Ever ask yourself why during the 30 year period - between 1917 to 1947 - thousands of Jews throughout the world woke up one morning and decided to leave their homes and go to Palestine? The majority did this because they heard that a future national home for the Jewish people was being established in Palestine, on the basis of the League of Nations obligation under the Mandate for Palestine document. The Mandate for Palestine, an historical League of Nations document, laid down the Jewish legal right to settle anywhere in western Palestine, between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an entitlement unaltered in international law. The Mandate for Palestine was not a naive vision briefly embraced by the international community. Fifty-one member countries the entire League of Nations unanimously declared on July 24, 1922: Whereas recognition has been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country.

Eli Hertz has performed a notable service in recalling the twentieth century history of Palestine and the origin in international law of Jewish national rights there. Too often, commentators, diplomats, and international organizations ignore this history because it is inconvenient to recall that Jews have rights in Palestine. Rather than forgetting or ignoring history and law, international efforts should face the facts that Eli Hertz marshals and seek ways to vindicate and respect international rights of Jews and Arabs alike --Professor Nicholas Rostow, General Counsel to the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, 2001-05
