Noah Wilk,

I would like to commend you for your excellent response to Avenger (prevaricator would be more appropriate). I would respectfully like to add a little information.

The League of Nations did give Britain the mandate to administer the settling of Israel by the Jews; however Britain formed a strong friendship with the Sultan of Saudi Arabia and allocated Transjordan to his brother contrary to the mandate established by the League of Nations. But the most important aspect of Britain's folly was that they monitored and controlled the immigration of Jews to Israel, but completely ignored the flood of Arabs.

Thus within a short period of time, the Arab population exceeded the population of the Jews. The United Nations was not formed until after WW2. One other important aspect of this debacle was that Israel ended up with less than 10% of the land originally mandated for the Jews and Britain was entirely at fault.
