The League of Nations which preceded the UN voted to crete a Jewish homeland in a province of the Ottoman Empire when the war ended and the empire was broken up. The reason the British ever got their mandate is because the League of Nations gave it to the British to oversee the creation of a e Jewish homeland and the UN just voted on it in 1947. Palestine though was not an independent state prior to either the granting of the mandate or UN vote. Israel is an independent state now and just because a group of arabs contest its ownership doesn't mean the UN can impose a solution. As long as Israel doesn't want binationalism then even though every other country in the world does want it it can't be forced. When it comes to the political future of an independent state there is no international democracy involved and majority doesn't decide only the decision of one individual country ( Israel ) so the UN can demand as much as they like but Israel says no the answer is no and there is nothing they can legally do to change that. If the zionist ides of a Jewish state is archaic now they what about the 50+ countries who are officially muslims and even though they have some non muslims living in the country muslim still rule and in countries where there is shariah the non muslims have to abide by those rules. if zionism is an archaic concept because Jews should just just coexist with non jews then should muslims just coexist with non muslims in islamic sates rather than consider the country as belonging to muslims?
