‘Hurtful to Palestinians’: Albert Hall told to cancel event celebrating UK role in creating Israel

Palestinians in the UK are outraged at plans to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, a colonial-era document that paved the way for the creation of Israel. Festivities include a huge event at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The November 2, 1917 declaration, which supported calls to establish a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine, is a source of great anger and resentment for Palestinians.

    Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall.

    “is a source of great anger and resentment for Palestinians”

    What is a source of great anger and resentment to me is Muslims praying 5 times a day for the destruction of non-Muslims, their lying, misogyny, honor killings, acid attacks, supremacism, their murderous so-called religion, their genocidal fervor against Jews, and I could go on.

    These Arabs were losers then and they are losers now.

    All of these excuses are just that. They want to say “Because we fucking can’t stand the Jews” but not even the Brits feel they can get away with that, yet.

  • Bless his heart

    Islam is Islam.

    They want to kill all Jews and non-Muslims.

    And when did the name Palestinian come to refer to some of the people in that area?
