5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read, 23 Jan. 2012
This review is from: The Balfour Declaration: The Origins of the Arab-Israeli Conflict (Paperback)
As a historian and former journalist I can say that if you can only read one book on the politics, and confluence of events, people, interests and myths concerning `Jewish World Influence' that led to the realization of the dream of a homeland for the Jewish People, The Balfour Declaration: The Origins of the Arab Israeli Conflict is the one to read. The personalities and internal conflicts contained within the Zionist movement and its leadership are exposed, as are the sometimes convoluted, contrary and often conniving, contrary policies of the British Government. The 67 Words of the Declaration, crafted in such a manner as to pay lip service to the 700,000 Arabs who occupied the `National Home for the Jewish people' unleashed a still unresolved bitter conflict which has enveloped the politics of the Middle East in blood, in retrospect, while it gave salvation to most of the survivors of the Holocaust, never the less was a disaster for Great Britain, the Imperial power that `gave Palestine away' and in current times a albatross around the neck America's Middle eastern policy. In many ways the story reads like a le Carre novel, betrayal, intrigue and Imperial Hubris. Unlike a novel, however, the final chapter of the Balfour Declaration has yet to be written.
