The Balfour Declaration – A Century of Jewish Power

The solidarity movement is itself an occupied territory

By Gilad Atzmon

This year, Palestinians and their supporters mark the 100th anniversary of The Balfour Declaration, a written statement from the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, to Walter Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, in favour of the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine.

For Palestinians, The Balfour Declaration was the beginning of their plight: a century of ethnic cleansing at the hands of European newcomers who claim Palestine as their historic home. Yet, for some reason, supporters of the Palestinians are desperate to suppress discussion of the motivation for the Balfour Declaration – how and why did it come about?

The Balfour Declaration provides solid evidence that the dominance of Jewish political lobbies in world affairs is not really a ‘new development.’ In 1917, at the peak of WWI, it was up to a few Jewish financiers and lobbyists to decide the fate of countries, continentsand the outcome of global conflicts.

In his invaluable book, The Pity of it All, Israeli historian Amos Elon suggests that the 1917 Balfour Declaration was at least partially motivated by the British government’s desire to win the support of pro-German American Jews so that they would help to pull the USA into the war.

Elon argues that at the beginning of the war,  German- American Jewish financierssidedwith the Germans and would reject any possible alliance between the USA and England.  “Jacob H. Schiff, head of Kuhn, Loeb—at the time the largest private bank in the United States after J. P. Morgan—declared that he could no more disavow his loyalty to Germany than he could renounce his own parents. Schiff prayed for Germany’s victory. In a statement to the New York Times on November 22, 1914, he charged the British and the French with attempting to destroy Germany for reasons of trade.” (The Pity Of It All, pg. 455)

And German-American Jews were not alone in the Jewish community.  Russian-American Jews also supportedGermany in the war.  “Eastern European Jews in the United States, repelled by the anti-Semitism of czarist Russia, were equally pro-German. In Russia itself, Jews of the Pale greeted German troops advancing into Poland, Byelorussia, and the Ukraine as liberators. In a sense, they were.” (ibid)

According to Elon, the Brits encountered an American Jewish problem.  “The British government took these developments very seriously. In a fit of paranoia, the British ambassador in Washington even suspected the existence of a veritable German Jewish conspiracy in the United States directed at Britain.” (Ibid)

Elon’s conclusion is clear. “The 1917 Balfour Declaration, calling for the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine, was at least partly motivated by the British government’s desire to win support among pro-German American Jews.” (ibid)

Elon’s reading of the circumstances that led to the Balfour Declaration is pretty much the same as  Benjamin Freedman’s in his notorious 1961 address.

Freedman states that Zionists offered Britain their support in pulling the USA into the war in return for a British commitment to make Palestine into a Jewish homeland in the future. Freedman believed that Germany’s post-WW I animosity towards Jews stemmed from what they regarded as the betrayal and complicity of German-Jewish financiers in their defeat.

100 years after the Balfour Declaration, Palestinian solidarity enthusiasts choose to avoid discussion on the global Judeo-centric politics that led to the  declaration,  even though it was arguably the most significant event that shaped the Middle East and present day Palestinian reality. This reluctance suggests that the solidarity movement is itself an occupied territory. Once again, we observe that the discourse of the oppressed is controlled by the sensitivities of the oppressor.

    RichardD- really great reply.

    The Balfour Declaration, as well as the San Remo Resolution and the League of Nations mandates pertaining to Palestine were substantially extinguished via international law with UNSC Resolution 2334. In an effort to correct historic wrongs and mistakes. And the new UNSC Chapter 7 enforcement resolutions, with heavy military back up, that are currently being worked on to get humanities Jew problem corrected in an orderly and peaceful manner. Build on 2334 and other existing resolutions.

    The Meier prophesies using Plejaren time forward viewing technology project destructive civil wars in the US this century that break it up into multiple pieces. The Plejaren diplomatic outreach to the US Government in 1979 for a normalization of relations. Talks about the problem of cult religions and specifically mentions the Jews as a serious problem for humanity.

    My view is that if America doesn’t get it’s cabal Jew problem corrected. Is that it could lead to the destruction of the United States, and possibly much of the middle east, Russia, China and Europe. And that these evil trouble making cabal Jews are a serious threat to US national security and are enemies of the state and humanity.

    I’ve been in regular communication with Hamas for years and am working on a trip to Gaza across the northern Sinai with a follow vehicle and armed 7 person security detail as part of my 35 years of peace process work. Some of the death threats that I’ve received from the Zionists include the threat of a drone strike. I’m also looking in buying some property in Egypt and obtaining a pistol permit there. And doing some hiking and camping in the Sinai Mountains as part of my ET/ED contact work.

    Some of the Hamas leadership says that the Jews worship money. The parasite Jews gravitate towards self serving positions of control in society. That they exploit to the detriment of the host population. And they are disproportionately represented in those positions in comparison to their percentage of the population of the societies that they live in. This has been a problem with them for a long time. And is a contributing factor to the many expulsions that they’ve been subject to. And the discriminatory laws that have been enacted against them. That have victimized a lot of innocent people in an effort to get at the problem ones.

      The cabal Jews and their Ziocon collaborators get around US anti trust and anti monopoly laws using religion and corruption. And say that they can’t be prosecuted or litigated against simply on the basis of their religion. A lot of societies have handled this problem simply by expelling all Jews just to get rid of the bad ones even at the expense of the innocent. Because the problems that cabal Jews posse is so severe.

      Lying Jew attorneys will tell you that there is no such thing as a criminal Jew cabal. And that they’re not involved in RICO crimes or using innocent Jews as human shields to hide behind to make it easier to commit their crimes against nations and humanity. The UN and just about every other world body qualified and competent to issue international law decisions obviously isn’t buying it. With 80 plus UN resolutions against Israel compared to 1 against the Palestinians. Who wouldn’t have any if they hadn’t been so severely victimized for so long.

      Apologists for Jew crime will tell you that it’s just a coincidence that Jews are disproportionally in all of these control positions, and that they don’t conspire to victimize non Jews. And that these control positions that Jews occupy that have been used to commit massive crimes against humanity. Like the wars and regime change projects in the middle east. Have nothing to do with a criminal Jew cabal that they say doesn’t exist.

      While you are looking up crimes by Jews, do look up the British term “Rachmanization”. So named after Peter Rachman, who destroyed pensioner neighborhoods. This was around the time of the showgirl, Christine Keeler and her associate, the Israeli “swallow”, Mandy Rice-Davies.

      Political compromise operations are part of the criminal Jew cabal methodology, that’s for sure. Including a lot of people in the US government.

      I don’t doubt that they have dirt on Trump. But they’re also scared of him, and he’s been vilified by the Jew media since day one. Because they hate his America first populist agenda. Until he screws up big time I’m behind him. Because I agree with a lot of what he says that he wants to do. And if they do get him out, what gets put in could be much worse.
