An Unfinished Chapter

The above chapter does not fit the title. It does not fully go into the dealings that the Jewish delegation to the UN had with the Soviet delegation. In another documentary Abba Eban is shown saying that when the Soviets were with you they were with you all the way and they were so disposed on this issue and Eban used to be with Soviet delegate Andrei Gromieko in 1947-48 when he would receive instructions from the Kremlin (Stalin) on what to do the next day. I wonder what the domestic Communists of Jewish origin were saying during this period because prior to it they were calling Zionism "Jewish bourgeoisie nationalism" or some such moronic term. The Freiheit crowd must have eaten a lot of crow.
