1947 The United Nations votes to partition of Palestine into two sovereign states - one Arab, one Jewish. Under this plan Jerusalem would be internationalized. The transition from British rule would occur on Oct. 1, 1948. Jews accept the U.N Partition Plan. Arabs, resenting another instance of Western imperialism, reject it. Estimated population: Arabs 1,300,000; Jews 600,000. http://www.bc.edu/bc_org/research/cjl/Israel_Palestine/establishment_Israel.htm If Judaic people could partition the United Nations for a sovereign state WHY NOT black/African-American's PARTITION the United Nations for a sovereign State?
