Two separate developments for today's class. The document reading looks at the recommendations section from NSC-68, which produced the militarization of the Cold War. Meanwhile, the birth of Israel is discussed in the Hahl book, as the UN proposed partition of the British mandate in Palestine (1947) gave way to war between the Arab states and Israel, followed by a new map created by a 1949 armistice.
