I recommend "Fateful Triangle" by Noam Chomsky
and "Israel/Palestine How to end the war of 1948" by Tanya Reinhart
Noam Chomsky is an American Jew and Tanya Reinhart is an Israeli Jew.
It is the Zionists that pushed for the radical idea that the land be divided up so that a "pure" racially established state of Jews could be established. They didn't want to live as equal citizens as is expected of all religions in America. But the division was only considered temporary by them since their goal was and is to take over all of Palestine.
The 1947 proposal was not the first land division scheme, the Peel Commission suggested a partition plan in 1937. Also if you look into it, the Zionists had no intention of accepting any fair partition.
As Ben-Gurion himself said in 1937, "No Zionist can forgo the smallest portion of Eretz Israel." (see p162 Fateful Triangle)
You may be interested to know the background of the May 1948 unilateral declaration by 33% of the population, imposing their will on 67% of the non-Jews.
In Nov 1947 the UN made a recommendation for a three-way partition of Palestine into a Jewish State, an Arab State and a small internationally administered zone that would have included Jerusalem. This was a recommendation by the UN General Assembly and General Assembly recommendations have no force, they are only recommendations. In fact Israel is the greatest rejecter of General Assembly resolutions by the way. When the recommendation was made, war broke out between the Palestinians and the Zionists who had been planning on taking over and had amassed much more arms. By May 1948, when the Jews (33%) unilaterally declared "the state of Israel", 300,000 Palestinians had already been ethnically cleansed (forced from their homes or had fled the fighting) by the Zionists and the Zionists had stolen a region well beyond the area of the original Jewish State that was proposed by the UN. Then, after the Zionists had taken control of this much larger part of the region and hundreds of thousands of civilians had been forced out, "Israel" was attacked by its neighbors.
In 1967 the Jews attacked and took over the remaining part of Palestine with the intent
ion of keeping it. All through the supposed "peace process" they have been illegally building on the occupied territories.
<< I think they should go back to the original UN proposed boarders >>
You seem sincere, what you propose would be viciously fought against by the Zionists. (although I think it would be more just) No one suggests what you propose, they propose less than what you proposes since they all accept the original land grab in 1948. What has been proposed is to go back to pre-1967 boarders. The fact is that nearly the entire world and most Americans agree with a plan like that but it has been rejected by the Zionists. email me if you would like more details.
<< Terrorism by Jews can't be discounted. >>
the problem is much of the terrorism goes unreported here in America. I am talking about terrorism that is clearly seen as the "classic" terrorism. The kind that is claimed against the Palestinians in general. Just recently, Jews bombed a school targeting children. (not the military by the way) and it isn't the first time Jews have targeted children with their terrorism (not that children happened to be there, these attacks have been targeted at children at the schools).
There is a pattern of violence by Jewish terrorists of targeting children specifically (and a pattern of it going unreported in America) For years, like the murder of Palestinian girl, Intissar al-Atar, in a school yard. When the Jewish terrorist got a seven-month suspended sentence the illegal "settlers" in the courtroom broke out in song and dance. p473 Fateful Triangle.
These Jewish terrorists are subsidized (living on land illegally and in violation of the Geneva Convention and are not pursued by "the law" the same way other terrorists are) and they are ON TOP of the violence, the maiming and killing of thousands, against the Palestinians. The Israeli military have been targeting children and maiming them for life. Dramatic examples of other crimes go UNREPORTED here in America.
She watched helplessly as her Mother bled to death for over an hour as Israeli Soldiers ignored her father's cries to let the ambulance through to save his dying wife. See the Israeli describe his mission as "purification"! See the video that American TV News Editors decided you shouldn't see. (at a Canadian web site)
The fact this video was even show in Israel was itself a news story in Israel. It made headlines. Here in America, news editors pretend it didn't exist.
A Jewish State covering 56.47% of Mandatory Palestine (excluding Jerusalem) with a population of 498,000 Jews and 325,000 Arabs;
* An Arab State covering 43.53% of Mandatory Palestine (excluding Jerusalem), with 807,000 Arab inhabitants and 10,000 Jewish inhabitants;
* An international trusteeship regime in Jerusalem, where the population was 100,000 Jews and 105,000 Arabs.
The partition plan also laid down:
* A guarantee of the rights of minorities and religious rights, including free access to and the preservation of Holy Places;
* A constitution of an Economic Union between the two states: custom union, joint monetary system, joint administration of main services, equal access to water and energy resources.
