    The 600,000 Jews in 1948 Israel either fail to muster the necessary resolve, or the Arabs invasion succeeds, or the UN vote to establish a Jewish state does not get the necessary number of votes, or the British refuse to leave. The Jews return to the protected dhimmi status they had in Muslim countries for 1000 years, and quietly financially thrive, supplying agriculture and services to the Arabs and British, but without any political or voting rights.

    Ben Gurion and Begin an do nothing as they bitterly watch the Zionist flame of an independent Jewish state extinguished, as demographics cause an increase in anti-Zionist Ultra Orthodox Jewry. The 1/2 million Ashkenazi Jewish Holocaust survivors who in OTL settled in Israel instead are resettled in Australia, Chile and Canada. The 1 million Sephardi Jews from the Arab countries who in OTL were expelled to Israel 1950-57, instead get to peacefully remain in their Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria etc.

    The British Mandate ends officially in 1960, an official UN recognised State of Palestine is recognized under Jordanian hegemony, which is promptly invaded by other Arab countries.....the Jews still quietistically waiting for the Messianic "Ingathering of the Exiles" foretold in their Bible.
    & I hope that you get green points for it.

    there was a British Backlash against the bombings in 1945-48. there was still a 'pro Jewish' sentiment. I suspect that the Pell commission plan would have been dusted off had the British stayed.

      The thing is that each of the three possible scenarios do not provide enough detail. Would the immigration levels and fighting that took place still have taken place in exactly the same way up until that point. In 1948 there is an efficient, comparatively well armed and very organised group of Jewish armed forces. Each of your scenarios is dependent on very different things but do not seem to take into account those facts.
