I don't know enough in deep the Zionist movement to say how much was diffused the idea to create the new state of Israel following one of those models. Anyway, checking the site of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the map connected with the Balfour Declaration is really similar ... and also lands in modern Lebanon are incorporated https://mfa.gov.il/MFA/AboutIsrael/Maps/Pages/The-Balfour-Declaration.aspx.The map that you linked to shows parts of the Sinai, Lebanon, and Syria as a part of Israel, though. Did Zionists ever claim to capture these territories as well (I mean plan ahead of time and permanently capture these territories--as opposed to merely using these territories as bargaining chips)?
