    "Israel was declared and approved by the UN." (Zev) Wrong again. It is not the UN which "declared Israel", but the Provisional State Council, in Tel Aviv, on the fourteenth day of May, 1948. "Have a little respect for the intelligence of the readers and don't try to change the facts." (Zev) "We appeal to the United Nations to assist the Jewish people in the building of its State, and to admit Israel into the family of nations." From the Declaration of Israel's Independence, 1948. It happened almost exactly one year after Ben Gurion had read the Declaration, as Chairman of the Provisional State Council: On May 11, 1949, the General Assembly, decided "1 - that Israel is a peace-loving State which accepts the obligations contained in the Charter, and is able and willing to carry out those obligations", and "2 - to admit Israel to membership in the United Nations." http://domino.un.org/UNISPAL.NSF/vGARes Not one word about "Modern Israel as a Jewish state", but as a State "which accepts the obligations contained in the [United Nations] Charter." The state of Israel, not the Jewish People. On August 20, 1980, the UN Security Council resolution 478, passed 14-0, with the United States abstaining, declared that the annexation by Israel of East Jerusalem is "null and void", and that no UN member state should recognized it. However much the world has learned from the Jewish people, only fools believe the state of Israel can teach the international community what are the international rules of law.
