1922

  • The League of Nations issued The Palestine Mandate to Britain, which led to the establishment of  a Jewish homeland in Palestine through the Balfour Declaration, which went into effect in 1923.
    • Palestinians were never consulted on this decision, but Zionists were asked about their vision for Palestine, which was included in the Balfour Declaration.
    • As a result, Jewish immigration to Palestine in the 20th century increased.
