The facts and the events which took place in the wake of the [Partition Plan] resolution show that the Israeli colonialist plans treated the publication of the Partition [Plan] Resolution as the beginning of their seizure of all of Palestine. It represented a good opportunity to embark on a war of annihilation and ethnic cleansing, which the Zionist gangs carried out, leading to the Palestinian Nakba (“Catastrophe”, term used by Palestinians about the establishment of Israel) in 1948. Through force and intimidation they expelled [the inhabitants], seized the property of about 80% of the Palestinian inhabitants, and declared the establishment of the State of Israel on 78% of the land of Palestine."
