Marking the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration earlier this month PA Minister of Education posted a video produced by official PA TV, with a “simple” explanation for the Balfour Declaration….

“101 years since the ominous promise… Here is a simple explanation of the Balfour Promise for its anniversary…”

“The nightmare was created by Britain and was realized on the land of Palestine. Britain gave a right which it did not have to one not entitled to it: [A right] to our land in the form of a state, which is now known as ‘Israel’ … 

It was said that the old continent [Europe] was sick of the behavior of the Jews at the time, and therefore it planned to get rid of them. It was also said that Israel’s establishment would guarantee the division of the region for the West, and give it a foothold in the Arab homeland, which was afterwards called ‘The Middle East’… 

British Foreign Secretary at the time Arthur James Balfour stabbed a dagger into the soft belly of Palestine. He took upon himself a promise from one without ownership to one not entitled, as if he was the owner of the land and not a colonialist… 

This is just a drop in the sea of Britain’s crimes against our people, whose existence it has insisted on denying despite its Phoenician and Canaanite roots.”
