Draft Mandates for Mesopotamia and Palestine, as Submitted for the Approval of the League of Nations – London 1921 – Defining the Status of Britain in Mesopotamia and Palestine
Draft Mandates for Mesopotamia and Palestine, as Submitted for the Approval of the League of Nations. London: His Majesty's Stationery Office, 1921. English.
A booklet containing the draft mandates for Mesopotamia and Palestine, submitted for the approval of the Council of the League of Nations by Lord Balfour on December 7, 1920.
The Mandate for Palestine includes 27 articles relating, among other things, to the following: creating the political and economic conditions that will enable the establishment of a national home for the Jewish nation while maintaining the civil and religious rights of all the residents of the country; allocating lands for Jewish settlement; creating a functioning governance system – laws, economics, foreign relations, maintaining the public order, protecting the holy places, protecting the freedom of conscience and freedom of religion; ensuring the status of English, Hebrew and Arabic as official languages; and more.
Formulating the Mandate for Palestine took two years and on July 24, 1922, after corrections and revisions, it was accepted by the Council of the League of Nations and became an internationally binding document.
