It was not worth winning the Holy Land only to “hew it in pieces before the Lord. Palestine, if recaptured, must be one and indivisible to renew its greatness as a living entity.”
—British Prime Minister, David Lloyd George


On November 2, 1917 the British government issued their now famous Balfour Declaration, which was a statement of British foreign policy at the time when issued. This month, November 2016 begins a year-long commeration of the Balfour Declaration, which is generally viewed as the first serious step leading to the rebirth of the modern state of Israel in 1948. Of course, the Arabs see the founding of modern Israel as a great disaster and the Palesinian Authority is responding by “preparing a lawsuit against eh British government over the 1917 document that paved the way for the creation of the State of Israel.”2
About one hundred years ago, the sun never set on the British Empire when Great Britain issued the Balfour Declaration. David Lloyd George had ascended to Prime Minister on December 6, 1916 and appointed a former Prime Minister Alfred Balfour foreign secretary who handled foreign affairs. The idea for issuing the Balfour Declaration was clearly Lloyd George’s idea but Lord Balfour was in total agreement with him on the matter. Here is a copy of the brief Declaration.
