Regarding your first clarification: The Palestine territory was controlled by various governments, the British being one of them. Above I didn't make any assumption about who ruled the region, just about its inhabitants. I find your second clarification rather irrelevant to the discussion.

If I understand correctly, when Israel was recognized as a state, the remaining territories were not recognized as the state of Palestine, so Israel started taking those territories as well. Why did it take so long for some of the remaining territory to be recognized as a country (of Palestine)?

Thank you for the answer. So basically Palestine referred to a region with mostly muslim inhabitants who had various rulers but did not have a structure that we call a "country" now a days (whatever that meant at the time). Then another group of people looking for a place to stay and be safe started buying lands in that region (fair and square), but after gaining enough land and power they decided to have their own country. Through wars, they succeeded in making the state of Israel and had it recognized (except by arabs) in 1948. What has occurred since then seems natural.
