    UN 181 was a Gen Ass resolution that recommended partition of what was left of the Palestine Mandate, nearly 80% of which had already been usurped by violently (what a surprise!) exiled interlopers from Arabia, the Hashemites.
    Certainly no one here needs to be reminded that Gen Ass resolutions are non-binding and that the UN is not in the nation building business.
    What 181 offered was an incentive for the conflicted parties to peacefully settle their conflicting nationalist aspirations ... UN and international recognition.
    The soon to be Israelis accepted and went about the business of establishing a funtioning state despite the actions of their "peaceful" Arab neighbors.
    The soon to be "Palestinians" (and their shady Arab "brethren") rejected and went about the business of trying to destroy Israel.
    64 years later the fruit of their choices is brutally evident:
    Israel - 23,000 days of STATEHOOD and still winning!:clap2::clap2::clap2:
    "Palestine" - 0 days of statehood and still WHINING!:eusa_boohoo::eusa_boohoo::eusa_boohoo:

    Had the Palestinians not violated UN 181, they would have already had what they want from Israel now. It's called Palestinian mentality.

    There was no UN resolution 181 to violate.

    Got news for you. There was a UN resolution 181 --- until the Palestinians rejected it. Like I said, it's called Palestinian mentality.

    UN GA resolution 181 was a recommendation for the Security Council to partition Palestine. The Security Council rejected the plan because it would have violated the UN charter.

    End of story.

    Indeed, Then it was rejected by the Security Council because it would have violated the UN Charter.

    Really? Do you ever wonder why the "Palestinians" regularly try to resurrect UN 181, a Gen Ass resolution they once deemed to be "null and void?"
    "In 2011, Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas stated that the Arab rejection of the partition plan was a mistake he hoped to rectify.[8]"
