vh: "that a mandate is not a precursor to a state as in the case of syria labanon iraq and others carved from the ottoman empire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Victor is unique amongst zionists in acknowledging that the Mandate for Palestine was merely one of a number of similar Mandates. Victor is correct that the Mandates (all of them) were intended to lead to sovereign states. The Mandate for Palestine was, however, unique in that it contained two additional provisions: 1) a "Jewish national home" "in" Palestine 2) everything east of the Jordan river was exempt from (1). Read the Mandate text: There was supposed to be a (provisional) state called "Palestine", and it was ALSO to serve as a sanctuary for Jews. But the key word used in the text was "ALSO" i.e. the Mandate didn't commit the Mandatory to establish that (eventual) sovereign state of Palestine as a "Jewish state", but merely that Jews could come and live there.
