Truman Refuses to Recognize Israel as a Jewish State

 

 

 

Below is a photo copy of the draft recognition letter of Israel by US government as amended by President Truman. The application for recognition referred to "the Jewish state". Truman deleted this and gave recognition to "the new state of Israel". The draft was amended by hand and signed and dated by Truman.

 

Please distribute as widely as you can, particularly among student supporters of justice for Palestinians.
