Had the Arabs accepted the 1947 U.N. Partition Plan, today they'd be celebrating 67 years of independence, next to Israel, without war, without occupation, without refugees.
The Arabs started a war of annihilation against the young, little Jewish state. They failed and are still failing.
