Reminder: This day commemerates the UN resolution on partition in 1947

29.11.2010 15:07

The proposed plan was accepted by the leaders of the Jewish community in Palestine, through the Jewish Agency.[1][2] However, the plan was rejected by leaders of the Arab community (the Palestine Arab Higher Committee etc.),[1][3] who were supported in their rejection by the states of the Arab League. In a communication to the United Nations Palestine Commission dated 19 January 1948, the Arab Higher Committee for Palestine stated that it was "determined [to] persist in rejection [to the] partition and in refusal [to] recognize UNO resolution [with] this respect and anything deriving therefrom".[4]

Two minor exceptions to this rejectionist line were the National Liberation League in Palestine, an Arab-Palestinian Communist faction which supported the Partition Plan (since it followed all Soviet policies), and Emir Abdullah of Transjordan, who in strictly private discussions was in favor of the partition plan — under the assumption that the Arab state under the plan would be annexed to Transjordan — yet never publicly accepted the plan (he later suggested that Transjordan should annex the whole mandate territory and establish a Jewish autonomous entity, to be eventually aligned with the rest of the Arab countries).[5]

The passing of the UN resolution marked the start of the 1947–1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine.[6]
