Aliyah an overview: the Jewish Home Land Part II of IV

In the first decades of the 19th century Jews from Persia, Marocco, Yemen and Russia immigrated to their Jewieh Home Land, the Land of Israel. But Aliyah continued in the late 19th and the 20th century.  

The immigration of Jewish people to the Land of Israel from 1882 to 1948 is also referred to as the period of …

… the First to the Fifth Aliyah when mass immigration, Aliyah, to the Jewish Home Land was organized. The Jewish national movement, out of which organizations like Hovevei Zion, Bilu and subsequently the Zionist Movement came fort, played a key role at this time. 

At that time the Ottoman Empire (1299-1922) was in power, the territory where the Land of Israel was situated was referred to as Ottoman Palestine. The empire came to an end at the end of First World War (July 1914 to November 1918). After which the region known today as the Middle-East came under the control of Western countries,

The League of Nations rectified the British Mandate over Palestine (1922-1948) which also would make possible the establishment of the Jewish Home Land in this region as was agreed with the British in the Balfour Declaration of 1917.
