  • This is incredibly biased first, the British defeated the OTTOMANS with the help of the Arabs. In return for their help, they were promised ALL of Palestine. In 1922 the Arabs outnumbered the Jews 8:1 (in Palestine alone, not Trans Jordan). The Balfour declaration was not legally binding, and did not promise a Jewsih state. Before independence, whole Arab village were massacred (Deir Yassin being one). Britain did not support partition as it was unfair to the Arabs who still outnumbered Jews 3:1-yets Jews were offered 54% of the land-and the most fertile at that. when a mediator was sent (Count Bernadotte) the Jewish underground assassinatated him. Arab countries warned ben-Gurion NOT to declare independence and to do so would be seen as an act of war against Arabs-which it was!
