    Sorry folks, the "Partition Plan" (UN Resolution 181) is no longer valid. For one thing, it was never a binding resolution, and in the second place the Arab rejection of it at the time totally invalidated it. In any case it was abolished by UN Resolution 186 in 1948. If the Arabs had accepted it in 1947 then things would be different, but you can't turn back the clock. See the UN source document at http://tinyurl.com/unr181
