JB:"How odd, then, that everyone says that "the Jews" agreed to Res 181..... because, surely, according to your thesis that is completely untrue UNLESS Begin and Shamir also agreed to it. Please explain, Peter......" Begin and Shamir ultimately submitted to the will of the side that accepted Res 181. The fact that Irgun and Stern gang were integrated into the IDF was fortunate indeed for Israel. It was by no means a guaranteed outcome as the Atalena incident would testify. On the other hand to argue that Hamas will eventually be happy with a Palestine very much smaller than their Charter calls for is a very big call. But even if they do eventually submit to the higher authority of the PA, we can be certain that Hezbollah and Iran never will.
