    By the time Israel declared itself a state in May 1948 half of the 750 to 800.000 Palestininians, who ended up in exile had already been ethnically cleansed out of their villages and towns in the area that UNGAR 181 had reserved for the Jewish state. But 181 stated explicitly that the Palestinian Arabs in the proposed Jewish state had the same rights as Jewish citizens there and that no appropriation of land owned by an Arab was allowed. The feeble response by the Arab states came only after months of ethnic cleansing by Zionist forces in violation of UNGAR 181 and if you care to look at the map, most of the external Arab forces operated exclusively in the area allotted by UNGAR 181 to the Arab state. If it would not have been for the Arab Legion the Zionists would have taken over the whole of Palestine, including Jerusalem, which under 181 was supposed to become a corpus separatum under UN governance.
