When the occupying-British imposed the 1917 Balfour Declaration on the people living under their mandate in Palestine, following the end of the First World War and the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire, they initiated the conflict we now see raging in the Middle East. It was a region that had seen peaceful co-existence between Arab and Jew for centuries - over a thousand years in fact - with ethnic or sectarian tensions, a largely unheard of feature of life under Ottoman rule.
All that was to change when the British ceded to the demands of Rothschild Zionism to facilitate a homeland for the Jews on the lands of those who had already lived for thousands of years on the territory in question. It suited the British interest to do so as it would provide a welcome ally in a strategically vital region slipping from their grasp, with the added corollary that resulting divisions would also be amenable to exploitation, facilitating continued British influence going forward in an unpredictable period for their diminishing empire.
We should also bear in mind that all the horrendous, murderous tactics we see the Zionist employ against the Palestinians find their origin in British state policy as applied against those who revolted against their illegal, self-serving occupation of the Holy Land. It was the British who introduced collective punishment, it was the British who introduced home demolitions, they introduced shoot-to-kill, arrest and internment without trial and it was the British who introduced the concept of dismantling Palestinian state and societal institutions.
Almost all of the severe violations of civil and human rights we see on a regular basis today find their origin in British policy in Mandated Palestine and it was from the British the Zionists learned. How to treat the Palestinian, how to respond to any resistance on their part, how to subjugate them by means of relegation to a sub-human category that permits all forms of willful atrocity including mass-murder of the innocent. The apple never falls far from the tree.
Zionist Israel is a criminal, usurping entity to be rightly opposed using all and any means available. But we should always, always bear in mind that the ultimate responsibility for this terrifying situation we now see on a nightly basis, with images of children dead in their beds and charred remains of teenage boys and girls killed by Israeli air strikes while cowering in their homes, rests with those who brought this situation into being. The British. Oh but we know them only too well ...
