This article focuses on the history related to creation of the nation of Israel. In November 1947, the United Nations General Assembly voted to partition British-controlled Palestine into two states: one for Jews and one for Arabs. The Jewish state took up more than half of Palestine, including most of the region's coast. Jews supported the U.N. plan, but Arabs rejected it. The Arabs argued that because Palestinian Arabs made up the majority of Palestine's population, they should retain more than half of the area, if not all of it.
