The final vote on that historic Saturday night was 33-13, with 13 abstentions.

In the current climate, it’s a sure bet the vote would go down in flames, along with the people who would benefit from passage.

That’s meant literally.

Article and video from Israel National News.

Israel worked to the last minute to win United Nations recognition in the historic vote on November 29, 1947. One eyewitness said that one delegate who promised to vote for Israel was pulled out of the men’s room.

Suzy Eban, wife of Abba Eban, who then was a liaison officer to the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine, related on a new Toldot Yisrael video how Israelis worked to gain the needed two-thirds majority for United Nations recognition as a state.

Realizing it lacked three votes, Israeli delegates focused on Haiti, Liberia and the Philippines. Suzy Eban revealed that at one point, an Israel delegate went to the men’s room. One South American country, whose name she did not reveal, had promised to vote for Israel.

She explained, “The Israeli delegate noticed his shoes under the door in the men’s room and said, ‘You promised to vote. They are voting now, I am here to bring you to the voting,’” which he did.

If this same vote would be taken today, my honest opinion is that the current administration of The United States would voice an emphatic “No”.

The rest of The UN would do the same as well.
