  1. Palestine–Israel maps activity Palestine and neighbouring Arab nations in 1947

  2. The United Nations plan for two states in Palestine (1947) • Palestine used to belong to the Palestinian Arabs. • As the number of Jewish immigrants grew after 1945, violence broke out between Palestinians and Jews. • In 1947, the United Nations voted to split Palestine into two new countries: • Palestine (yellow on map) • Israel (orange on map) • All the surrounding nations are Arab states. Israel accepted the UN plan and declared itself a new nation in May 1948. Ever since then it has been accepted as a nation by almost every other country in the world. Palestine refused to accept the UN plan. It believed there should be a single Palestinian state. There is still no country called “Palestine”.
