    Balfour was never really relevent when it came to facts it was just a document that gave hope to the zionists. The Balfour Decleration and the Legue of Nations mandate given to the British as a result called for a Jewsh HOMELAND and not a Jewish STATE. It was supposed to be binational and neither the British or League of Nations even expected mass Jewish immigration, they expected it this Jewish homeland to remain a place where Jewish refugees from eastern Europe escaping pogroms could. Then violence between Jews & arabs increased and the zionists decided nothing short of a Jewish state wiould be acceptable, we also had WW2 which meant mass Jewish immigratkion so Jews went from being a small group made up of some idealistic zionists and some refugees from Eastern Europe. After WW2 and the world heard aboutthe Holocaust the new UN decided to vote on partition to create a Jewish state not a Jewish homeland as Balfour & the League of Nations had planned.
