    You started off pretty well. However, let us recap the British history in the middle east and their love for the underdogs. 1. The Belfour resolution - Britain never implemented it. 2. The Mule Corps - the jewish soldiers residing in Israel who fought for the British in WWI. Instead of rewarding them - the British created Trans-Jordan out of the land that under the Belfour resolution was to be Israel. I'm sure that these decisions were motivated by the love for the underdog - or more honestly by Whitehall's decision to stick with the Arabs because they had oil. 3. Turning away numerous ships from Israel/mandate before the start of WWII and during the war - well knowing that the jews were headed back to concentration camps. Another example of supporting the underdogs. 4. Preventing jews from going to the mandate after WWII and putting them into camps all over the Europe and specifically on Cyprus to appease the Arabs; who supported Hitler and sold British military secrets to Rommel.
