CBC’s Balfour Declaration Centennial Report Implies Israel Has No Right to Exist

In a CBC TV report broadcast on November 2marking the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration (the historic document written by Lord Arthur Balfour which expressed Britain’s support for a Jewish national homeland in historic Palestine) CBC Mideast journalist Derek Stoffel’s report implicitly cast doubt on Israel’s right to exist by supposedly referencing Palestinian claims stating that the Balfour Declaration “led to the military occupation of the Palestinian people by the Israelis.”

    The CBC has no right to exist.

    I gather that the CBC failed to mention that the bigger portion was carved out of “Palestine” and given to the Arabs and called Trans-Jordan.

      I’m sure that was unintentional. /sarc

    Same old anti-Hebrew saw. The Palestine mandate was what was left over from imperial meddling. The zionist who settled the area and brought it back from the dead had always extended the hand of friendship towards their neighbors. It was outside influence that created the Palestinian “refugee” (that’s a laugh).

    Its kinda interesting that nobody will point out the obvious that almost every country in the middle east, was created roughly the same way and the same time. All these islamic pest holes are fragments of the old Ottoman Empire that broke up after WW1.

        In fact, the northwestern quarter of Jordan and its Red Sea port of Aqaba are a part of the historic Jewish commonwealth.

    It’s been argued about since the inception of the Balfour treaty. Israel exists, it existed centuries before that declaration.
    Palestine however, is an admitted creative fiction instituted by that Egyptian gargoyle, Yassir Arafat, otherwise known as Abdel-Rahman Abdel-Raouf Arafat al-Qudwa al-Hussein, son of a textile merchant.
    All so called Fake-stinians are in fact Jordanians, except Jordan doesn’t want them either. Nor does any other Islamic state.
