Balfour Declaration was British plan to get Jews out of Britain

“[History lecturer] Na'aman Shahrour stressed that the aim of the Balfour Promise (Declaration) was well-defined and clear from the outset – to get rid of the Jews [living] in Britain and Europe and to establish a state that would serve the colonialist powers, [a state] that would be a dagger in the soft underbelly of the entire Arab world.”

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.
