They became citizens to the "Territory to which the Mandate for Palestine applied." "Hereinafter described as Palestine."(COMMENT)It was Palestine before the Mandate and it is still Palestine.
Could you clarify your point?
The territory to which the Mandate applied was given the name Palestine under paragraph 1 of the Palestine Order in Council. However, the name "Palestine" (westernized) comes to us to identify an undefined territory (generalized region) somewhere in the Levant reaching back (at least) two Millenium. But during the time of the Ottoman Empire, the names were as indicated by the map insert. Again, these names are western translations from Arabic and regional dialects.
(supra) is an approximation to the reality of the day.
Did the people change with the name, or were they the same people who had been there for the last two Millennium?
