PA Ministry of Information: Balfour Declaration is “the greatest crime in the history of mankind”

Headline: "[PA] Ministry of Information: The Balfour Promise is the greatest political and legal crime in history"
    "The [PA] Ministry of Information stated on the anniversary of the black Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) that this promise is the greatest crime in the history of mankind and a political, legal, and moral sin whose heavy price is still being paid by our people with its blood and living flesh.
The ministry emphasized in a statement today, Wednesday [Nov. 1, 2017], that the fact that British Prime Minister Theresa May takes pride in the promise testifies to political insolence not yet seen by history, a strengthening of the violations of our people’s legal rights, and an insistence on supporting terror, settlement, and aggression.
The ministry stated that the promise and all of the ramifications are a legal offense that has no statute of limitations, and that everyone who advances it must be put on trial before the International Criminal Court. This is because a state cannot establish another state on land that it does not own, and it has no right to dispose of it freely under any pretext."

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.” In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate “responsible for putting into effect the declaration,” which led to the UN vote in 1947 and the establishment of the State of Israel.

British Prime Minister Theresa May’s exact quote before the British House of Commons on Oct. 25, 2017, was: “We are proud of the role that we played in the creation of the State of Israel, and we will certainly mark the centenary with pride.”
