UN Partition Plan

Dore Gold, former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, examines the significance of the UN vote adopting the Partition Plan 70 years ago.

Next Wednesday, November 29, will mark 70 years since the UN General Assembly approved the historic Resolution 181, also known as the Partition Plan, calling for an independent Jewish state alongside an Arab state in the British Mandate of Palestine.

Former ambassador Dore Gold takes a close look at the vote, examining it in light of the historical background of the 1917 Balfour Declaration and the 1922 League of Nations Mandate.

Gold finds special significance in the vote, but not for the reason generally attributed to it, as he does not believe a UN vote can create a nation.

See what he does believe created the modern State of Israel and why he thinks a special post-Independence War speech by David Ben Gurion proves the UN has no authority to change Israel’s borders today.






Life-Saving ATVs Stop Terrorists Before they Attack Innocent Israelis

Specialized, state-of-the-art, compact, all-terrain ATVs that maneuver in tight spaces are Israel’s “secret weapon,” designed to pursue and capture terrorists BEFORE they attack. Life-saving ATVs are desperately needed to protect communities throughout Israel. Please donate generously!
