Many do not stop blaming the Palestinians for making a “historical mistake” by rejecting the partition resolution, No. 181, issued on November 29, 1947.
Indeed, their “broad imagination” is being dismissed with their ideas to the point of claiming that were it not for this “historical mistake”, we would Today we celebrate the seventy-second anniversary of the “founding of the Palestinian state”.
First, we must start from a basic principle, which is that no historical event can be judged with a “retroactive effect”. To judge any event, it is necessary to return to its circumstances and circumstances in its time, not to judge it within the contexts, considerations and stakes of the current reality.
Returning to the resolution issued 72 years ago by the United Nations General Assembly prepared by the “UNSCOP” committee, and the proposed Jewish state gives more than 55% of the land of Palestine, compared to 45% for the proposed Arab state, it is noted that the decision did not take into account that the Palestinian population The number of Jews residing in Palestine is twice that (most of whom were brought in and are not indigenous), and the Palestinians own more than 93% of the total land of Palestine.
Gore does not stop at this point. Rather, most of the lands of the proposed Jewish state were coastal and fertile, while most of the lands of the proposed Arab state were mountains and deserts. Rather, it was annexed to the “state of the minority” city of Haifa, containing the main port of Palestine, and the last station of the oil pipeline extending from Iraq. And the oil depot for the whole country, and the headquarters of the most active commercial segments in the Palestinian society, along with the high lands from which the Jordan River descends, and, accordingly, control of the main river source of the water of the Arab state, Lake Tiberias with its fish wealth, and the only airport in Palestine near the city of Lod ..
In addition, according to international law, the General Assembly does not have the right to issue a decision to divide a state without the consent of the majority of its citizens, as it violated the principles on which it was founded, and it violated the Mandate Law, and formed a committee loyal to the Zionist movement, and was not satisfied with that, but when the United States discovered, in The day scheduled to vote on the partition project, which was on November 26, harnessed its influence and pressed for the postponement of the vote to rally more supporters of the partition, even if it came on the 29th, 8 countries switched their vote from rejection or abstention to support, namely: France, Belgium, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Haiti, Liberia, Guatemala wa The Philippines, so by the threat or the American-Zionist temptation.
It was self-evident, and before that patriotism, that the Palestinians unanimously reject and resist a decision in which this amount of injustice, injustice, deprivation of rights and breach of pledges.
Also, what happened after the partition decision, refutes all the allegations of this “historical error”, as the Zionist gangs occupied lands during the Nakba within the borders of the Arab state, and “Israel” did not set fixed borders for it in order to gain more land, which was done during a general setback 1967, by occupying the West Bank, Jerusalem, the Sinai, and the Golan, and today it occupies Jerusalem and seeks to legalize its settlements in the West Bank and annexes the Jordan Valley and the northern Dead Sea ..
The rejection of the entire partition decision was correct in all respects, by virtue of its time and the events that followed for seven decades.
