Summary

A reason given for a power in the United Nations to partition Palestine was that Palestine lacked standing as a state. In response, it was said that Palestine was a state; hence, any division of its territory by the United Nations would violate Palestine’s sovereignty. As result of the peace treaty with Turkey, the Treaty of Lausanne of 1923, it was argued in support of this position, Palestine became a state, as did the other Arab territories taken from Turkey. The Treaty of Lausanne provided renunciation of sovereign to Palestine. When Palestine’s status became an issue in a case before the Permanent Court of International Justice, the Court found Palestine to be a state. When Palestine’s status became an issue in regard to tariffs being legislated by Britain, the major powers indicated that Palestine was a state.
