There were already 15,000 Jewish colonists in Palestine. The Great War of 1914-1918 displaced millions of Jews who were living in what had become battlegrounds: a territory called the Pale of Settlement, extending from the Baltic to the Black Sea. Because of their separate religion, customs and language (Yiddish) the Jews of Near and Far Europe had always been subject to unpredictable bouts of violence from their neighbors. The 20th century had started no differently, with the Kishineff Massacre of 1903, and the Russian massacres of 1905. After World War 1 left them homeless and starving, many Jews emigrated back to the ancient homeland in Palestine, until Britain, which controlled Palestine, limited their emigration.

Britain controlled Palestine from 1918-1948.Britain, which had promised in 1917 in the Balfour Declaration to create a 'national home for the Jews' in Palestine. Britain was trying to keep in with both the Arabs and the Jews - and this little game of 'divide and rule' didn't work.Britain

A:Jews had already been moving into Palestine since late in the nineteenth century, a part of a Zionist aim to establish a Jewish homeland within Palestine. By the beginning of the twentieth century, there were 12 Zionist settlements in Palestine. By 1914, Jews constituted a tenth of the total population of the territory. The Balfour Declaration gave Jews hope that they could establish a homeland there, although Balfour had been careful to frame his declaration in terms of protecting the rights of the Arabs. The Jewish population of Palestine continued to grow, by both legal and illegal immigration. By the end of World War 2, it was clear that the Jewish population would achieve some form of statehood within the boundaries of Palestine. The traumatic events leading up to and during World War 2 resulted in a mass exodus of Jews from much of Europe, with the bulk going either to the United States or to Palestine. There was an expectation that a Jewish state would be carved out of Palestine, and this was an important reason for Jews moving there between the end of World War 2 and the Declaration of Independence. Some arrivals had religious motives, but the majority of immigrants during this period were secular Jews with little interest in religious antiquity and a preference for making their homes in the rich coastal areas rather than holy city of Jerusalem.

It's not they want to kill Jews it's that's israel and palestine are on a forever going on war over land and the majority of people in Palestine are Muslims and in Israel are Jews. So some now see it as a war of religions

It was Palestine, a small country mainly populated by Arabs, with some Jews and Christians. It was run by the British as part of the British Empire. They called it The Palestine Mandate.

Many Jews came to Palestine from Europe, trying to escape the Nazi Holocaust. They also came with the dream that they could build their own lives and a country where they would not be subject to discrimination again.

A lot of different reasons. One big one is that the British, who controlled what was then Palestine, passed a law shortly before the war began that kept Jews from moving there.

Jews had nothing terribly important to do with World War I. The war was not fought about Jews (even though Jews were part of every involved army from a major power other than the Ottoman Empire). Jews often fought valiantly for their homelands, as diverse as American Jews fighting for the US and German Jews fighting for the German Empire or Second Reich. The only "Jewish" part of the war was the presence of Jewish militias in Ottoman Palestine who assisted the British in liberating that area from Ottoman control.

Lots of Jews had fled to Palestine before the holocaust, as there were very few another countries that would accept refugees, even under the obvious threat of genoicde.

That depends where. In the Americas, Australia and (what was then called) Palestine, the Jews were unrestricted. In Europe, however, they were being murdered en masse. They weren't free to move around or work as they pleased. Those who weren't killed outright were put into forced labor.

Thee was no state of Israel during the world wars. Israel was created by Great Britain and usa by after 2nd world war when they outwardly opposed the migration of jews into Palestine but secretly supported them.
