Karen Stahl-Don (MA, LLM), an associate of the Legal Grounds Campaign, has written a paper, “The Legal Invalidity of Resolution 181,” which she presented at a conference in The Hague this summer.
While claims are made, to this day, that this 1947 U.N. General Assembly resolution, commonly referred to as “the partition plan,” calls for a Jewish and an Arab state in Palestine, Stahl-Don makes clear that this is a simplification, which seriously misrepresents the intent of the resolution.
Stahl-Don’s clarification is important because Palestinian Arabs erroneously claim they have a “right” to a state based on this resolution.
What Resolution 181 actually called for was an Economic Union of two states, with “a myriad of conditions and requirements,” including shared ports and transportation systems and much more. Moreover, both states were to be democratic.
