26. Israel wasn't established until 1948
A Palestine "mandate" was drawn for the British to rule but the ultimate fate of that territory remained unresolved for another 25 years. They did promise the Jews a Jewish "homeland" in that territory, but the precise formulation wasn't clear until much later.
