The Balfour Declaration Centenary: 2 Months to Go

November 2, 1917- November 2, 2017

Article 20 of the Palestinian National Charter (1968):

"The Balfour Declaration, the mandate for Palestine and everything that has been based upon them, are deemed null and void. Claims of historical or religious ties of Jews with Palestine are incompatible with the facts of history and the true conception of what constitutes statehood. Judaism, being a religion, is not an independent nationality. Nor do Jews constitute a single nation with an identity of its own; they are citizens of the states to which they belong."
