The United Nations recognized the historical right of the Jews to Israel according to Article 80 (Chapter 12) that confirmed the continuity of the guidelines of the League of Nations (1920). According to the article, the UN did not recognize “out of the blue” the right of Israel to exist, but ratified and validated a previous right recognized by the League of Nations. An advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice from June/21/1971 explained: “the last decision from the Assembly of the League of Nations and Article 80, Paragraph 1 of the UN Charter preserved the obligations of the Mandates”. The International Court of Justice has always recognized that the Mandate survived the disappearance of the League of Nations. When in 1949 Israel requested to be accepted as a member of the United Nations, this organization did not establish that the Jews “had rights” since that was already established in Article 80 (Chapter 12). The process to be accepted as a member of the UN involves the candidate being a state that follows the premises of the Montevideo Convention (established borders, determined population, effective government and the capacity to establish international relations). Such guidelines are verified by the Security Council and later the UN General Assembly validates the acceptance with 2/3 of the votes. On May/5/1949, the State of Israel became member number 59 of the United Nations, with 37 countries voting in favor of its inclusion, 13 against and 9 abstentions. The country that proposed with more vehemence the acceptance of Israel was the Soviet Union because at the time it expected that the socialist State of Israel would become part of its block.
