It appeared that Bevin was in fact doing what Begin accused him of; that is, he was engaged in plotting a virtually total collapse of order in Palestine, with or without partition, to justify continued British intervention.

Finally, after some hectic maneuvering by the Zionists and their supporters to influence the General Assembly vote, on November 29, 1947, the proposal for a partition of Palestine passed by a vote of 33 to 13 with ten abstentions. In effect, the United Nations had given its blessing to a Jewish ministate in Palestine.
