Lord Balfour was most certainly a racist. But never mind that: let's agree the Balfour Declaration was not racist. It doesn't mention a Jewish state, but a national home for the Jews, which could be a home within a non-Jewish state. Balfour certainly does not provide any grounds for discrimination, let alone decades of ethnic cleansing and brutal occupation, against the non-Jewish people of Palestine, which has been a constant feature of the state of Israel, before and after its foundation: ""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."
