The passage of U.N. General Assembly Resolution 181, also known as the Partition Plan, on Nov. 29, 1947, marked an enormous moral victory for the Jewish people in their effort to gain international recognition for their right to Jewish state. Five months later, David Ben-Gurion declared Israel's independence, referring to the U.N. General Assembly’s partition resolution from Nov. 29.
But was it true that Israel owed its very existence to the U.N., as it became popularly perceived years later? According to a legal study commissioned in the late 1970s by the U.N. Secretariat’s Special Unit on Palestinian Rights, Resolution 181 was the "juridicial basis" of the State of Israel according to international law. This same line of argument was repeated just this week by an Israeli analyst in the opinion section of the New York Times, who wrote that the vote on Nov. 29 was the "legal basis for the establishment of the State of Israel.”
Leading international legal scholars have vociferously rejected this claim. The noted Australian legal scholar Professor Julius Stone wrote in 1980 that Israel "does not derive its legal existence from the Partition Plan."
Laura: Just when you think degenerate leftists can’t be any more vile in their positions regarding the Jewish state, they explicitly come out endorsing hamas rocket fire at Israeli civilians. They are calling for the boycott of weapons sales to Israel so that hamas can fire rockets at Israelis unobstructed. These are sick, twisted, morally depraved people who see Israeli self-defense as probematic rather than the genocidal hamas terrorists who’s charter calls for the obliteration of Israel and the genocide of Jews. Every one of these signatories should be forced to endure dodging rocket fire in their neighborhoods. That worthless piece of excrement roger waters is among the supporters of this depraved cause. He is the guy who came out against Israel’s security fence, falsely calling it an “apartheid” wall. There is no other way to describe these miscreants other than calling them what they truly are, nazis. There is no other conclusion to be drawn except that they support the mass murder of Jews. Who is going to prevent hamas from receiving weapons? These scumbags don’t care about that. The left is constantly harassing the beseiged and belleaguered tiny Jewish state while it defends itself from attacks against genocidal enemies surrounding it. But they are silent on islamic Jew-hatred, on the real apartheid being practiced in muslim countries and the persecution and murder of non-muslims. Take note of the entertainers who signed this petition and boycott them.Nobel peace laureates call for Israel military boycott over Gaza assault
