Post 48 - State of Israel – UN recognition May 1949 - Role of Arab states? o Boycott? Raids? o Rhetoric?  Lot of talk, not helping people directly (i.e. refuges) o Loss of Palestinian agency (lose their voice, Arab states becoming “spokespeople”) - Role of UN? o Recognition of Israel, UNRWA (humanitarian aid), PCC (Palestine Conciliation Commission), UNTSO (Truth Supervisor Organization – ineffective) o Having a hard time making progress and being effective, questionable legitimacy o Unable to implement - Role of Western states? o Tripartite Declaration of 1950 – US, France, Britain
