THE dream and the ultimate operative goal of Israel's Labour leaders was the ‘normalization’ of the Jewish people through the creation of a ‘normal’ state. For Moshe Sharett, such normalization meant, among other things, that Israel would become a recognized member of the ‘family of nations’, which would involve Israel's membership of the UN, friendly relations with the powers, and especially with its neighbours. By early March 1949 it looked as if Sharett's long-term campaign towards the first end was approaching its successful conclusion. When Israel's renewed request for UN membership was brought before the Security Council, the Israeli delegation as well as the embassy in Washington had waged an immense diplomatic campaign intended to secure the admission.
