"The UN partition plan was offered in General Assembly Resolution 181. GA resolutions are never binding on anyone. The terms of the resolution stated that if each side, Arab and Jewish, accepted the plan, it was to go to the Security Council for ratification, making it international law. If it was rejected by either, it was back to the negotiating table. Neither side had any right to accept the plan and unilaterally enforce it and declare statehood. Israel did so anyway. Despite this breach in existing international agreements, they were rewarded with recognition by the UN".
My reply to the mentally challenged Least-Able Falestinian Troll:
Oh dear me Green and Gray - mon faux pas!
Legal he says, eh?
Let's check the correct LEGAL details may we!
By the refusal to accept the UNR181 resolution -Ah yes this part is correct it was a "non -binding resolution" (there goes your claim to the Arab part of the "Partition Plan" -
The (your buddies) "Arabs of the Mandated Territory' aka your Falestinians FORFEITED their right to any part of the remaining 22 % of the League of Nations Mandatory Area! By attacking Jewish settlements and individuals prior to the Withdrawal of the Mandatory Forces the warring clans of the Nusseibeh and Husseini also violated the UN Charter Article 2 Sections 3 -5
You see the people who "Submitted the resolution" -the "Mandatory" -aka the British Stated their desire to return the "Mandate" to the UN ( who inherited the 1922 Treaty of Serves (San Remo Agreement) and as such announced their WITHDRAWAL from ALL RESPONSIBILITY as the MANDATORY Power on May 15th, 1948!
With their withdrawal they left the area in the hands of "he who should claim it:
"Uti possidetis (Latin for "as you possess") is a principle in international law that territory and other property remains with its possessor at the end of a conflict, unless otherwise provided for by treaty; if such a treaty does not include conditions regarding the possession of property and territory taken during the war, then the principle of uti possidetis will prevail. Originating in Roman law, the phrase is derived from the Latin expression uti possidetis, ita possideatis, meaning "may you continue to possess such as you do possess" (lit., "as you possess, thus may you possess"). This principle enables a belligerent party to claim territory that it has acquired by war.
So as the British -"the mandatory power" lowered their flag and sailed out of Haifa Port leaving the Mandated Area as "A Land belonging to NO SOVERIGN POWER"
OUR Zionist Delegates met in Tel Aviv and declared the founding of the Independent STATE OF ISRAEL.
The "friends" of the "Arabs of the Mandated Territory" -the Seven Nations of the Arab League ALSO leapt in to "divide the spoils" -in direct VIOLATION of UN Charter Article 2 Sections 3 -5
3. All Members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security, and justice, are not endangered.
4. All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.
5. All Members shall give the United Nations every assistance in any action it takes in accordance with the present Charter, and shall refrain from giving assistance to any state against which the United Nations is taking preventive or enforcement action.
With Israel's glorius victory -in handing the "Seven Arab League" countries their asses in a sling - they put their tales between their legs and ran off to hide and put the fools who listened to the "chauvanistic bravado statements ' into refugee camps and denied responsibility for the Nacba!
Some examples to whine cry and continue to throw tantrums over:
ON APRIL 9, 1953, the Jordanian daily al-Urdun quoted a refugee, Yunes Ahmed Assad, formerly of Deir Yassin, as saying: "For the flight and fall of the other villages, it is our leaders who are responsible, because of the dissemination of rumors exaggerating Jewish crimes and describing them as atrocities in order to inflame the Arabs ... they instilled fear and terror into the hearts of the Arabs of Palestine until they fled, leaving their homes and property to the enemy."
ANOTHER refugee told the Jordanian daily a-Difaa on September 6, 1954: "The Arab governments told us, 'Get out so that we can get in.' So we got out, but they did not get in."
"FOLLOWING a visit to refugees in Gaza, a British diplomat reported the following: 'But while they express no bitterness against the Jews...they speak with the utmost bitterness of the Egyptians and other Arab states: 'We know who our enemies are,' they will say, and they are referring to their Arab brothers who, they declare, persuaded them unnecessarily to leave their homes." -British Foreign Office Document #371/75342/XC/A/4991
IN THE MARCH 1976 issue of Falastin a-Thaura, then the official journal of the Beirut-based PLO, Mahmud Abbas ("Abu Mazen"), PLO spokesman, wrote: "The Arab armies entered Palestine to protect the Palestinians from the Zionist tyranny but, instead, they abandoned them, forced them to emigrate and to leave their homeland, and threw them into prisons similar to the ghettos in which the Jews used to live."
As for your 70+ years Tragedy Tourists of the Nacba Fantasy, well C'est La Vie!
Suck it up LOSERS......
