France and Britain made matters worse because all they did was solely based on their greed for the land and the resources that this area possessed. They installed new arab governments in all the countries besides Palestine. These governments were all created with royal descendants which not only kept the royal lines continuing in these new areas but also let Britain and France maintain some control. They did not install this government in Palestine because it was considered such "holy land". The French did have one positive impact however with the creation of the Suez Canal which made it a lot easier for trading with Asia to occur. The United Nations did fulfill their mandate in trying to create world peace in this area, they created a proposal which should have been fine. The Jewish were happy with it. They just did not suspect the Arabs to be so difficult and basically impossible to please.
