“November 29, 1947, marks the classic turning-point in the fortunes of Israel,” Ambassador Eban said. “Before that date we achieved no victories. Since that date we have suffered no defeats. Before the establishment of the state of Israel, we were supplicants and mendicants before the civilized conscience of mankind. The United Nations decision of November 29, 1947, marked the emergence of the Jewish people from anonymity and its entry and full acceptance into the world family of nations.”
