Well, there was the Balfour Declaration but they told the Arabs the same thing (McMahon–Hussein Correspondence). But that didn't give any land to form Israel. England could have formed Israel on their own, but failed. Instead the let the UN do it.

The French and English broke the Middle East after WW1 (Sykes-Picot) then walked away. Now they're sitting on the sidelines looking at US saying, "well what are YOU going to do to fix it?"
