What did homeland for the Jews mean?

We have heard a number of times from the Bash Israel Brigade that the Mandate for Palestine was not the precursor for the establishment of an independent state by the Jewish people in the Holy Land.

This is what Advocate Howard Grief has to say on the matter among other things:

...the Report and Recommendations of the Intelligence Section of the American Delegation to the Paris Peace Conference, which was drawn up on January 21, 1919 for the explicit use of the President...stated as follows:

It is right that Palestine should become a Jewish state, if the Jews, being given the full opportunity, make it such. It was the cradle and home [emphasis added] of their vital race, which has made large spiritual contributions to mankind, and is their only land in which they can hope to find a home of their own; they being in this respect unique among significant peoples...

It is clear from President Wilson’s 1919 pronouncement and the Report and Recommendations he earlier received from the Intelligence Section of the American Delegation to the Paris Peace Conference, that “home” and “state” were, for the Americans, interchangeable terms and thus were synonymous....

In light of the foregoing evidence, there is no reason...to doubt the fact that the Balfour Declaration, the San Remo Resolution and the Mandate for Palestine had only one overriding purpose in mind, namely, the re-establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine which naturally embraced the entire territory, as is evident from the fact that the partition of the Land, as illegally took place later, was absolutely prohibited under Article 5 of the Mandate...

Mandate this or that doesn't really matter. What matters are the millions who are either living under an apartheid occupation or under siege
These people are entitled to security, freedom of movement and an end to daily arrests, missile attacks, demolitions and abductions.

The march for justice for Palestinians will continue this year. Let's hope that the tentative talks in Jordan are a start on the road to justice for the occupied Palestinians. They, too, have a right to dignity and freedom.
