The UN General Assembly Partition Resolution died at birth when rejected by the Arabs. However the trust proposed to be created in 1920 called The Palestine Mandate served as the roots of Sovereignty for the Jewish People. It was a legal instrument that was self-executing. When its terms were met, the Jewish People beneficial interest became a legal dominion. When was that term? The lodestar for interpretation of a trust is the intention of the settlers if it is judicially admissible. Important evidence appears in a British Foreign Office Memorandum of December 19, 1917. It shows that legal dominion was to vest when the Jewish People had attained a population majority within a territory in the trust res they intended to rule and had the capability of exercising sovereignty. Part of the territory met these terms in 1948 within the Green Line. When in 1967 the Jews established unified control over Judea and Samaria, the remainder of the trust res vested. None of the changes in International Law following the 1920 San Remo Agreement divested the Jewish People of their collective rights to political self determination in Palestine SSRN.com/abstract=2385304
