PA historical revisionism: The UN did not offer the Arabs a state in 1947

Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook  |
For years the Palestinians have been rewriting history in an attempt to create legitimacy for both their demand for statehood and the terror campaign they have waged against Israel since Israel’s establishment in 1948.
The latest example of this ongoing historical revisionism is a severe distortion of the well-known UN Partition Plan of 1947, which recommended the division of the Land of Israel/Palestine into two states: one Jewish and one Arab.

The new Palestinian version of the Partition Plan was revealed last week by Dr. Ahmad Subh, Deputy Minister in the PA Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who explained that the UN General Assembly in 1947 granted approval to only one state, Israel, and not to an Arab state.

The following are the words of Dr. Subh:

"The International day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on Nov. 29 was not picked
coincidentally, that's the anniversary of the [1947 UN] Partition Plan. 
In the year 1977, the UN General Assembly decided to rehabilitate the Palestinian people, following the historic injustice which happened in 1947, when ‘a birth certificate’ was offered to one state instead of to two states.
One state [Israel] was permitted to be established, while the Palestinian state was not permitted to be established." Click here to view
