The Rothschild family is a wealthy family descending from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, a court Jew to the German Landgraves of Hesse-Kassel, in the Free City of Frankfurt, who established his banking business in the 1760s. The Balfour Declaration was a letter dated 2 November 1917 from the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.
THE BALFOUR DECLARATION
Approved in advance by President Wilson but not the Arabs.
The Balfour Declaration of 1917 was a formal statement of policy by the British government on the portioning of the Ottoman Empire in the aftermath of WW1.
The letter stated the position, agreed at a British Cabinet meeting on October 1917, that the government supported Zionist plans for a National Home for the Jewish People within.
The “Balfour Declaration” was later incorporated into the Sevres peace treaty with Turkey and the Mandate for Palestine. The declaration was made in the letter from Arthur James Balfour (Foreign Secretary) to Lord Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish Community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation, a private Zionist organization.
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.
The text of the letter was published in the press one week later, on 9 November 1917. The “Balfour Declaration” was later incorporated into both the Sèvres peace treaty with the Ottoman Empire, and the Mandate for Palestine. The original document is kept at the British Library.
The declaration had many long-lasting consequences. It greatly increased popular support for Zionism within Jewish communities worldwide, and led to the creation of Mandatory Palestine, which later became Israel and the Palestinian territories. As a result, it is considered a principal cause of the ongoing Israeli–Palestinian conflict, often described as the world’s most intractable conflict. Controversy remains over a number of areas, such as whether the declaration contradicted earlier promises the British made to the Sharif of Mecca in the McMahon–Hussein correspondence.
Thank you for taking time to read this report on the Balfour Declaration. I hope it will help you better understand what is happening in the world today with regard to Israel and Palestine as well as all the chaos currently ensuing in the Middle East.
Soon the Lord is come my friends. We should make sure, as much as possible, that we are ready for his arrival.
May God richly bless you and keep you…
