This political form of Zionism, which viewed being Jewish as a nationality by itself, aimed to create a Jewish state in Palestine. In 1917, toward the end of WORLD WAR I, Britain’s foreign secretary Lord Balfour issued a declaration on behalf of the British government promising to support the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. As a result of its loss in World War I, the Ottoman Empire lost control of its Arab lands, and the League of Nations granted a mandate to Great Britain to administer Palestine. Although the Balfour note promised nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, Arab inhabitants of Palestine opposed the subsequent immigration of Jews.
