The Origin and Nature of the "Mandate for Palestine"

October 11, 2017  |  Eli E. Hertz

Ever asked yourself why during the 30 year period-between 1917 and 1947- thousands of Jews throughout the world woke up one morning and decided to leave their homes and go to Palestine.

 

The majority did this because they heard that a future National Home for the Jewish people was being established in the area called Palestine, on the basis of the League of Nations [today the U.N.] obligation under the "Mandate for Palestine" document.

 

The "Mandate for Palestine," an historical League of Nations document, laid down the Jewish legal right to settle anywhere in western Palestine, the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an entitlement unaltered in international law.

 

The "Mandate for Palestine" was not a naive vision briefly embraced by the international community. Fifty-one member countries-the entire League of Nations-unanimously declared on July 24, 1922:

"Whereas recognition has been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country."

It is important to point out that political rights to self-determination as a polity for Arabs were guaranteed by the same League of Nations in four other mandates-in Lebanon and Syria [The French Mandate], Iraq, and later Trans-Jordan [The British Mandate].

 

Any attempt to negate the Jewish people's right to Palestine-Eretz-Israel, and to deny them access and control in the area designated for the Jewish people by the League of Nations is a serious infringement of international law.

 

Continuous pressure to surrender parts of Eretz-Israel are contrary to international law that firmly call in Article 6 of the "Mandate for Palestine" to "encourage ... close settlement by Jews on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes." It also requires the Mandatory for "seeing that no Palestine territory shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of the government of any foreign power."

 

In their attempt to establish peace between the Jewish state and its Arab neighbors, the nations of the world should remember who the lawful sovereign is with its rights anchored in international law, valid to this day - The Jewish People.
