Abstract

The Balfour Declaration of 2 November 1917 was central to the wartime British-Zionist alliance and a powerful Zionist-Jewish propaganda tool. As the centenary of the Declaration approaches it is timely for a reassessment of the impact of the statement and British policies towards Palestine and its indigenous people. This essay also calls on the United Kingdom to acknowledge its historic responsibility for the disastrous consequences of Zionist settler-colonialism in Palestine and the subsequent Palestinian catastrophe (Nakba).
