Un Agreement On Palestine

Since then, this global consensus has become one of the main objectives of initiatives aimed at achieving a lasting peace agreement. During the committee`s deliberations, the British government endorsed the report`s recommendations on the end of the mandate, independence and Jewish immigration. [Citation required] However, the British felt “unable to implement an agreement” unless it was acceptable to both Arabs and Jews, and demanded that the General Assembly make available an alternative enforcement authority if that turned out to be the case. The Zionists launched an intense White House lobby to support the UNSCOP plan, and the impact was not trivial. [70] The Democratic Party, much of whose contributions came from Jews,[71] told Truman that failure to keep promises of support for Jews in Palestine would pose a danger to the party. The overflow of Jewish votes in the 1946 parliamentary elections had contributed to the loss of the elections. According to Roger Cohen, Truman was bitter about the feeling of being held hostage to the lobby and its “unwarranted interference” that he accused of the contemporary impasse. When an official U.S. statement in favor of division was made on October 11, a public relations authority told the Zionist Emergency Council in a closed-door meeting: “Under no circumstances should any of us believe or think that we have won our cause because of the dedication of the U.S.

government. We won because of the pressure of political logistics exerted by the Jewish leaders in the United States.¬†Foreign Ministry advice, which criticized UNSCOP`s controversial recommendation to give Jews the predominantly Arab city of Jaffa and the Negev, was rescinded by an urgent and secret late meeting for Chaim Weizman and Truman, which immediately thwarted the recommendation. Initially, the United States gave up on putting pressure on small states to vote in some way, but Robert A. Lovett indicated that the case of the U.S. delegation to the UN had suffered obstacles due to strong pressure from Jewish groups and that there was evidence that bribes and threats had been used. even US sanctions against Liberia and Nicaragua. [72] When the UNSCOP plan was passed on November 25 failed to achieve the required majority, turned the lobby “to full capacity”, and led the president to outsmart the State Department and let shaky governments know that the United States strongly desired partition. [73] The plan was accepted by the Jewish Agency for Palestine, despite its perceived restrictions. [5] [6] Arab leaders and governments have opposed[7] and been reluctant to accept any form of territorial division,[8] arguing that it is contrary to the principles of national self-determination enshrined in the UN Charter, which gives people the right to decide their own destiny. [6] [9] Since Israel`s occupation of the territories in 1967, the international community has repeatedly reaffirmed the need to implement Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338, which call for Israel`s withdrawal from the occupied territories. . .
