THE MAP HISTORY OF MODERN ISRAEL


Until the end of WW1 most of the Middle East was part of the Ottoman Empire.  Palestine was then placed under Great Britain by the League of Nations.  Their mandate lasted from 1920-1948.  Part of the area became Transjordan (now Jordan) with the remainder remaining under British control.  After WW2 the UN split the area into two parts, a Jewish state (becoming Israel) and an Arab state.  Accepted by Israel it was not accepted by the Arabs who invaded Israel the day after the British left to eliminate it.. Since then Israel has faced wars and terrorist attacks to eliminate it.  For security it has created the Israel Defence Force with compulsory military service..

The population of Israel has grown with worldwide immigration which includes refugees from concentration camps and Jews expelled by Arab countries.  The refusal to resettle the Arab refugees  by the Arab League left them in UNWRA camps..  Israel  saw this movement  as a population transfer as happened when India was split into India and Pakistan. The Arab League decided that leaving refugees in camps would be a future political counter against Israel.

Maps and events of subsequent wars aimed at destroying Israel are shown below.  Access Israel  for more detail.
