This is obvious, just sleep on it. Res 181 passed well, because the mandatory power di not object. This means that the mandate came to an end (on May 14/15 at midnight; you are off by a day). We also know that the UN considers it to have come to an end, because it admitted Israel to the UN, and, as article 78 to the UN Charter says: "The trusteeship system shall not apply to territories which have become Members of the United Nations, relationship among which shall be based on respect for the principle of sovereign equality." Comment on settlements: The military no longer requisitions land for settlements. This came to an end in 1979, I believe, after the Supreme Court decision in the Elon Moreh case (Duweik case, I think). The Court forced the removal of the settlement.
