  UN General Assembly Resolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A United Nations General Assembly Resolution is voted on by all member states of the United Nations in the General Assembly and requires a simple majority (50% of all votes plus one) to pass (with the exception of 'important questions which require two-thirds majority').
Resolution 47/181: The partition of the British Mandate of Palestine.
Resolution 505: Threats to the political independence and territorial integrity of China (Republic of China) and to the peace of the Far East, resulting from Soviet violations of the Sino-Soviet Treaty of Friendship and Alliance of 14 August 1945 and from Soviet violations of the Charter of the United Nations

 The First Breach of the UN Charter - The United Nations and Israel
Arab leaders were enraged when UN resolution 181 (the Partition Plan) was adopted on November 29, 1947 (the vote was 33 to 13, with 10 abstentions).
The UN Palestine Commission reported to the Security Council on 16 February 1948: "Organized efforts are being made by strong Arab elements inside and outside Palestine to prevent the implementation of the Assembly's plan of partition and to thwart its objectives by threats and acts of violence, including armed incursions into Palestinian territory...
UN Secretary-General Trygve Lie termed this act "the first armed aggression which the world had seen since the end of the [Second World] War." The Arab League actually included rejection of resolution 181 as a formal justification for its invasion, the first blatant breach of the UN Charter.

 Jerusalem in International Diplomacy
General Assembly resolution 181 (II) was made null and void by the Arab States and the Palestinian leadership in the aftermath of its adoption on 29 November 1947.
For in fact, resolution 181 (II) was made irrelevant by the actions of the Arab States and the Palestinian leadership in 1948, whose refusal to accept the resolution altered the circumstances in the Middle East on which it was originally based.
The resurrection of resolution 181 (II) by the PLO is a transparent effort to belatedly derive benefit from a resolution which the Palestinian leadership itself violently rejected 50 years ago.

 Jerusalem History
The 1947 UN proposal for internationalizing Jerusalem as a "corpus separatum," under UN General Assembly Resolution 181 (II), was only a non-binding recommendation which was rejected by the Palestinian Arabs and the Arab states by the use of force.
UN Security Council Resolution 242 of November 1967, which began as a British draft resolution, did not even mention Jerusalem and did not insist on a full withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines in the resolution's operative language (only a withdrawal from "territories" to "secure and recognized boundaries").
Resolution 242, which was adopted unanimously by the UN Security Council, served as the basis of UN Security Council Resolution 338 of October 1973, that formally launched the Arab-Israeli peace process and continued to provide the only agreed basis for the 1978 Camp David Agreements and the 1991 Madrid Peace Conference.

To solve the problem of the future of Palestine which was under British mandate, the General Assembly of the United Nations decided in its Resolution 181 of 29 November 1947 to divide the territory of Palestine as follows:
Authorizes the Secretary General to reimburse travel and subsistence appropriate in the circumstances, and to provide the Commission with the necessary staff to assist in carrying out the functions assigned to the Commission by the General Assembly.

 Role of the United Nations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The General Assembly failed to decide on a Statute of Jerusalem, and turned down a proposal submitted at the decisive hour before the Mandate lapsed for a temporary trusteeship regime of the city.
Although UN Resolution 181 is still sometimes cited when it is advantageous to the pro-Arab Palestinian position, the State of Israel has consistently maintained that the Partition Resolution became null and void when it was rejected by the Arab side in 1947.
Unfortunately the UN was often subverted by a coalition of third-world countries, Soviet client states, pro-Arab and anti-Semitic forces who could use actions against Israel as a proxy for stabs against the United States and its democratic allies.

 [No title]
The idea of the 'Jewish State' as represented in UN resolutions is diametrically opposed the idea of the 'Jewish State' in the political Zionist sense of the term.
It took the UN by far too long to realize that political Zionism is a form of racism representing a blatant violation of the norms of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the standards of international law.
to enforce compliance with international conventions and UN resolutions and apply the standards international law on all parties involved with the Israeli- Palestinian conflict, first and foremost the Government of the State of Israel, the party in the most blatant violation thereof.

 Heretics' almanac: The dubious legacy of UN GA resolution 181
Today is the anniversary of the UN vote on resolution 181, which approved the partition of the western part Palestine into a predominately Jewish state and a predominately Arab state.
Conventional wisdom holds that UN General Assembly Resolution 181 was instrumental in the formation of the State of Israel.
As it is, the legacy of resolution 181 reflects the shortcomings of the UN itself.

 MidEast Web - Documents and History - Partition Plan of 1947
After considerable debate, the United Nations General Assembly decided on partition of Palestine into Jewish and Arab states, with Jerusalem to be an internationalized city.
Resolution 181 also declared Jerusalem to be a corpus separatum - a separate body, to be run under an international UN administration.
The status of Jerusalem as a corpus separatum was reiterated in UN General Assembly Resolution 303 of December 9, 1949, even though the UN supervised armistice agreements determined that Jerusalem would remain divided between Jordan and Israel.

 Jerusalem in International Diplomacy
Clearly, there was a decision to ignore or dismiss many of the past public Palestinian statements on Jerusalem based on UN General Assembly Resolution 181 or claims to western Jerusalem outlined in the previous sections, that were part of the public record.
The Resolution must be implemented in full on the Palestinian territories....Why did you not ask Egypt during Camp David '78 to give up an inch of Sinai?" Arafat also used Islamic argumentation before American negotiators: "Jerusalem is not a Palestinian city only, it is an Arab, Islamic, and Christian one.
The "general principle" put forward was that "Arab areas are Palestinian and Jewish areas are Israeli." This principle of assigning sovereignty was to be applied to the Old City, as well.

The UN appointed a committee, the UNSCOP, composed of representatives from several states.
The UN General Assembly largely accepted UNSCOP's proposals, though they made some adjustments to the boundaries between the two states proposed by it.
For their part, for two decades after the UN partition plan was first implemented, every leader of every neighboring country promised to destroy Israel.

As a way out of the impasse, I proposed reviving UN General Assembly Resolution 181 of 29 November 1947, better known as the partition plan, which, though never implemented, enjoys international legitimacy, not least because it is the only document that consecrates Israel's title to statehood within the community of nations.
But with their acceptance of Security Council Resolution 242, of the principle of "peace in exchange for land" (meaning Arab land occupied in 1967) and their adoption of peace as a "strategic" objective, this is no longer an obstacle.
The whole world, not only the Camp David II triumvirate, is concerned with the fate of the Holy City, and the Palestinians should seize this opportunity to win the sympathy of wide sections of world public opinion and avoid acting in a way that could alienate it.

This is due to a subtle difference between the English and the French texts (both official) which refer to withdrawal "from territories occupied" and "des territoires occupés" (from the territories occupied) respectively.
Note: Resolution 338 is important today especially because it calls for the immediate implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 242 with a view to establish peace.

 Palestinians Reveal Long Term Plans (MEMRI) May, 1999
Since the signing of the Wye Agreement, the Palestinian leadership has attempted to strengthen UN General Assembly Resolution 181 the 1947 Partition Resolution.
Over the last five months, Resolution 181 has been transformed from a marginal demand that was only discussed in local forums in the Palestinian Authority's areas, to the centerpiece of Palestinian diplomacy in the UN and around the world.
Therefore, the Palestinian leadership accepts the internationalization of Jerusalem as a temporary act until it is transferred to the Palestinians: "It is essential [first of all] to release Jerusalem from the Israeli claws...
