November 29, 1947

Today is the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. On November 29, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the resolution on the partition of Palestine: A/RES/181(II). Anti-Zionist Notes, a new blog by "a jewish israeli-american and a former west bank settler," recommends Simha Flapan's The Birth of Israel: Myths And Realities (Pantheon, 1987) for a better understanding of the resolution and events that followed it.
