TO ALL AM ISRAEL
Contrary to “popular” belief, the Balfour Declaration did not bestow on the Jewish people any rights we didn’t already have. The Declaration simply acknowledged those rights.
Israel was a nation and a State when Europe and yes, Britain was still a swamp. It was, in fact, Britain’s betrayal of the Balfour Declaration and the League of Nations Mandate that created the predicament we are still attempting to deal with.
It was Britain that, contrary to the original League of Nations Mandate, prevented or curtailed the ingathering of the Jewish exiles. And, during the worst time of peril of the Jewish nation, prevented the Jews of Europe from entering their Homeland! During the same period perversely allowing countless tens of thousands of Arabs from neighboring areas to enter Eretz-Israel, giving them parcels of land designated for the returning Jews!!
The perfidy of the British appears endless. They first cut off 4/5ths of the land designated originally for the re-establishment of a viable Jewish Homeland, and helped to establish a never before existing Arab Kingdom of Trans-Jordan – later Jordan!
As if this betrayal was not enough, they proceeded to further cut off parts of Eretz Israel from the Jewish people, including Jerusalem, leaving a small enclave. This further partition, recommended by the Peel Commission in 1937, was however soundly rejected by the then British Parliament, calling it a shameful betrayal of the Jewish people.
The U.N. Partition of Western Eretz-Israel in 1947 was clearly influenced by British machinations and their previous attempt to create yet another Arab State on the soil of Eretz-Israel. Israel’s rights and legal status over Eretz-Israel was recognized by the 52 member States of the League of Nations in 1920 at San Remo, Italy, and became international law. Israel’s rights were also affirmed by the U.S. Senate and proclaimed as law by the then U.S. President Calvin Coolidge on December 5, 1925. This law remains in place to this day. The Bush administration’s support for an Arab State on the soil of Eretz-Israel, therefore, constitutes a clear violation of that law (see quote by Prof. Paul Eidelberg, page 306 of The Indictment by Sabina Citron, Gefen Publishing House, 2007).
