What territory comprised Jerusalem in the U.N. Partition Plan which assigned it the status of a corpus separatum, an internationalized city under British supervision?

As I have insisted, the claim that somehow Jerusalem’s current municipal boundaries have nothing to do with the historic Jerusalem and were somehow and illegal act of annexation of areas that didn’t truly belong to Jerusalem is a misrepresentation.

The U.N. conceived of Jerusalem of extending from just south of Ramallah to Bethlehem and from Motza east to almost where Maaleh Adumim is today.

Taken from an article in Al-HaMishmar, February 1, 1948:

“The composition of the population of the international state of the city of Jerusalem as of 1.1.1948″

Here’s the list of cities/villages included:

Jerusalem
Bethlehem
Bet Jalla
Bet Sahur
Abu-Dis
El-Maliha (Malcha)
Ein Karem
Silwan (HaShiloah)
El-Azariah
A-Tur
Tzur Bahar & Um-Tuba
Ramt Rachel
Bet Tz’fafa
Sharfat
Deir Yassin
Lifta
Shuafat
Issawiya
Motza
