...why the Arab world didn't want a Jewish state in Mandatory Palestine." Oh come on, there was only really one reason. They didn't want a Jewish state in Palestine because Palestine already had an established, non-Jewish, Arab population that existed in such numbers that a Jewish state could not possibly be created - even in the proposed partition boundaries of Jewish Palestine - except by dispossessing hundreds of thousands of people because they weren't Jewish. And oddly enough, the Arab states didn't see - still don't see - why other Arabs should be expelled or disenfranchised because of their failure to be Jewish. That's the heart of the Arab-Israeli conflict. No need to resort to conspiratorial mutterings about "the Caliphate".
