UN Resolution on Negev

40th Council
November 1948

The Fortieth General Assembly of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations regards with deep distress the action of the United Nations mediator in ordering the establishment of a vast no man's land in the Negev and in ordering the establishment of the Israeli troops from that region.

In the name of justice and desperate human need we ask the President of the United States to insist, through our representatives of the United Nations, that this order be withdrawn.
