Palestine impasse

The Sidney Morning Herald,
Venerdi, 26 marzo 1948, p. 2 e 3


At this season the thoughts of Christians the world over are turned towards the Holy Land, saddened to see it torn by a bitter strife which threatens to blaze up into full-scale war. In Palestine itself the picture is one of increasingly bloody conflict, so that the British forces have been obliged this week to resort to tanks and field artillery in their efforts to keep order. At Lake Success there are confusion and vacillation. Only Britain’s fixity of purpose in withdrawing from the country stands out clearly, and the (?) has been set upon the Government’s policy now that the House of Commons has passed the bill to terminate the British mandate on May 15.

In spite of the long notice which Britain has given of her intentions, the problem posed by this withdrawal is as far from solution as ever. When the partition plan for Palestine was passed by the General Assembly of the United Nations in November – chiefly as the result of American insistence – the Commission set up to carry out the scheme quickly came to the conclusion that an international force would be needed to keep the peace. But the Security Council has been unable to decide on such a course, nor has any practicable alternative been brought for- ward for the effective policing and administration of the country.

No fresh light has been thrown on this difficulty by the eleventh-hour American pro- posal to postpone partition and establish a temporary trusteeship. While a logical beginning, this step could not of itself “maintain peace and afford Arabs and Jews an opportunity to reach agreement on Palestine's future."

Such fumbling in the councils of UNO is tragic when time is so desperately short. Britain's mandate ends in seven weeks, and all her troops are to be withdrawn within four months, yet no authority has been nominated to succeed her. The Arabs plainly do not intend to allow themselves to be caught at a strategic disadvantage, and if the Jews carry out their proposal to establish, by unilateral action, a national State in Palestine it can hardly fail to bring a violent reaction. Without prompt and decisive action, it is difficult to sec how large-scale warfare can be averted.

Palestine crisis: war may resume

The Sidney Morning Herald,
Mercoledi, 7 luglio 1948, p. 1 e 3

LONDON, July 6 (A.A.P.). – The Government of Israel, in rejecting the peace plan of the UNO mediator, Count Bernadotte, said his suggestions did not take into account the “effecive establishment of a sovereign State of Israel within the area assigned to it in the UNO Assembly’s resolution”. (See page 3.)

Israel Rejects Peace Proposals.
From Our Staff Correspondent And A.A.P.

LONDON, July 6. - Correspondents believe a resumption of fighting in Palestine next Friday, when the month’s truce ends, is almost inevitable. In Tel Aviv last night, the Israel State Council told the UNO mediator, Count Folke Bernadotte, that his peace plans for Palestine were unacceptable. The Arabs have already rejected Count Bernadotte’s plans, but the Secretary of the Arab League, Azzam Pasha, said to-day that peace negotiations would continue “under certain conditions”.


The military committee of the Arab League to-day turned down Count Bernadotte'’s plan to extend the truce. Count Bernadotte will meet the League ’s inner council tomorrow. Reuters messages from Transjordan say both sides are preparing to resume battle. He adds that while the present truce has been in force the Arab States have tightened their unity and the Jews appear to have built up their arms supplies. These include two British tanks stolen from Haifa airport. Yesterday, Amman and Damascus tightened air-raid precautions after reports that the Jews had received at least two Flying Fortresses from U S surplus war stocks.

At Nice yesterday French police detained five U. S. Stinson Norseman aircraft and their crews because their papers were not in order. The police acted on instructions from the U. S. Embassy. The planes had been converted into light bombers and carried extra petrol tanks. Police said the pilots admitted they were going to Palestine. An lsraeli communique yesterdav alleged that Egyptian forces shelled the Jewish settlement of Kfar Darom, in south Palestine last Friday night.

A report from Istanbul, Turkey, to-day said three cruisers of the U. S. Sixth Task Fleet had left Istanbul suddenly for the Mediterranean a day ahead of schedule-following the receipt of messages about the Palestine situation.
