Example text

Most of the other ministers supported the Cabinet’s decision proclaiming Jerusalem Israel’s capital. A few were hesitant (Eliezer Kaplan [Finance, and Commerce and Industry] and David Remez [Communications and Transport]). And one dissented—Sharett, the Foreign Minister. All three were from BenGurion’s Mapai party! ) The Foreign Minister cabled his resignation from New York immediately after the Cabinet decision: he felt responsible for Israel’s setback at the Assembly, which, he acknowledged, he had not anticipated; and his view that Israel should not act directly against a UN General Assembly resolution had been rejected by Ben-Gurion and the Israel Cabinet.
