Occupied Palestine (In Palestine Today)- Palestinian activists from Palestine Online, VPalestine, and Kuffiya take part in an online campaign to protest against the Ominous Balfour declaration.
November 2nd marks the 104th anniversary of the Balfour declaration, which caused a catastrophic impact on the Palestinians as they have been under Israeli occupation because of a letter consisting of 67 words.
Balfour Declaration, Ominous Promise, was issued on November 2, 1917, by the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary, Arthur Balfour, who sent a letter to Lord Lionel Walter Rothschild, one of the leaders of the World Zionist movement indicating the British government’s support for the establishment of a “national homeland for Jews” in Palestine.
“It is the promise of who doesn’t own to who doesn’t deserve”.
Palestinian activists lunch an online campaign, tweeting on the hashtag #Balfour104 to memorialize this ominous anniversary of the declaration.
The Palestinian activists called on the British government that It’s time to make some amends by holding Israeli occupation accountable and supporting Palestinian rights.
The activists said, ” We, the people of Palestine, hereby declare that Palestine is doomed to return to its people”.
The activists also tweeted, “Balfour’s declaration had a catastrophic impact on the Palestinians. It eventually led to the creation of “Israel” in 1948, during which Palestinians were driven from their homes, mostly through Jewish acts of terror”.
104 years on, Palestinians continue to call on Britain to apologize for Balfour’s crime, which has led to their ethnic cleansing from their homeland and made them endure different forms of ongoing suffering and aggression at the hands of the Israeli apartheid regime, its forces, and settlers.
