The Balfour declaration of your British government in 1917 set in motion
the creation of the state of Israel at the expense of the indigenous people
of Palestine. It allowed for the ethnic cleansing and eviction of
Palestinians from their cities, villages and homes. It allowed for the loss
of their lives, livelihoods, properties and rights. It allowed for hundreds
of thousands of them at the time to live in inhumane conditions, and for
millions of them today to continue living in similar conditions. It allowed
for a shameful history to morph into a shameful present.  It allowed for
terror and fear to become an integral part of Palestinian life and
Palestinian identity.
