The U.N. did not create or re-establish the State of Israel; it only followed the instructions and Agreements of "The Supreme Allied Powers" after WWI. The British Mandate for Palestine, April 1920 and its consequences The British Mandate for Palestine (as trustee for the Jewish people), sometimes referred to as the Mandate of Palestine, was a League of Nations Mandate created after the First World War when the Ottoman Empire was split up by the Treaty of Sèvres and Lausanne.

At the 1920 San Remo conference of the Allied Supreme Council, at which the Mandates were granted (and the 1917 Balfour Declaration was incorporated as part of the allocation, that gave it the force of International Law), and at which time the Arabs received over 12 million sq. km. of territory with a wealth of oil reserves, the precise boundaries of all territories, including that of the British Mandate of Palestine aka The Land of Israel, were specified, to "be determined by the Principal Allied Powers" and were completely finalized based on the Faisal Weizmann Agreement of January 1919 which specified all of Palestine for the Jewish National Home which is about 120,000 sq. km., (see the minutes of the 1919 Paris Peace Conference and the 1920 San Remo Conference) and described four years later. \

However, it was clear that the boundary of Britain's mandate for Palestine as trustee for the Jewish people, was to extend eastward to the western boundary of its mandate for Mesopotamia. In 1921, following Churchill's negotiations with Emir Abdullah Transjordan (later Jordan was created as the new Arab state for the Arabs in Palestine/Israel) was part of the Mandate, but it was separated from the area on which a Jewish National Home had been reconstituted and to be re-established, a move formalized by the British in violation of treaties and agreements, by the addition of a September 1922 clause to the charter governing the Mandate for Palestine aka The Land of Israel, which allowed for postponement of all mandatory provisions which expressly included as part of the 'Jewish National Home' on lands which lay to the east of the Jordan River.
