November has come and almost gone, and I have forgotten to denounce the Balfour Declaration upon its 92nd anniversary. The item below was sent out three years ago, on November 2nd, 2006, the date of the 89th anniversary. It speaks for itself. In the interim, I have come to regard the Balfour Declaration as prime facie evidence of a deal between British Prime Minister Lloyd George and the Russian Zionist leader, Chaim Weizmann (the future first President of Israel), to drag America into the Great War on the side of England. No other explanation makes sense.
Such a deal was critical in determining the history of the Twentieth Century, because without it, President Woodrow Wilson would probably have continued his oft-repeated policy of official neutrality. This would have meant that Kaiser Wilhelm II, an honest European head-of-state who now has a terrible press in the Anglophone world, would have remained Emperor of Germany, and that the Central Powers of Germany and Austria-Hungary would have prevailed in the Great War. That outcome would have eliminated any possibility of World War II ever taking place, and the British Empire would have remained extant and, more or less, intact today.
With America not having intervened in European affairs, Washington's horrible nickel-and-dime politicians would not today be presiding over America in its current transmogrification from a self-respecting, independent Republic to the lone surviving "Superpower" presiding over a quasi empire. There would have been no Cold War. There would be no rationale for a debilitating "war on terror" due to a "clash of civilizations" because no terrorist assaults would have taken place on September 11th, 2001. There would be no neocolonialist, Zionist real estate enterprise--injected into the Middle East as a result of the 1917 Balfour Declaration--to provoke such a ghastly attack upon America. In brief, we would all be living in a better, more natural and sensible world.

In early 1917, in the midst of the Great War which started in 1914, England lost its gratuitous and unprovoked crusade against Germany and Austria-Hungary. London desperately needed (a) to pull Washington into the war and (b) to create unrest and a diversions within Mitteleuropa. Hence, the Balfour Declaration in the closing weeks of 1917. (See below.) It was drafted at the direction of PM Lloyd George as a quid pro quo to the Zionists, and was delivered by the British War Cabinet to Lord Rothschild several months after President Woodrow Wilson had succumbed to the pressure and blandishments of Louis Brandeis, Bernard Baruch, and others. Wilson had finally railroaded America into the war. See Behind the Balfour Declaration by Dr. Robert John.
Once the Zionist Federation communicated the Balfour Declaration to Jewish communities in continental Europe, London gained the instant advantage of Zionist and Marxist support behind the lines in central Europe. This combination of America's entry into the war on the side of England and the Zionist/Marxist support for England within Germany and Austria, led to the collapse of the Central Powers, even though their armies had knocked Czarist Russia out of the war and had defeated France and England in the field on the Western Front.
We are living today with the consequences of this clever British maneuver: chaos and war crimes in the Middle East, a terrorist attack on lower Manhattan, and Washington's bizarre "war against terrorism", now focused upon Iraq, which conflict may bankrupt the U.S. treasury before it is over. The British Empire is long gone, but it should be clear that the hangover from its machinations and alliances are in full force in the Middle East. Obviously, Zionism has been the big winner. The big losers are Europe and America.
89 years after the Balfour Declaration: Palestinians demand that UK take political responsibility for the current conflict...

Today, 2 November, marks the 89th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. On 2 November 1917, the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary Lord Arthur James Balfour, sent the following letter to Lord Rothschild (a leading Zionist):
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 views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use its 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.
Arthur James Balfour.
In a statement issued on the 89th anniversary of this letter's issue, Fateh media spokesman, Walid Awad, states that, despite the fact that "Great Britain was at a critical stage in its war with the Central Powers, mainly Germany, and motivated by history-proven personal and national interests", the writing of this letter, from a Palestinian point of view "was a mistake of infinite proportion". He adds that "Jewish writer, political and scientific commentator Arthur Koestler, summarized the declaration as amounting to “one nation solemnly promised to a second nation the country of a third.”
The Fateh press statement continues: "The declaration put moral, political, and material responsibilities on the shoulders of Great Britain towards the Palestinian people. "The immediate responsibility that needs to be met by Great Britain is the political responsibility. This can and should manifest itself in a relentless effort by Great Britain to support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the land occupied by Israel since 1967, and to make sure enough leverage is exerted at the UN to enable the fulfillment of relevant UN Security Council resolutions on Palestine, particularly the implementation of Resolution 194. As an effective member of the EU and the Quartet, and as a unique friend and ally if the US, Great Britain has the moral duty and responsibility to make sure that Israel withdraws back to the 1967 borders, and provides all that is necessary to establish a viable and independent Palestinian state.
"The historical wrong that Great Britain committed against the Palestinian people cannot be quantified. Correcting it in its entirety is almost impossible. Doing the next best thing, however, is preferable. The establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the national soil of the Palestinian people on part of historic Palestine can reduce the pain, but historically, will not heal the wound."
Palestinian ministry of refugees calls for British apology over Balfour Declaration
November 2nd, 2006
The Palestinian ministry for refugees' affairs has called on the British government on Thursday to avow an apology for issuing the Balfour declaration, which may remove the legal basis for the handover of the mandate of Palestine to the Jewish community in 1948.
In a statement commemorating the annual anniversary of the Balfour declaration, the ministry held Britain responsible for the atrocities that the Palestinian people have faced, ranging from killings to exile, displacement and loss of property during the 31 years of the British mandate.
The ministry has decided to undertake a series of activities in protest over the Balfour declaration, including a sit-in strike organized for next Monday at 10:00am, in front of the office of the mission for human rights in Gaza City.
