PA to sue England

This has got to be one of the funniest things I have read in a long time.. at least from serious news media.

in 1917 Arthur Balfour wrote a letter in which he expressed the United Kingdom's support for a Jewish national homeland in Palestine and sympathy for the Zionist aspirations. This was a significant moment and eventually led to the State of Israel being established, with many other important moments along the way.

The Palestinians are now preparing a lawsuit against the United Kingdom because of that Balfour Declaration.

According to the Times of Israel, the PA is saying that the Brits are responsible for all Israeli crimes since the end of the British Mandate in 1948.

I don't know what they would expect to get out of such a lawsuit - reparations from the British government? a reversal of the original declaration?

I figure that if they are now moving on to blame someone else for their troubles, that is good for us. Let them concentrate their efforts in England, start their intifadas there, and leave us alone.

I wonder if they will sue the United Nations next for voting in favor of the establishment of the State of Israel.

  1. I agree with your statement except for "Let them concentrate their efforts in England, start their intifadas there". I don't want them hurting anyone anywhere. That is what the expectation needs to be.
