    d: "a tunisian arab pre-48 wants to immigrate to Palestine under the British mandate, on the grounds that he is an arab and has a legal entitlement. He will be refused as no such legal right exists" Nothing in the Mandate text said that the Mandatory Power *had* to refuse that Arab immigrant. If the Mandatory was OK with it then that Arab migrant was perfectly legitimate. d: "The jewish people had the option in 1922 to immigrate to plaestine in such numbers so as to become the majority and forming a jewish majority state." They tried, and they failed. The best they ever managed was 33% of the total popln. d: "Did the arab nations have a legal right to thwart zionism by also immigrating so as to prevent the jewsih majority. no they had no such legal right." All legislative and administrative power rested with the Mandatory i.e. it alone decided that question. That the zionists might shout "unfair! unfair!" was of no concern to that Mandatory Power.
