Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews the nationality provisions of the United Nations Partition Plan of Palestine as a means to view the position of the international community regarding the future of Palestinian nationality at the end of the mandate. In legal terms, original and naturalized Palestinian citizens were equal nationals, regardless of their religion. In reality, these citizens were divided into two Palestinian peoples: Arab and Jewish. The Partition Plans principle on nationality in the future entities of Palestine was straight-forward. Palestinian citizens, irrespective of their religion, residing in the Arab State, would become citizens of that Arab State. The Partition Plan posed two exceptions to the international law rule: The first exception, the Plan conferred nationality on those foreigners who were residing in the assigned territories within the Arab State and the Jewish State. The second exception from the general principle was the recognition of the right of option.
