Great Britain as Palestine

From 1920 to 1948, Palestine was a British-administered colony. The British government promised the land to the Zionists in the Balfour Declaration and to the Palestinians in the League of Nations mandate. In 1947, the British withdrew from Palestine, stating it was unable to arrive at a solution acceptable to both parties. In other words, the problem they helped create was now too complicated to help resolve.
