Fatah member: Balfour Declaration greatest crime of international community
Official Palestinian Authority TV - Nov. 3, 2011
The 1917 Balfour Declaration was a letter from the British Foreign Minister Arthur Balfour to Lord Rothschild of the Zionist movement, which expressed Britain's support for "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people." Every year on the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, Palestinian Authority leaders and official media issue harsh statements attacking it.
PA TV News interview with Fatah member Fayez Abu Aitah:
"Yesterday we had the [anniversary of the] Balfour promise - the greatest crime that the international community is responsible for, and specifically the British government. The time has come for the international community to repair the sin against the Palestinian people and to give the Palestinian people today its right to live like the nations of the world, on its land, within its independent Palestinian state."
