# The truth is that the General Assembly?s partition proposal never went to the Security Council for consideration. Why not? Because the U.S. knew that, if approved, it could only be implemented by force given the extent of Arab and other Muslim opposition to it; and President Truman was not prepared to use force to partition Palestine. # So the partition plan was vitiated (became invalid) and the question of what the hell to do about Palestine ? after Britain had made a mess of it and walked away, effectively surrendering to Zionist terrorism ? was taken back to the General Assembly for more discussion. The option favoured and proposed by the U.S. was temporary UN Trusteeship. It was while the General Assembly was debating what do that Israel unilaterally declared itself to be in existence ? actually in defiance of the will of the organised international community, including the Truman administration.
