Posted text: “The [Fatah] Movement Commission of Information, Culture, and Ideology issued a statement today, Monday [Nov. 1, 2021], for the 104th anniversary of the crime against humanity that was committed by the mandate and colonialism state (Great Britain), which is known as ‘the Balfour Promise’ (i.e., Declaration), in which on Nov. 2, 1917, it was promised to the Zionist system that a national home would be established for the Jews on the land of Palestine.The Balfour Promise was considered the cornerstone a colonialist military apparatus (i.e., the State of Israel)…

Fatah said that its leadership and its fighters… know for certain that the Balfour Promise was and will remain the most shocking crime in modern human history, as this British promise paved the way for bloody periods and a series of massacres against innocent Palestinian civilians. [These massacres] were committed by the Jewish Zionist terror organizations… in order to empty the land of Palestine of its people who have cultural roots, and to replace them with Jews who were uprooted from their original societies worldwide and brought to our homeland of Palestine. This was in order to build a military apparatus under the title ‘a national home’ and ‘a state for the Jews,’ so that they would fulfill a role for the global colonialist system. Fatah demanded that the British political parties and the peace and freedom loving forces in Britain and the world pressure the British government to recognize the independent and sovereign State of Palestine whose capital is East Jerusalem in the June 4 [1967] borders, as a first step on the path to confessing the crime that its predecessors committed against the Palestinian people.”


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 favor of partitioning Mandatory Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state in 1947. In response, Britain ended its mandate on May 15, 1948, and the Palestinian Jews, who accepted the Partition Plan, declared the independent State of Israel. The Palestinian Arabs rejected the plan and together with 7 Arab states attacked Israel, in what is now known as Israel's War of Independence.
