The 1948 American Embargo on Arms to Palestine
Shlomo Slonim traces the initial imposition of America's 1948 embargo on arms for Palestine to State Department officials intent on minimizing any American role in implementing the partition plan earlier endorsed by President Truman. Even after Truman reversed State Department policy by his immediate recognition of Israel, the embargo was maintained intact throughout 1948. This was primarily in order to avoid a split with Britain over Middle East policy at the height of the cold war.
