an entity must have full control over all the territories they wish to declare as Sovereign. It is why the British Mandate had to end BEFORE either party could declare. The Jewish People's Council HAD to wait until the British Mandate ended. The East Timorese had to wait until Indonesia ended it's occupation. The Palestinians have ALWAYS been under someone else's rule or occupation. Under Plan Dalet, Jewish forces were already controlling territories slated for the Arabic State by May 14th 1948. There have been Israeli forces in control of territories slated for the new Arab State ever since.
