November 14, 1963

“”On November 14, 1963, The Jerusalem Post reported on the rival resolutions on the Palestine Arab refugees submitted to the UN, one by three Muslim states and one by the US.  They were to be matched by a third resolution prepared by countries friendly to Israel, calling for direct talks between Israel and the Arab States.

UN secretary-general U Thant had appointed Lawrence Michelmore of the US as commissioner-general of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine.
