UN: The Arabs Did Not Attack Israel in 1948, TThere Was No War

Here is an excerpt from the Uited Nations website on the history of the "Question of Palestine":
After looking at various alternatives, the UN proposed the partitioning of Palestine into two independent States, one Palestinian Arab and the other Jewish, with Jerusalem internationalized (Resolution 181 (II) of 1947). One of the two States envisaged in the partition plan proclaimed its independence as Israel and in the 1948 war expanded to occupy 77 per cent of the territory of Palestine. Israel also occupied the larger part of Jerusalem. Over half the indigenous Palestinian population fled or were expelled. Jordan and Egypt occupied the other parts of the territory assigned by the partition resolution to the Palestinian Arab State which did not come into being.


Notice there is no war. The UN's failure to even portray factual history clearly demonstrates why it is part of the problem, not the solution.
