On June 30, 1922, a joint resolution of both Houses of Congress of the United States unanimously endorsed the "Mandate for Palestine," confirming the irrevocable right of Jews to settle in the area of Palestine—anywhere between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea:

"Favoring the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.

"Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled. That the United States of America favors the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which should prejudice the civil and religious rights of Christian and all other non-Jewish communities in Palestine, and that the holy places and religious buildings and sites in Palestine shall be adequately protected." [italics in the original]

On September 21, 1922, the then President Warren G. Harding signed the joint resolution of approval to establish a Jewish National Home in Palestine.

“In Palestine as o Right and Not on Suerance ...”
“When it is asked what is meant by the development o the Jewish NationalHome in Palestine, it may be answered that it is not the imposition o a Jewishnationality upon the inhabitants o Palestine as a whole, but the urtherdevelopment o the existing Jewish community, with the assistance o Jews inother parts o the world, in order that it may become a centre in which theJewish people as a whole may take, on grounds o religion and race, an interestand a pride. But in order that this community should have the best prospect o ree development and provide a ull opportunity or the Jewish people to display its capacities, it is essential that it should know that it is in Palestine as o rightand not on suerance.Winston ChurchillBritish Secretary o State or the ColoniesJune 1922
