The League of nations was 52 nations.<quoted text>You really let me cry with your league of nations. Who was the League of Nations. Mostly the imperial countries Britain, France, Italy who destroyed the Ottoman Empire. They cut the cake between them. Who gave them that right? Themselves. Remember Lawrence of Arabia who thought that he was fighting for the Arabs and found that he had been screwed. When he protested he was liquidated. The fool had done his job. The rest was for the thieves. Chaim Weizman said in 1917: "If we do not get it (the Balfour declaration) we will destroy the British empire like we have destroyed the Russian Empire. " Jabotinsky said the same. So he got the Balfour declaration. Who gave Balfour the right to give somebody else land away?
Lawrence of Arabia you speak of tried to help create a Jewish country in the whole of Palestine including Jordan in the late 1910's. Read the Weitzman - Faisel paris peace agreement 1919 he was involved from what i have read.
Jews helped the British more than the Arabs helped the British and there were plenty of Arabs fighting for the Ottomans also.
You keep mentioning apparent quotes it would help if you had a source as many that you and others post here were never said.
Balfour declaration on its own was nothing. Only once it was incorporated into the Mandate for Palestine did it become legally binding.
You cannot pick and choose when you want to use the UN or legal aspects to make a point; and than turn around and deny their right to make these decisions.
I never denied it was unfair to a portion of the population but at least half of the Palestinians in 1948 were not on the land for more than 100's of years. They came from other lands just as the Jews mostly did.
The Mandate clearly gives the local non-Jews civil and religious rights but there is no mention of political rights.
