For 19 years Yerushalayim was a city divided, cut in two by the 1948 armistice line. After Israel’s War of Independence on November 30, 1948, at the time of the official cease-fire, Moshe Dayan sat with Abdallah Tell and UN mediators, slicing up Yerushalayim.

Indeed, virulent anti-Jewish terrorism in the British Mandate period had even taken place many years before Israel's statehood.
