On November 29, 1947, the UN General Assembly passed a resolution RECOMMENDING partition....which the Arabs turned down, which the British refused to implement, and which the UN Security Council refused to adopt, passing instead Res. 44, urging the General Assembly to go back and reconsider the question of Palestine. Nothing fruitful emerged, and nothing would have emerged at all unless Israel had come out of the 1948 war victorious. And rest assured, unless this is resolved through bilateral negotiations by agreement between the two sides, once again the "unstoppable force" from the UN will turn out to be nothing but a hot fart.
