'The greatest crime'?

Israel Matsav

What do you think was the greatest crime in human history? The Holocaust comes to mind. So do many of the pogroms in Europe starting with the crusades and continuing right up to the end of World War II. Of course, I'm being pretty parochial. So how about the Armenian genocide? The Sudanese war on non-Muslims? The Hutu's and Tutsi's of Rwanda?

'Palestinian Authority' television, run by our 'peace partner,' has decided that there's something worse - much worse - than all that. Would you believe the Balfour declaration?

Every year on the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, Palestinian Authority leaders and official media issue harsh statements attacking it. According to the Palestinian narrative, Jews have no history in the land and therefore have no right to exist as a state. Consequently, Israel exists only because of the Balfour Declaration. This year, the PA Ministry of Information and the Ministry of Culture organized a workshop for high school girls in Tulkarem in cooperation with the city's Education Administration. The girls wrote "letters of sorrow and pain to the Queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II, and to the British Foreign Minister, William Hague, since it was the letter by that country's Foreign Minister Arthur James Balfour, which has caused the Palestinian people ongoing suffering," reported the official PA daily.

One girl wrote to Queen Elizabeth:

"The real reasons that caused Balfour to give his dark promise, first and foremost [the desire] to be rid of the Jews in Europe and to award them a prize for the genocidal weapons which they had invented, which helped Britain to annihilate more people."

PA leaders and official media have published claims on many occasions that the establishment of Israel was a European plot to get rid of the Jews in Europe because the Jews were a burden on European society. The Balfour Declaration is cited by many Palestinians as proof that Zionism was not a Jewish idea but a colonialist idea, and it was this idea that the Palestinian girl was expressing in her letter.

Let's go to the videotape.

Here's another one. Let's go to the videotape.

Despite the PA's claims in English to the international community that it recognizes Israel, the PA openly continues to indoctrinate its people with significant historical revision, to reject and deny Israel's right to exist.
