Knesset to reenact fateful United Nations vote that led to Israel's creation





Usually a scene of discord and strife – the Knesset soon plans to lend its halls to far more joyous fanfare.
Essentially the event that will kick-off the celebrations commemorating Israel's 60's birthday, the Knesset plans to reenact the historic United Nations partition vote that led to the creation of a Jewish state.

On November 29th, exactly six decades since the event, Israel's parliament will host the 1947 vote on the partition of western British Mandate Palestine into two states, Jewish and Arab. Most of the area under British governance had already been partitioned off as Transjordan decades earlier.
