PA TV News: Balfour Declaration is a mark of shame on humanity

The 1917 Balfour Declaration was a letter from the British Foreign Minister Arthur Balfour to Lord Rothschild of the Zionist movement, which expressed Britain's support for "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people." Every year on the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, Palestinian Authority leaders and official media issue harsh statements attacking it. 
PA TV News reader:
 "Today is the 94th anniversary of the cursed Balfour promise [Balfour Declaration, 1917], by means of which those who had no ownership (Britain) permitted those who had no right (the Jews) to establish a national homeland for the Jews in Palestine."
Reporter: "A promise that brings a mark of shame upon humanity, because it [humanity] ignored the colonialist frenzy. Balfour will continue to turn in his grave because of the historical injustice which Britain committed against the Palestinian people."
