    Britain is proud of its role a century ago in paving the way for the creation of Israel, with the key signing of the Balfour Declaration a matter of singular honour, according to UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

    This Thursday marks the centenary of the Balfour Declaration — a one-sentence, 67-word letter from Britain’s then foreign secretary Arthur Balfour that threw London’s backing behind a permanent homeland for the Jewish people in Palestine.
    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will travel to London to mark the anniversary. Ahead of that visit, Mr. Johnson used a column in the Sunday Telegraph to outline his pride in Britain’s role in Israel’s creation.
    In the article, Johnson said he was writing his thoughts down in the same room Balfour used 100 years ago, adding he praised the 1917 letter for its “incontestable moral goal: to provide a persecuted people with a safe and secure homeland.”
    London, he added, remained committed to a two-state solution.

    So during this long period how much has Britain given to Israel in help and assistance, I think those first boat loads of people arriving from Europe to Palestine at the close of the war might disagree. I seem to remember them being mistreated and threatened and not even allowed to disembark. Sounds like re written history just like we have now in the US.
