roc_ the Western nations did however we are not talking about Western nations. Also you think White Western non-Jewish backed Zionist colonialism out of some high minded ethical vision? Really? They backed the population explosion of Eastern European Jewry who were very often finding it extremely to adopt to modernity which had removed a lot of their privileges from them was creating huge problems across the continent and these people wanted somewhere to dump Jews, get them out of the way- very many even saw Zionism as a way to make Europe Jew free.They didn't.
It was the entire international community that gathered at the 1920 San Remo peace conference that did, and it was they that discussed, voted on and set out the terms of the Mandate for Palestine, that was given to the care of the British to carry out said terms of the mandate.
The international community granted rights to Jews that were set out in the terms of the mandate (along with Arab rights), recognising the Jews' pre-existing rights in Palestine, and their right to reconstitute their national home in Palestine.
A little background on this in the short video below.
How on earth did they have pre-existing rights in Palestine? Do you believe that Swedes and Danes have pre-existing rights to Waterford and Dublin? The very fact of Jews seeking to reconstitute a "national home" (by 3 B.C. something like ten per cent of the Roman Empire was Jewish- do you believe that they all had their origin in Palestine even though than as now Palestinians HATED leaving Palestine long term and when they left it was usually to try and convert the heathen from their idols to belief in Ha Shem?) in the populated homeland of another people not suggest certain things to you?
By the UK State by the way killed per cent of the male indigenous population when they rose up to try and drive out the British-Zionist colonial project- think about what devastation that must have caused.
Also the United Nations as a unit demanded that people have the right of return to their land who were ethnically cleansed by the Jews during the Nabka which you of course see as the height of unjustice.
I honestly wonder of much of the propaganda you come out with you actually believe. The Zionist State has recently enacted a "Basic Law"- the Zionist colonial project for those who don't know has no Constitution, what it uses in place of such are a set of what it calls "Basic Laws"- saying that ONLY Jews have the right to political self determination in the Land of Israel and Jewish settlement of that Land is a national value.
The Land of Israel is an expression for territory not including just the land ruled by the Zionist state but all of Jordan along with significant swathes of Iraq, Lebanon and Egypt- basically all the land promised to Avraham Avinu in Bereshit most of which never had a Jewish State, not even according to the wildest estimates of the United Kingdom of David and Solomon which very many scholars now no longer believed ever existed or if did was a best an insignificant Chiefdom (I know you have no real interest in the Tanakh which is a deep pity because it is a truly fascinating document). So straight there we see that Zionism is planning further slaughter and dispossession of "Arabs".
Doubtless if current trends continue in sixty or seventy years time you will be making out that Iraqis only moved to Iraq in order to spite Jews.
