First, Palestinians (plus Bedouin) were a slim majority of the ostensibly Israeli half of Partition. Half of the people of the new Israeli state didn't want to be in it. How would it have been a democracy? How was it ever to have been a Jewish state without mass expulsions? It was simply impossible, given the demographics. The Jewish half was 51% non-Jewish, and the non-Jewish half was 99% non-Jewish. And then the General Assembly has no authority. The plan was merely suggestion, with no force of law behind it, until the Security Council took it up, which it did not.
