If Israel does not traverse the PLO claims of Arab inalienable national rights to Palestine, it will be taken as Israel's acceptance of that view. Israel's claim to political or national rights to Palestine stemming from that recognition by the World War I Allies recognition of such rights in the San Remo Resolution should be trumpeted by Israel rather than be kept a secret. Israel was given a beneficial interest in those political or national rights in 1920 with the tacit agreement or understanding that they would get legal dominion over them when the Jews had attained a population majority in Palestine. The rights of the beneficiaries were held in trust by the British who was named as trustee or mandatory power. It had legal dominion over these rights during its term as mandatory but it voluntarily gave up its trusteeship in 1948. In 1950 the Jews met the tacit standard for vesting of sovereignty when it attained a population majority that by now is an 80% majority.
