It came down to pragmatism. The Zionist project was a colonialist project. The 1917 Balfour declaration and the subsequent immigration into Palestine had as its explicit aim to create an alien entity in Palestine at the expense of the indigenous population.

In practice it might have avoided the Nakba [cataclysm] that Palestinians are still suffering from today. – Bitter Lemons
