The British didn't "take Israel away and name it Palestine".

There was no Israel at the time - it WAS Palestine.

"In common usage up to World War I, "Palestine" was used either to describe the Consular jurisdictions of the Western Powers or for a region that extended in the north-south direction typically from Rafah (south-east of Gaza) to the Litani River (now in Lebanon). The western boundary was the sea, and the eastern boundary was the poorly-defined place where the Syrian desert began. In various European sources, the eastern boundary was placed anywhere from the Jordan River to slightly east of Amman. The Negev Desert was not included."

It was part of the Ottoman Empire,then ruled under a League of Nations Mandate by Britain - as Palestine.

Israel came later,in 1948.
