The Balfour Declaration stated British support for "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people." This was rather vague but certainly did not suggest giving the whole of Palestine to the Jews, only a part of it. It also stated support for "the civil and religious rights of the existing non-Jewish communities." "WRITE ASGAIN WHEN YOU HAVE STUDIED THE SUBJECT"
