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! "Palestine" - 0 days of statehood and still WHINING!
