The uninformed people about Israel

The uninformed people about Israel
Many uninformed people seem to think that Israel was a pity gift, given by Europe to the Jews because of the Holocaust. The new and additional influx of Jewish people to Palestine started in the mid to early 1800 after the Ottoman Rulers modified its existing laws to stimulate the development of Palestine. The Ottoman Empire owned over 90% of the land in Palestine. Some of the land was leased to the Arabs as sharecroppers.
This is simply not true. Israel traces it’s legal start to many years before Nazism. It is my belief that very few Zionists know the whole story.
The country of Israel was actually created peacefully long before 1947, and long before the Holocaust. The land was not stolen by Jews, or conquered with blood by Jews. The land in question was part of the Ottoman Empire and was lost by the Ottoman Empire in WW 1 (transferred Palestine to Allied control under the Sevres and Lausanne Treaties)
The Allied Powers at the San Remo conference in 1920 which incorporated the 1917 Balfour Declaration. The Treaty in essence returned the land to it rightful Nation, the Jewish People. This was voted on at the San Remo conference by Britain (David Lloyd George), France (Alexandre Millerand) and Italy (Francesco Nitti) and by Japan’s Ambassador K. Matsui and this was confirmed by the 1920 Treaty of Sevres and Lausanne. The rest of the world voted for this at the Anglo-American Convention (1924) and all the world powers at the League of Nations. The United Nations accepted this in full when they opened their door and replaced the League of Nations.
The League of Nations passed numerous resolutions (but none of the resolutions can abrogate or modify international treaties). So you might hear about secret meetings between countries and all kinds of conspiracies. However none of those meetings had the right, or the status to make resolutions that were binding in international law. The League of Nations was the predecessor of the UN Security Council.
It was recognized in 1922 that the Jews were the indigenous people of the land. There was a legal binding international commitment to the Jewish people, based on the ‘historical connection of the Jewish people to Palestine and the grounds for reconstituting their national home there,’ a commitment which has never been revoked. There has been a continuous Jewish presence in that land for more than 3500 years. Over a million Jewish families who lived in Arab countries for over 2500 years were expelled from the Arab countries, their assets, businesses, homes and land was confiscated, majority of those expelled families from Arab countries resettled in Israel, today they consist over half the population in the State of Israel.

The British as trustee for the Jewish people under the Mandate for Palestine violated many of the terms and that is why we are in the mess and conflict of today.
