" the complete jerk rewrites history again" Strange.. Read UNSC 252 / 267 / 271 etc "the mandated territory is ceded by the san remo convention and the 1922 mandate and then guaranteed by the 1924 anglo - american convention !" No it wasn't. It says as Palestinians, under Palestinian Law, as Palestinian citizens. Even offered Jewish folk helpp to gain PALESTINIAN citizenship. Never the less the Mandate ended 14th may 1948. "the territory has never been legally patitioned nor can it be done !" Israel Declared Sovereignty over the borders recommended by res 181. http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/decad169.asp Res 181 is enshrined in the Declaration of a Jewish State. Israel was recognized by the majority of the International Community of States, over riding the Arab States objections.
