Part two

So what was this declaration the British were mandated to implement ? The Balfour Declaration was issued in the form of a letter to Lord Rothschild, the then President of the British Zionist Federation.

“ Dear Lord Rothschild, I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty’s Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by , the cabinet. 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 objective............”

IN Palestine OF a national home for the Jewish people

The memorandum submitted by Weizmann and his Zionist colleagues to the cabinet proposed the establishment OF Palestine AS a national home for the Jewish people. This would clearly mean that the whole of Palestine was to be designated as a national home for the Jewish people.

This was specifically rejected by the cabinet.

So the British are committed to work toward the establishment of a Jewish National Home somewhere in Palestine.
They don’t say exactly where and doubtless don’t know at this point in time.
