In 1947 the UN Partition Plan allocated the Jewish population in Palestine 55 per cent of the country, including much of the best agricultural land. Unsurprisingly, this division was rejected by the Palestinian population and by neighbouring Arab states. Jerusalem was intended as a ‘corpus separatum’ or ‘separated body’ by the Partition Plan, which conferred a special status on it due to its shared religious significance.
