President Obama seems to be set to reconfirm the Mandate for Jewish National Home




From President Obama''s itinerary on his forthcoming visit to Israel, as per the Press Briefing by Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, BEN RHODES:




    The next day, Thursday, the President will begin by going to the Israel Museum.  At the Israel Museum, he will view the Dead Sea Scrolls, which are a testament, of course, to the ancient Jewish connection to Israel and, frankly, a marvel that the Israelis have restored within the Israel Museum in a very substantial, impressive way.  So the President very much looks forward to the opportunity to see the Dead Sea Scrolls.






From the Mandate decision of the League of Nations:




    ...Whereas recognition has thereby been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country
