Balfour Declaration gave land to “those who had no right” (i.e., Jews)

Text: “The 96th anniversary of the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration)”

“We will not forget the ominous Balfour Promise
Those who had no ownership gave to those who had no right
November 2, 1917”
Note: 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 view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.
