In 1947 the United Nations voted for partition—dividing the Land into Jewish and Arab sections. The Jews, fresh from the horror of the Holocaust, joyously accepted the small truncated state. To their reasoning, something was better than nothing. The Arabs refused. On May 14, 1948, Israel declared statehood and five Arab armies attacked the tiny, poorly armed nation.
In January, US President Donald Trump, in an effort to solve the 72-year-long conflict, introduced the “Deal of the Century.” History seems to be repeating itself as once again the Jewish leadership is saying “yes,” and the Palestinian leadership replies with a resounding “no.”
