The Mandate - A Story of Legalised Robbery!
by Steven Shamrak.
From the moment of recognising the right of Jewish people to live on the land of their ancestors the international community, represented by the League of Nations and the United Nations, have made all possible efforts to deny the Jewish people this right. Lead and controlled by the Great Britain and France, those institutions rubberstamped and authorised the greatest legalised robbery in modern history. Any conceivable shady and disgusting deals were made to prevent the creation of the state of Israel on Eretz Israel (Land of Israel)!
The Palestine Mandate. July 24, 1922. http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/Palestine_Mandate.html
In July 1922 the League of Nations entrusted the Great Britain with the Palestine Mandate. Recognizing "the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine," Great Britain was called upon to facilitate the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine - Eretz Israel (Land of Israel).
Preamble. Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have also agreed that the Mandatory should be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally made on November 2nd, 1917, by the Government of His Britannic Majesty, and adopted by the said Powers, in favour of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people…
Article 2. The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home, as laid down in the preamble...
Article 5. The Mandatory shall be responsible 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...
Three months later, in order to obtain full control over the Suez Canal, Great Britain made a deal with Hashemite Kingdom, Egypt and France. The trans-Jordan (77% of the Mandate) was given to the king's brother in exchange for the Sinai, which was given to Egypt. Golan Heights (5% of the Palestinian Mandate) was ceded to the French controlled Syrian Mandate. This robbery was legalised immediately by the puppet of the Great Britain and France, the League of Nations! It was a clear violation of Article 5 of the Palestinian Mandate. Our 'friends' are still quite generous in giving away the Jewish land!
Between 1922 and 1948, Jews were not allowed to move and live in the Trans-Jordan, but Great Britain and the Arab sheikhs facilitated the transfer of tens of thousands of Muslims to the Western side of the Palestinian Mandate. They were brought by truck loads from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Egypt to the remaining part of the Mandate. At the same time, the immigration of the Jews was restricted and continuously hindered by Great Britain, the governing authority.
At the end, in its 'generosity', the United Nations divided the remaining 18% of the Palestinian Mandate into a maze of six ugly triangles. Three of them were given to Jews, Jerusalem was not included!
The Jewish people have been systematically robbed by the International community of their land rights. Our rights and inspirations have being ignored and crushed by the cruelty of International anti-Semitism! Why do Jewish leaders subscribe to the anti-Israel lies of our enemies? Why are Israeli political leaders not demanding the return of the Jewish land? We have all legal, historical, moral and spiritual rights to reclaim the Palestine Mandated lands as - Eretz Israel!
