The 1947 UN Partition Plan was an excellent plan.
Like cutting California in half to create a separate state for a flood of illegal Hispanic immigrants would be an excellent plan? I think it will be found insufficient nations supported the plan but US threats swayed them, particularly the Latin American countries. The very fact the UK abstained from voting shows something, namely, the post WW2 violence & illegality of the Zionist organisers; such as the King David Hotel bombing & sinking of the Jewish refugee boat Patria by those who would eventually become Israeli prime ministers.
The Jewish Brigade Group, formed as a unit within the British army in late 1944, worked with former partisans to help organize the Brihah (literally "escape"), the exodus of 250,000 Jewish refugees across closed borders from inside Europe to the coast in an attempt to sail for Palestine. The Mosad le-Aliyah Bet, an agency established by the Jewish leadership in Palestine, organized "illegal" immigration (Aliyah Bet) by ship. However, the British intercepted most of the ships.

It called for a Jewish state (Israel)
Based on the tenuous historical claims, this Jewish state should have probably been called 'Judah' (since the tribe of Judah split from the other ten tribes of Israel in about 1200 BC and the Kingdom of Israel ceased to exist in around 800BC). It might be a myth Jews were expelled by the Romans because Jews were having uprisings in Palestine up to the time of Islam (eg: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_re ... _Heraclius
). Jews voluntary left Judah (not Israel) during the Greek & Roman Empires and settled all around the Mediterranean doing business, at least according to Israeli Professor Schlomo Sand's book: http://www.rafapal.com/wp-content/uploa ... e-2009.pdf
. The idea of a new 'Israel' was probably something promoted by the Protestants who supported Zionism.
and an independent Arab state (Palestine) and then an international zone for the Jerusalem area.
Assuming the Plan was "unavoidable" (rather than "excellent"), yes, an international zone for the Jerusalem area was a good idea, which was probably why the Knesset was originally in Tel Aviv for some time; and which is a good reason for the US to not move their Embassy to Jerusalem. Moving the Embassy betrays the spirit of the original Partition Plan.
It was rejected by the Palestinians and the ensuing war broke out where Israel basically said to hell with the Palestinians and took it all.
I haven't studied this much but it is natural they would reject it, just as California & the other American states would reject partitioning California for Hispanics or NYC for Jews.
If only the Palestinians would have accepted that UN agreement, there would have been a Palestinian independent nation for 70 years now.
Its probably more complicated than that.
But this of course doesn't excuse the things Israel has done either during this past 70 years.
If this new UN resolution against Trump and Israel passes, it will be ignored by Israel and the U.S. just like all the other resolutions from the past from the UN (ordering withdrawal from occupied territories, etc).
Yes. More bullying, causing animosity.
