The State of Israel as we see it today, and how it came to be, is a topic that does not receive the attention it deserves. Is it Gods Promise, Or Edoms Snare?
The League of Nations were ultimately a failure, and from its beginning was a “Globalist” creation to bring about a ” New Order” their words. Most of the Arab Nations walked out in 1927 because they saw it as an encroachment on their sovereignty. That was the year British MI6 created the Mus lim Brotherhood.
Britain used the League of Nations, and the Balfour Declaration to insert the British Empire into the M.E. Both the Arabs and the Zionist felt betrayed and in the end there was no State of Israel, but they did get a “toe hold”.
The Dreams and aspiration of a few Zionist Jews, Great Britain’s support for a “Jewish” homeland, and a perceived “promise” By Britain, should Not be confused with some “divine” intervention from God. Unfortunately, thanks to the Scofield Bible that is what has happened.
The Balfour Declaration was made in November 1917. The Balfour Declaration led the Jewish community in Britain and America into believing that Great Britain would support the creation of a Jewish state in the Middle East.
On November 2nd 1917, Arthur James Balfour, the British Foreign Secretary of the time, wrote to Lord Rothschild. The Rothschild’s were considered by many Jews to be one the most influential of all Jewish families – they were certainly one of the wealthiest. Their influence in America was considered to be very important to the British government.
Balfour declared his support for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in the area known as Palestine – though there had to be safeguards for the “rights of non-Jewish communities in Palestine”. This communication was accepted by the Jewish community as Great Britain’s support for a Jewish homeland. Other nations that fought for the Allies offered their support for the declaration.
However, from a Palestinian Arab point of view, the same area had been promised to them for siding with the Allies in World War One and fighting against the Turks, who were fighting on the side of the Germans.
Therefore, when Britain was given Palestine to govern as a League of Nation’s mandate at the end of the war, both the Jews and the Arabs believed that they had been betrayed, as both believed that they had been promised the same piece of land. After 1918, politics in the Middle East was to become a lot more complicated as many Jews took the Balfour Declaration as read and emigrated to Palestine. The Arabs there saw the increasing number of Jews moving to the region as a threat to their way of life and problems quickly multiplied.
This letter to Lord Rothschild, by the British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour, was aimed at Jewish support for the Allies in the First World War. The letter, known as the “Balfour Declaration” became the basis movement to create a Jewish state in Palestine. The letter was published a week later in The Times (London) of London
November 2nd, 1917
Dear Lord Rothschild:
I have much pleasure in conveying to you. on behalf of His Majesty’s
Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet:
His Majesty’s Government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.
I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge
of the Zionist Federation.
Arthur James Balfour

Michael J. Cohen in The Origins and Evolution of the Arab-Zionist Conflict 1987. Cohen wrote:
“..But once the United States abdicated any further role in the new European order after the summer of 1919, it was left to Britain and France to divide the Middle East between them. It cannot be said that either power displayed any great altruism when it came to deciding whether the indigenous peoples of the area were mature enough to be granted their independence. In April 1920, in the small Italian town of San Remo, Britain and France divide the Middle East into mandates while the American ambassador read his newspaper in the garden. Britain obtained Palestine, Transjordan 6 and Iraq; the French acquired Syria.
page 64 and footnote;
6. (footnote) – Palestine and Transjordan remained a single administrative unit until 1946, but in 1922, Transjordan was detached from the area to which the Balfour Declaration applied. This has remained a grievance with the Zionist side, but it should be remembered that the area to the east of the river Jordan was definitely included in the area promised to Husayn in 1915; the linking of Palestine and Transjordan had been an administrative convenience for Britain and did not indicate any recognition of Zionist claims to the East Bank of the Jordan.
I went to many sources on this subject. Back in the 80s I had the same questions, and I came to the same conclusions. The British (Rothschilds Controlled) wanted to manipulate the M.E. and restructure it more to their liking. The Zionist apologists love to say that the Palestinians did not exist, but they ignore the fact that neither did the Iraqis, Iranians etc.
ISRAEL was created for conflict!
