So, we have confirmation from Moshe Arens that Israel never had any intention of abiding by the UN Resolution 181 of Novemeber 1947, even though it had publicly accepted it. It does explain why Israel declared unilateral indepedence in 1948, so it would not have to follow through with its commitment to abide by the UN partition line, but instead grab as much extra land as it could. It is clear this declaration of independence was in fact an act of war. Thanks to Moshe, we can chalk up another war of agression started by Israel to add to the list of 1955, 1967, 1982, and 2006.
