With what words did Abba Eban express himself, after leading the successful UN
vote in New York on November 29, 1947 for partitioning Palestine into a Jewish
and an Arab state? Oddly enough, during the hour-long ride back to his hotel,
one of the most eloquent speakers in the world was completely
silent.Suzy Eban, the wife of the former Ambassador to the UN and
foreign minister, recalls sitting in the car in silence with her husband and
Moshe Sharett, who would eventually become prime minister.
