In 1947, Great Britain relinquished to the UN the power to make decisions relating to the status of "Palestine". The General Assembly appointed a special committee to deal with the matter. The committee proposed partitioning the land into two states, a Jewish state and an Arab state. On November 29, 1947, the UN General Assembly voted to accept that partition plan resolution, 33 to 13. To this day, 68 years later, Not a single Arab state has accepted Israel as the Jewish State.
