After all, if Res 181's reference to "a Jewish state" really was meant to define Israel as " the nation-state of the Jewish people" then it must be equally true that when it referred to "an Arab state" it meant to define Palestine as "the nation-state of the Arab people". Which must come as quite a surprise to Egypt, Jordan, Libya i.e. you end up with a manifestly absurd result. The only way to avoid that absurd result is to accept that Res 181's references to "an Arab state" and "a Jewish state" were DESCRIPTIVE, and was not meant to be DEFINITIATIVE.
