From your references pertaining to "Palestine" and 1800 you obviously have no clue as to the history of that entire area...

Are you ignorant of when the term "Palestine" was used?
Herzl mentioned Palestine.
"... Argentina has a very GOOD SOIL and the conditions for agricultural labour are MUCH BETTER better than in Palestine, but in Palestine they work with enthusiasm and they succeed. " -The Father of Zionism 1902

The Balfour Declaration mentions Palestine
... "it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine ..." -Balfour Declaration 1917

Note Britain had no right dictating anything upon a foreign people but even Balfour's letter doesn't say a "Jewish State" and it didn't say all of it: "His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people" and like I pointed out it didn't OK the violations of the rights of non-Jews, it explicitly said their civil and religions rights were not to be violated but that is exactly what the Zionists were planning to do and did.
