Palestinians were correct to reject 1947 partition plan
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Nov. 30, 2012

 
      “On November 29, 1947, the Palestinian nation was not happy. It was very sad on hearing the partition resolution number 181, and it refused the offer (to establish an Arab state next to a Jewish state. –Ed.) and cried out against it and against those who helped approved it and who helped its implementation later on. The Palestinian position back then was correct, because partitioning historical Palestine was based on the ominous Balfour Declaration and announced the formation of a settlement entity, the State of Israel, at the expense of Palestinian Arab national rights.”
