officialization of war and peace in the Middle East

In April 2007 I blogged about my stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and ere since this issue has remained close to my heart and mind, and has indeed remained central to world politics (see http://winstoninwonderland.blogspot.com/2007/04/israeli-palestinian-conflict-today-i.html )

Several years later -- six years later, to be precise -- I am stumbling upon the press release that officialized war and peace in the Middle East. Below is an image of President Truman's original Press Release that indicated prompt de jure recognition for the permanent government that would be elected in Israel.
