Palestine, Britain and the Balfour Declaration: Dr Peter Shambrook

Lecture given at the Middle East Monitor conference Palestine Britain and the Balfour Declaration, London Oct 7th 2017

Balfour researcher, Dr Peter Shambrook assessed the reasons why the Balfour Declaration was created, ranging from wartime objectives, anti-Semitism and even the influence of key Zionist advocates. He emphasised that the British policy of “double speak” had led to the deliberate withholding of democracy from Palestine as long as there was an Arab majority.
