IMHO, We all need to know where Israel really came from. Most messes in the Middle East and Asia are the product of the British Government like Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel… And Imperial Government is nothing but a Fake Democracy, a Fig-leaf covering the richest people in the world:
The famous document you cited, The Balfour Declaration, was addressed to Baron Rothschild who hailed from the richest bankster family in the world.
The Balfour Declaration (dated 2 November 1917) was a letter from the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Baron Rothschild (Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild), a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.
His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.
The text of the letter was published in the press one week later, on 9 November 1917. The “Balfour Declaration” was later incorporated into the Sèvres peace treaty with the Ottoman Empire and the Mandate for Palestine. The original document is kept at the British Library.
I think it’s important to understand that the Allies were previously concerned about the 1916 WWI stalemate and had run out of smokeless gunpowder which was critical for not giving away your position. Weizman, a chemist, provided a substitute.
During the first meeting between Chaim Weizmann and Balfour in 1906, Balfour asked what Weizmann’s objections were to the idea of a Jewish homeland in Uganda (the Uganda Protectorate in East Africa in the British Uganda Programme), rather than in Palestine. According to Weizmann’s memoir, the conversation went as follows:
“Mr. Balfour, supposing I was to offer you Paris instead of London, would you take it?” He sat up, looked at me, and answered: “But Dr. Weizmann, we have London.” “That is true,” I said, “but we had Jerusalem when London was a marsh.” He … said two things which I remember vividly. The first was: “Are there many Jews who think like you?” I answered: “I believe I speak the mind of millions of Jews whom you will never see and who cannot speak for themselves.” … To this he said: “If that is so you will one day be a force.”
Two months after Britain’s declaration of war on the Ottoman Empire in November 1914, Zionist British cabinet member Herbert Samuel circulated a memorandum entitled The Future of Palestine to his cabinet colleagues. The memorandum stated that “I am assured that the solution of the problem of Palestine which would be much the most welcome to the leaders and supporters of the Zionist movement throughout the world would be the annexation of the country to the British Empire”.
The same Chaim Weizmann, a chemist, then developed a way to produce acetone via fermentation, which the Germans had hoarded the world supply. Without acetone, you cannot produce cordite, smokeless ammunition, and will probably lose the war. So the Brit government owed him for bailing them out.
Another critical element in the conquest of Palestine, was Oil. The British had invaded Palestine’s Jaffa Port in 1917 and later used Haifa Port to use as a petroleum terminal which was the shipping loading point for the terminus of their oil pipeline from Iraq via Jordan. Previously, Oil from Iraq made it to the Empire by way of rail.
After British Oil Trains
They were very concerned with the safety of this rail all the way to their Suez Canal and to Egypt. Controlling Palestine Railroads was their real concern, which is why it dovetailed with the Rothschild Banking desire to relocate Germans to Palestine.
If I read my covert history correctly, that is. But everyone should read where Israel really came from:
In 1917 during the World War I British troops under General Allenby defeated the Ottomans and took Jaffa, which became part of the British-administered Palestine mandate (1922-1948).
