Chapter Summary

Besides the collective recognition of Palestinian nationality by the League of Nations and its Member States, the recognition of the nationality of Palestinian citizens as individuals by other states is significant Members of the British forces who applied for naturalization in Palestine, for example, were requested to give up their former passports as part of their application. Palestinian passports were recognized abroad, including in Britain, as being akin to other ordinary passports. Thus, once abroad and by presenting their passports, Palestinian citizens were treated as British protected persons. Palestinian citizens were able to claim the status of British protected persons by, inter alia, holding Palestinian passports. Under the British rule of 19171948, Palestinian citizens abroad enjoyed diplomatic and consular protection conferred on them by Britain. This status was similar to that of British citizens and inhabitants of British controlled-territories, such as those in the mandated, protected and colonized territories.
