The investigation
The Investigation


How did the Palestinian mandate develop into the independent nation of Israel between the years of 1937-1949?


Due to the lack of cooperation between the Arab and Jewish people, a constant power struggle developed between both parties. In the years 1937-1949, the tension began to rise making it more difficult to become an independent state on either sides. The inadequacy of general policy in dealing with the mandate created more conflict as well. Ultimately, the superiority of Jewish political and military ability to the Arabs gave the former an advantage and led to the formation of the Jewish state, Israel.
