On 9 November, Balfour issued his Declaration, addressed to Lord Rothschild, which proclaimed: “His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people … it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities.” Britain was later accused by the Arabs of cynical betrayal—simultaneously promising Palestine to the sherif, the Zionists and the French, perfidy that became part of the mythology of the Great Arab Revolt.

Thank you.
