To the Editor:
    Sixty-five years ago, the U.N. voted to create in what had been Mandate Palestine a Jewish State, an Arab State and the international enclave of Jerusalem. The Jews said yes, the Arabs said no and no one spoke for Jerusalem.  Time runs forward. The Jews now have a state, an educational system, a healthcare system and a voice in the councils of nations; the Arabs do not. The U.N. General Assembly can't undo the mistake of '47. But that's where the repairs must begin. Prime Minister Netanyahu has no more right to veto that progress than the Arabs had to veto the creation of Israel.
