Reference Materials - Blood Brothers by Elias Chacour - August 10th

The first three postings in this section were among the 13 Reference Materials posted on this bulletin board for the 10/14/2009 meeting --

(A) the text of the 8/31/1947 Report of the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP) comprising 8 full pages in the 9/9/1947 New York Times and, inter alia, detailing precisely who owned each plot of land in Palestine, Jew or Arab.

(B) the text of United Nations Resolution 181 of 11/29/1947 which provided for the partition of the Palestine Mandate into a “Jewish State” and an “Arab State” -- each of which was a checker board because it reflected the UNSCOP survey of which plots were owned by Jews and which plots were owned by Arabs.

(C) the text of the Encyclopaedia Brittanica = The Coming of the Cold War, 1945–57 » The Cold War in the Middle East and Asia » The Creation of Israel (the last sentence of the Encyclopaedia Brittanica article is the authority for Q&A-14 for the 10/14/2009 meeting and Q&A-7 of the current Short Quiz that 567,000 Jews were expelled from Arab countries following the 1948 Arab-Israeli War for Independence which is roughly comparable to the number of Arabs that were displaced in that conflict from what became Israel).
