    Funding Information:
    Since the very beginning of 1948, owing to an escalation of violence between Jews and Arabs, a process of re-examination of US policy towards Palestine had taken place. The suggestion by the Department of State for a provisional trusteeship intending to postpone implementation of partition was supported by President Truman. The new plan was to transfer discussion of the Palestine question from the Security Council to the Trusteeship Council. But this was boycotted by the Soviet Union.28 In the period between 30 March to 14 May 1948, the US acted with determination in the Security Council to prevent implementation of the resolution of 29 November. However, the Soviet Union did all within its power to prevent the partition resolution from being altered.
