    since you are so fixated on the british mandate of palestine and the traety of 1922, i think it's only right that you be told how badly you've misinterpreted it. clearly, the reason you're so fixed on this, and the balfour declaration which was incorporated within it, is because it states that it puts into effect the declaration made in 1917, in which the allied powers had agreed "in favor of the establishment in palestine of a national home for the jewish people"...and of course, you conveniently ignore the rest of what's said in the very same sentence; but that's not what i'm here to point out. i'm here to point out your mistaken interpretation of what is said. again vickie boy, the quote that so endears you to the mandate, with a key word capitalized for your attention: "in favor of the establishment IN palestine of a national home for the jewish people". you will note that it DOES NOT say, "in favor of the establishment OF palestine AS a national home for the jewish people". in other words vickie, it never designated ALL of palestine, only that a jewish homeland would established "within" palestine. and it was precisely the same misinterpretation as yours, widespread among zionists in palestine at the time, which lead to the clarification and amendment of goals in 1939, which is known as the "british white paper on palestine". p.s.-none of which has anything to do with the fact that the u.s. does NOT recognize the legality of ANY of israel's occupations, and is steadfastly OPPOSED to its settlement building within those occupied territories. do have a nice day, vickie.
