The Balfour Declaration 100 Years Later

The dealings between Zionist Jews and Great Britain near Britain’s impending defeat to Germany in World War I, ultimately saw the production of the now infamous Balfour Declaration: a reminder to Great Britain of the promise of Palestine for getting the U.S. to help them defeat Germany.

The amount of death and destruction that has taken place in the middle east since the Jewish take over of Palestine in 1948, can be traced back to this agreement.

Here is the letter in full.

THE BALFOUR DECLARATION

Foreign Office

November 2nd, 1917

Dear Lord Rothschild,

I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty’s Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.

“His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”

I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.

Yours sincerely,

Arthur James Balfour
