With polls ahead of Thursday’s mayoral election putting George Galloway on no more than 1%, we could be witnessing the welcome political demise of a malignant racist.19:43 02.05.16 | 0 comments
Resolution 181 was a ?Green Light? for Jewish Statehood, but a ?Dead? Blueprint for Peace. The resolution recognized the need for immediate Jewish statehood (and a parallel Arab state), but the ?blueprint? for peace became a moot issue when the Arabs refused to accept it. Subsequently, de facto realities on the ground in the wake of Arab aggression (and Israel?s survival) became the basis for UN efforts to bring peace. Resolution 181 lost its validity and relevance. Resolution 181 has no legal ramifications ? that is, Resolution 181 recognized the Jewish right to statehood, but its validity as a potentially legal and binding document was never consummated. Like the schemes that preceded it, Resolution 181?s validity hinged on acceptance by both parties of the General Assembly?s recommendation.
