UNISPAL will give you the whole rundown on the Origins of the Conflict and the main reason was a minority was overuling the wishes of a majority and the UN had no legal authority to take land away from anyone to give to someone else. It had no mandate in that area. Therefore Israel is a state on land illegally acquired. Too late to change that now.

Was it not about expelling Palestinians from their homes and land?
