Balfour Declaration

         One hundred years ago, the Balfour Declaration opened the door to the creation of Israel. On November 2, 1917, Lord Arthur Balfour, then His Majesty’s Foreign Minister, pledged that the mandatory power should support “all his efforts” in the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine. This letter is considered as the founding stone on which the State of Israel was built thirty-one years later.
