All-Arab Town Surrenders... 1948 Arab-Israeli War...



Item # 651881

May 18, 1948

THE RALEIGH TIMES, North Carolina, May 18, 1948  The front page has: "ALL-ARAB TOWN SURRENDERS," and: "Jews Claim Victory At Acre." Both articles provide details regarding the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. However, the prime content within this issue is: "Reds Recognize State Of Israel," which tells of Russia becoming the *second world power to formally recognize the new State of Israel. See images for details. Other news of the day is found throughout.

Note: While the article states Russia is the 2nd country to recognize Israel (2nd to the U.S.), the U.S. would not formalize their recognition until 8 1/2 months later, making Russia the 1st country to do so officially.

Complete in 10 pages, some mildewing and dampstaining, slightly rough left spine (see images).
