THE TEXT OF THE MANDATE OF THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS SHOWS THE JEWS CLAIM TO PALESTINE

Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have also agreed
that the Mandatory
should be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally
made on November 2nd, 1917, by the Government of His Britannic Majesty,
and adopted by the said Powers, in favour of the establishment in
Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people;
Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have selected His Britannic Majesty as
the Mandatory for Palestine; …

 

Article 2.
The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such
political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the
establishment of the Jewish national home,
as laid down in the preamble,
and the development of self-governing institutions, and also for
safeguarding the civil and religious rights of all the inhabitants of
Palestine, irrespective of race and religion.
Article 4.
An appropriate Jewish agency shall be recognised as a public body for the
purpose of advising and co-operating with the Administration of Palestine
in such economic, social and other matters as may affect
the establishment
of the Jewish national home and the interests of the Jewish population in
Palestine,

and, subject always to the control of the Administration, to

assist and take part in the development of the country.
The Zionist organisation, so long as its organisation and constitution are
in the opinion of the Mandatory appropriate, shall be recognised as such
agency. It shall take steps in consultation with His Britannic Majesty’s
Government to secure the cooperation of all Jews who are willing to assist
in the establishment of the Jewish national home.

 

Article 5.
The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory
shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of,
the Government of any foreign Power
Article 6.
The Administration of Palestine, while ensuring that the rights and
position of other sections of the population are not prejudiced,
shall
facilitate Jewish immigration under suitable conditions and shall
encourage, in co-operation with the Jewish agency. referred to in Article
4, close settlement by Jews, on the land,
including State lands and waste
lands not required for public purposes.
Clearly, the Jewish claim on Palestine is not only recognized, but specific measures are stipulated as
to how to ensure that the right is transformed into a reality, especially with regard to immigration,
settlement and soliciting help from world Jewry.  In contrast, there is no reference whatever to
political rights of any other group, such as Arabs.  In fact, in the entire mandate text there is no
reference to “Palestinians”, only to “non Jews”.
Of course, the “International community” was well aware of non-Jewish residents in Palestine, and,
indeed, ensured that their “civil and religious rights” be enshrined in the text but no political rights,
such as sovereigny, are mentioned.  It was not deemed unjust to expect the Arabs to accept a Jewish
National Home in a tiny corner of the Middle East, when huge Arab lands had just been liberated by
the Allies from the Ottoman yoke, and when three new Arab kingdoms (Iraq, Transjordan and Saudi
Arabia) were in the process of being born.  This point of “injustice” was addressed many times by
Churchill, Balfour and Col. Richard Meinertzhagen.
The bottom line regarding this point is that the “international community” and Britain in particular
undertook the creation of a Jewish National Home in Palestine, and hence there is no justification for

creating a second Palestinian-Arab state on part of this land.

[It must be remembered that this area of land, Palestine, including present day Jordan which was in the intention of the League of Nations leaders to give to the Jews was a tiny piece of land when it is compared to the total land area which the Arabs were to be given.

This must be understood in the context of Islam and its urgent need to expand and conquer the world.]

Very few people today understand these questions even from the simple geographical level and in that ignorance antisemitism is promoted
