Partition - The United Nations Special Commission on Palestine (UNSCOP) recommended that Palestine be divided into an Arab state and a Jewish state. The commission called for Jerusalem to be put under international administration The UN General Assembly adopted this plan on Nov. 29, 1947 as UN Resolution (GA 181), owing to support of both the US and the Soviet Union, and in particular, the personal support of US President Harry S. Truman. Many factors contributed to Truman's decision to support partition, including domestic politics and intense Zionist lobbying, no doubt. Truman wrote in his diary, however, "I think the proper thing to do, and the thing I have been doing, is to do what I think is right and let them all go to hell."
The Jews accepted the UN decision, but the Arabs rejected it. The resolution divided the land into two approximately equal portions in a complicated scheme with zig-zag borders (see map at right and see Partition Map and detailed partition map of UNSCOP Proposal and final map: UN Palestine Partition Plan Map - 1947). The intention was an economic union between the two states with open borders. At the time of partition, slightly less than half the land in all of Palestine was owned by Arabs, slightly less than half was "crown lands" belonging to the state, and about 8% was owned by Jews or the Jewish Agency. There were about 600,000 Jews in Palestine, almost all living in the areas allotted to the Jewish state or in the internationalized zone of Jerusalem, and about 1.2 million Arabs. The allocation of land by Resolution 181 was intended to produce two areas with Jewish and Arab majorities respectively. Jerusalem and environs were to be internationalized. The relatively large Jewish population of Jerusalem and the surroundings, about 100,000, were geographically cut off from the rest of the Jewish state, separated by a relatively large area, the "corridor," allotted to the Palestinian state. The corridor included the populous Arab towns of Lod and Ramla and the smaller towns of Qoloniyeh, Emaus, Qastel and others that guarded the road to Jerusalem. (Click for Large Detailed Map)

Most of the world supports Israel over the nations of Islam who want to destroy Israel, because most of the world sees Islam as evil.
Muslims continuously prove that they are violent uncivilized people who will stop at nothing to get their way. Every where Muslims go they spread mis-content and violence.
Jewish people have their downsides, and tend to be mistrusted by many, but they do not spread the violence that Muslims do
The propagandist keep claiming that this guy was mis-quoted, well, if this is true, you should be able to provide a direct link to the source that disproves the alleged statements as you claim.

The US doesnt dictate in the ME we are supporting the people to have free rights while others reject it and want to run democracy and moderate muslims out of the ME.

All radical Islamists hate Jews. They also hate Americans for their way of life and supporting the Jewish state of Israel.

It's one of the prophecies of Islam that before the end time, Both Prophet Jesus and Imam Mahdi (Hidden Shiite 12th Imam) will reappear again (resurrected) and fill the earth with peace and justice, it's quite notable that Shiite and Christians ideology about end time is quite resembling....
And at the same time anti-Christ would appear and Prophet Jesus would kill him and it would end the atrocity in the world. and anti-christ is per our belief is going to be a 'Jew' the one Israelis deem as their Messiah ....!!!!
