    out of the Jewish part of the partition. The commission recommended abolishing the Mandate and establishing an Arab and a Jewish state, and removing the Arabs from the Jewish state and removing the Jews from the Arab state. Both sides rejected it., but the Jewish side at least wanted negotiations to try to reach an agreement. Now, as to whose land was whose. By 1948 Jews had purchased (at exorbitant prices up to $1000 an acre for non arable land, while fertile land in Iowa was selling for $110 an acre) about 9% of the land in what is now Israel. So you might imagine that like what all the maps you see produced by Palestinians propagandists on the Internet that Arabs owned the other 90%. That, however, is a lie. Arabs who remained in what is now Israel owned only 3%. Arabs who fled from what is now Israel owned 16%. The rest, some 70% was state land, owned at the time by the British government, and passed to Israeli sovereignty in 1948. Up to 1970 Israel was still offering to compensate anyone who had lost land who could prove ownership. Meanwhile back at the ranch, the UN estimated that land lost by Jews who fled Arab countries amounted to up to 10 times that which was owned by Arabs who fled Israel. They have never been offered compensation.
