The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is observed by the United Nations on November 29 each year, a date chosen because of its significance to the Palestinian people. On that day in 1947, the General Assembly adopted resolution 181 (II), which came to be known as the Partition Resolution. That resolution provided for the establishment in Palestine of a 'Jewish State' and an 'Arab State,' with Jerusalem as a corpus separatum under a special international regime. Of the two States to be created under this resolution, only one – Israel – has so far come into being.
