    vh: "he doesnt know the meaning of homeland in the balfour declaration and why they used the word homeland !!" The British were posed that very question back in 1992 i.e. what did you mean by "Jewish national home"? They replied in the 1922 Churchill White Paper. "They would draw attention to the fact that the terms of the Declaration referred to do not contemplate that Palestine as a whole should be converted into a Jewish National Home, but that such a Home should be founded 'in Palestine.' " "it is contemplated that the status of all citizens of Palestine in the eyes of the law shall be Palestinian," "it is essential that it should know that it is in Palestine as of right and not on the sufferance." Got that? The JNH was "in Palestine" so that nobody could say that Jews could not emmigrate to Palestine, but the British insisted that this did not mean that Palestine BELONG TO THE JEWS. In short: it was their safe haven, but it wasn't their state.
