Good day, vhardman. I am very puzzled by your citing of the Balfour Declaration as proof for the existence of the state of Israel. Nowhere does it imply that there was to be a Jewish state separate from Arab Palestine, Jews were about 9% of the population. Moreover, note the famous clause: "nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine." The Palestinian Arabs were not consulted, their rights hence prejudiced. Nor did Palestinians take part in the San Remo treaty drafting. What business did Britain, France, Italy and Japan have in deciding the demographics of Palestine? The Muslims and Christians, kept protesting, but no one paid heed. There were riots, strikes, massacres (Hebron--59 Jews, mostly European immigrants, i.e., Zionists, perished horribly). Jews in return formed terrorist groups, assassinating the British. Finally the British left the whole damned bloody mess and pulled out. A pox on them.
