Israel and The World 1-26-10 Midterm will be emailed or given next week 1948 war – Israel war of independence In the arab world its called the 1948 war or the nafba? (the disaster or the catastrophe) Review from Last Week Effects of the 1948 War The partition resolution is passed by UN Zionists accept the partition It gave them the original area that was suppose to be included for jewish settlement included what is now Transjordan, Jerusalem and west gaza.

Invaded by 5 arab states… war lasts from may 15 th 1948 to January 11 th 1949 – results, the jews manage to defend themselves and they end up with territorial changes, the jews end up with 30% of land than was allotted to them by the partition resolution.
