Britain ruled Palestine. They called it the Palestine Mandate.

Answer 1Ottoman Empire, from 1516 to 1917.Great Britain was not an Occupying Power: it was a Mandatory Power in Palestine until 1948.Answer 2Great Britain exercised control over the Mandate of Palestine from 1919 to 1948 (when Israel became independent). Whether or not that is strictly construed as an occupation is not commonly questioned.The British made the laws, had the right to control police and military infrastructure, maintained ports and commerce, and directed political activities. Therefore, Great Britain was the final occupying power.Palestine was never an independent Arab State or even a unified Arab Province in any Islamic Empire.
The League of Nations granted Britain a Mandate to govern Palestine after the end of the First World War. At this stage, there were no plans for Palestinian independence, and very few Jews living in what was then the Palestinian Mandate.

No. Palestine did not even declare independence until 1988.
Palestine was a British Mandate in the Middle East, pursuant to the League of Nations description of a Mandate.
Great Britain administered Palestine on behalf of the League of Nations between 1920 and 1948, a period referred to as the "British Mandate." Two states were established within the boundaries of the Mandate territory, Palestine and Transjordan (Jordan).
Britain controlled Palestine from the end of World War I until February 1947 when, in response to Zionist terrorist attacks, Britain handed Palestine over to the United Nations to solve the Palestinian problem.
Britain made a number of promises during World War I in an attempt to attract allies. In the Middle East, they made promises to Zionists and to Arabs. When World War I concluded, Britain had control of the Mandate of Palestine and thus they were able to retroactively buttress both the claims that they made to the Jews and those that they made to Arabs insofar as they wished to actually observe them.
Britain published the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and acceded to this promise by overseeing the Mandate of Palestine in 1919.
In 1945, Palestine remained a British Mandate (United Kingdom).
The Muslims had control over Palestine, where Jesus lived and died (especially Jerusalem, which is located in Palestine). The Crusades were an attempt to put Christians back in control of Palestine. The Crusades were for the most part a failed military disaster, and finally the Christians and the Muslims came to an agreement: The Muslims would continue to control Palestine, and the Christians were allowed to visit there and make pilgrimages to Holy Sites in Palestine.

Yes and No. Palestine has two different definitions and Israel has two definitions. Palestine 1: All of the lands of the former British Mandate of Palestine. Palestine 2: All of the lands not under Israeli control in 1950 that serve as the basis for any current two-state proposal for the State of Palestine. Israel 1: All of the lands under Israeli control in 1950. Israel 2: All of the lands under Israeli control, both military and civil as of 2012. Now for the spatial relationships. Israel 1 is entirely within the borders of Palestine 1, but smaller (78%) Israel 1 (78%) + Palestine 2 (22%) = Palestine 1 Israel 2 and Palestine 2 overlap in much of the West Bank Territories. Israel 2 and Israel 1 overlap in all of Israel 1's territories. Israel 2 does not control the Gaza Strip territories which are part of Palestine 1 and Palestine 2. Israel 2 also controls some Syrian territory not in either Palestine.
