The Balfour Decleration didn't even offer the jews a binational state it was more of a right to go settle there and the jews loved it but the arabs didn't even though at that time zionism had not developed into a religious ideal. Most the zionists were pretty much a bunch of secular jews who had come from eastern Europe to escape the pogroms just looking for a safe haven to escape persecution. If the arabs had accepted Balfour zionism probably would have never developed into much. Right up until the 1930s the jews were more than satisfied with a binational one but then arab hostility grew and thinking changed and now nothing short of a jewish state would ever be acceptable. What the zionists of the late 19th century & early 20th century wanted is not acceptable today & never will be again. Liberman doesn't have Obamas gift for speech making but he is a patriot & some of his ideas are good ones Israel needs like demanding loyalty from arabs living here.
