    Israel was not "created" by the UN. The UN proposed a partition plan which was rejected by the arabs (rightly or wrongly) and a war was fought and Israel won. This is the ONLY reason Israel exists. Compare and contrast with Jordan. Part of the Palestinian mandate in 1919, despite the mandate explicitly saying that Britain should not prejudice the borders there split off over 2/3 to give as a consolation prize to their Hashimite puppets who then lord it over the Palestinian majority. They then conquer the West Bank and annex it for 19 years with the SOLE reason it is not Jordanian being that it was conquered by Israel when Jordan attacked Israel in 1967. Lebanon was a creation of the french specifically and solely designed to give THEIR Maronite puppets control over a shia population. Syria was not "created" when the French Mandate came to an end. It was conquered from the Vichy in 1943. These are undisputable facts. Read a book
