Civil War in Palestine, 1947-1948

Civil War in Palestine, 1947-1948
The UN General Assembly (and the Jewish leadership in Palestine) voted to accept the UNSCOP partition plan in November 1947. The Arabs though rejected it. The outcome of this conflict was the first wave of Palestinian refugees, which remains one of the central problems in the region today. Students investigate this stage of the conflict through political cartoons and a 5-minute video clip.
