T. Belman. For those who do not know, the San Remo Resolution on the partition of the Ottoman Empire in 1920 gave binding international recognition to the right of the Jews to Palestine as it was then described. 78% of which lay east of the Jordan River.
Before the Palestine Mandate was signed by the League of Nation in 1922, Winston Churchill deleted the east bank lands from the lands the Mandate would include as Israel’s national home and it became known as Jordan. But he also declared that the Jewish right to the land was a matter of right and not of sufferance. The Jews were given the right to “reconstitute” what was, in recognition of their historic right to the land, save for the lands to the east.
Nevertheless the San Remo Resolution stands as predcedent for the right of the Jews to all of Jordan.
