San Remo's Mandate: Israel's 'Magna Carta'

Tags: History, Yom Haatzmaut

Most people are not aware of the San Remo Conference which took place on April 19, 1920, lasted for seven days and published its resolutions on April 25, 1920. These seven days laid the political foundation for the creation of the 22 Arab League States and the one and only Jewish State of Israel. The full text of the Balfour Declaration became an integral part of the San Remo resolution and the British Mandate for Palestine, thereby transforming it from a letter of intent into a legally-binding foundational document under international law.

At San Remo, Chaim Weizmann proclaimed: This is the most momentous political event in the history of our movement and in the history of our people since our exile from our homeland."
