So what does Rashidi says Well he says that ninety of the population who are Arabs "was effectively ignored as a national or political entity." So indeed they were ignored nationally By contrast the British and the League of Nations granted the Jewish Agency "quasi-official diplomatic status," which lent the Zionist movement "an international legitimacy" Namely: They were recognized nationally. Is that a problem? Depends: If you don't consider that the Jews will consider sovereignty then it would't be a problem. However, everybody knew that the question was sovereigny, therefore in addition, there was a demand to consider "other" groups rights in the Jewish national home. Other groups should have equal rights in the Jewish national home. Something wrong with this? Indeed the Israel state provides equal political rights to arabs, plus cultural rights. As it supposed to be.
