Israel And Jewish Community After World War II
Until the mid-1900's, when Israel became a state, it was inhabited mostly by Arabs. Israel became a statein 1948, but the movement to create a Jewish homeland, called Zionism, started in the 1890's. One of thetrailblazers on this subject was Chaim Weizmann, a Russian-born chemist and Zionist leader, who in 1949became the first president of modern Israel. Weizmann was a key factor in getting the Balfour Declarationsigned by the British. The Balfour Declaration was a letter issued in 1917, during World War I, by foreignsecretary and British statesman Arthur James Balfour. The letter expressed Britain's approval of Zionism andalso that the British government would make the" best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of thisobject, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religiousrights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews inany other country." As an indirect result of the Balfour Declaration, Israel was established as "anindependent state" in 1948.(1) 1. Arthur Hertzberg, "Israel and American Jewry," Commentary (August1967), 69.In this paper I would like to observe the issue of Israel formation and what problems it caused for people inthis land. In 1920, the League of Nations, which later gave rise the United Nations, declared Palestine amandated territory of Great Britain, and gave the British the responsibility of keeping order between theJews and the Arabs, whose relationship had become increasingly hostile. Also, the mandate said that Britainwas to help in making a national homeland for Palestinian Jews. Many Zionists viewed the mandate ashelpful to their cause, but Britain, fearful of the hostile Arab population, proposed limits on the number of Jewish immigrants allowed to enter Palestine. These limits were not enforced, but they helped to alleviatethe pressure being put on the British by Arab inhabitants of Palestine.The mandate period lasted until 1948 and during that period the Jewish population in Palestine increasedtenfold. During the mandate uprisings were common and led to two major revolts, one by the Arabs, theother led by the Zionists. As Jewish immigration to Palestine increased, so did the Arab opposition toZionism and British rule. Several uprisings occurred and they culminated in a general Arab revolt whichlasted from 1936 to 1939 and was finally quieted by British troops on the night before World War II (2).About 6 million Jews were killed by German Nazis during World War II. Zionists soon realized that the needfor a Jewish homeland was growing and their efforts intensified towards getting one. By the end of WWIImost of the Jewish population in Palestine was revolting against British rule. In 1947, after seven years of war and exhausted by the revolts, the British decided to withdraw from Palestine and handed the problemsin Palestine over to the United Nations, who on November 29, 1947, agreed to divide Palestine into an Arabstate and a Jewish state (2). Under the plan, Jerusalem was to be put under international control due to itsreligious and ceremonial values to both Jews and Arabs.The Jews accepted the idea, however it was not so for the Arabs. They protested against the partition andthe protests erupted in to violence which later led to a civil war between the Jews and the Arabs, a themewhich has plagued the state of Israel throughout its existence. The British did not get involved, as they
