Hi Nevada, Yes I am familiar with the developments during the period before the declaration and there's a story about PM Ben Gurion's advisor who came back from the U.S. telling him under no circumstances should Israel declare independence given the Americans stance and that Ben Gurion should notify his cabinet, etc. But that wasn't going to be as Ben Gurion took his key locked the door to his office and put the key in his pocket and said to the advisor, " you are not leaving this room until you promise me you will not mention any of this (about the U.S. stance) to the others in cabinet." Ben Gurion was adamant to declare a State for the Jewish People and Truman knew it, despite the consequences. PS. I really must go now to visit my dad with my sons but will be back. He has many stories, my dad.
