" To what extent did France and Britain make things worse in the Middle East region following World War I? Did the United Nations fulfill its mandate of trying to create world peace?"

When the Ottoman Empire broke up to become Turkey, much of the remaining territory was broken up and given to either Britain and France. When the Balfour Declaration came to be in 1917, Palestine - which was part of that territory- was promised to both the Arabs and the Israelis because of its religious importance. As a result, we saw the beginning of the Israeli war of Independence and a long-lasting feud between the two nations.

Once this problem is handed over to theUnited Nations, the war increases and becomes even more hostile. As a result, it did not fulfill the mandate.
