British Prime Minister Theresa May spoke at an event arranged by the Conservative Friends of Israel, and especially highlighted the fact that this coming year will mark 100 years since the Balfour Declaration.
“It is one of the most important letters in history. It demonstrates Britain’s vital role in creating a homeland for the Jewish people and it is an anniversary we will be marking with pride.”
This is an important statement in a year when we know that BDS and anti-Israel movements will try to undermine the value of the Balfour Declaration.
