    3) By 1946, the British Mandate had thrown up up its hands, set up the Anglo-American Committee, and the matter was referred to the UN. On Nov. 29, 1947, the UN decided on partitioning Mandatory Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state. This time, the Jews were granted a much larger chunk of Palestine, reflecting the growth in Jewish population (mostly natural growth) and settlement. Again the Jews accepted, the Palestinians rejected. This led to the 1948 War of Independence, in which the Jewish state grew larger, and the Palestinian territories both shrank and were taken over by Egypt and Jordan. But the Arabs still rejected Israel's existence. 4) When the PLO was founded in 1963, it dreamt of a Palestinian state "from the Sea to the River". But the Six-Day War put all of British Mandatory Palestine under the control of the hated Zionists. Yet, the Khartoum Conference of Nov.1967 rejected any negotiations with, or recognition of, Israel. And then Jewish settlements began to spring up in the West Bank and Gaza.
