The State of Palestine

One Minute History

1916. During World War I, Britain promises Ottoman Palestine to both the Arabs and the Jews. Britain takes control of the region after the war and starts the colony of Palestine; promising to transition power to the Palestinians when they are ready to govern themselves. A rapid influx of Jewish immigrants and the rise of Palestinian nationalism set off an Arab rebellion, which is brutally suppressed by British forces and Jewish militias. 1945. At the end of World War II, the United Nations steps in and plans to split Palestine into separate Jewish and Palestinian states. The plan is rejected, sparking the Arab-Israeli War, with the Israelis emerging as victors. For the Israelis, this marks the birth of their nation. For the Palestinians, this disaster becomes known as the nakba. Since then, the Palestinians have been stateless.
