The Balfour Declaration

The 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration is approaching and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign are rather annoyed that, the Government has made it clear that it has no intention of apologising for Balfour. Here is the Balfour Declaration in Full

Foreign Office
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 favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours 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.

Yours,

Arthur James Balfour

 

Why do we need to apologise to Palestinians for this bit?

it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine

The Israeli government needs to apologise for not honouring that excerpt from it.

On October 7th PSC held a national conference on Balfour and are having regional conferences on it.  Why somebody would hold a conference on a hundred year document consisting of three paragraphs is beyond me.  But anyway, PSC inform us that ‘their expert panels’ made clear, the Balfour Declaration was an act of imperialism in which Britain saw fit to disregard the rights of the Palestinian people. Really? How can a document that said that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, disregard the rights of the Palestinian people?

PSC claim that It was founded upon an assumption that the Palestinians did not matter, that their legitimate claims to their land could be ignored.This is absolutely not the case as it clearly states that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine.

As the document states that it was to be 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, the only thing wrong with it is that it didn’t talk about existing Jewish communities in Palestine, some of which in 1948 were marched out at gunpoint.

It is no secret that I am pro Palestinian but  if I was in Balfour’s position back then, I would have done the same thing because I know why he did it. It pleased the Jewish community in the US, so that they would encourage the Americans to get involved in WWI.

PSC correctly say that Israel, in its basic laws and, subsequently, in its policies regards the rights of the Jewish inhabitants of the land as superior to those of the Palestinian people. So the problem isn’t the Balfour declaration, the problem is, the government of Israel not honouring it in its entirety.

If the Balfour declaration was a mistake, I do not believe that we need to apologise for it, just as I do not believe that because I have a Surname of Old Norse origin, I need to apologise for the Vikings sacking Ipswich in 869.

 

Some time ago I was asked if  I could set up a Palestinian Solidarity Campaign group in Ipswich. I couldn’t because I disagree with the BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) movement because firstly, sanctions affect the poorest and most vulnerable in a society the most, so it would hurt the Palestinians the most. This is probably why all the Palestinians I am in contact with who support it are living in the UK, Sweden, the US or Greece. Palestinians I am in contact with in places like Bethlehem and Ramallah tend to have a different opinion. The second reason I am against BDS is the fact that if all the BDS movement’s demands were met, Israel would cease to exist and I am both pro Palestinian and pro Israeli.

What needs to be addressed is that Netanyahu is not honouring the Balfour agreement by continually building colonial outposts illegal settlements, annexing parts of the West Bank and changing the demographics of Jerusalem by demolishing houses, repossessing houses and building new colonial outposts settlements there. You can read more about that here.

Of course the situation is made worse by the Palestinians plight being hijacked by the extreme left who want to use the Palestinians as cannon fodder in their bogus war against capitalism and the West, just as they want to use the working class as cannon fodder in their quest for absolute power for themselves. The argument for justice for the Palestinians has to come from the right.

The Streets of Ipswich

So how can you tell me you’re lonely,
And say for you that the sun don’t shine?

Well let me take you by the hand And lead you through the Streets Of Ipswich
I’ll show you something that will really jar you off.

Well have you seen the old boy
Wondering down Dogs Head Street
Came here in the 60’s
Came here to work at Ransomes and Simms.
Left home with pity
To the bright lights of the city
Worked hard and played hard
Drinking in the 365 inns.

Well let me take you by the hand And lead you through the Streets Of Ipswich
I’ll show you something that will really jar you off.

And have you seen the old girl
Who walks the streets of Ipswich
Being mocked by the local scumbags?
She looks older than she is,
She wonders as if in utter bliss
Carrying a thousand old carrier bags.

Well let me take you by the hand And lead you through the Streets Of Ipswich
I’ll show you something that will really jar you off.

And have you seen the old boy
Sitting on the Cornhill
Jarred off mumbling to himself,
Wondering where his life has gone?
Now at one time this town really appealed
Now he longs for those East Anglian fields
Mumbles to himself about what went wrong.

Well let me take you by the hand And lead you through the Streets Of Ipswich
I’ll show you something that will really jar you off.

I’m Standing with Theresa May

The two questions we are left with after party conference season;

Labour: How do we stop a run on the pound caused by our economic policies?

Conservative: How do we get letters to stick on a wall?

I know which party I would vote for.

This Momentum Labour Party is an utter disgrace. I believe Councillor Melanie Hampton puts the situation created by Corbyn’s fascist leftism well.

She says

I am a councillor in a Conservative controlled Borough in London. I have got to know my Labour counterparts and in the main worked well with them. I may not agree with them and on occasions passionately disagree with them but I respect them firstly as people and secondly for the sincerity the majority of councillor’s bring to their communities.

The rise of Momentum’s bile is plainly seen with sneering and even jeering when out canvassing but this is now infecting committee meetings and certainly the council. They have defied convention and shouted me down when I have been speaking in debates, formalities thrown to the wind as listening falls away from their lexicon.

Last week one of our more angry Labour councillor’s proudly announced on TV that you could never be friends with a Tory. What a very sad reflection not only on her humanity for her fellow man but also on the Labour Party. How can they hope to represent everyone with this terrible rage boiling away?

Have you ever seen a Conservative hang up a sign to welcome someone to their city saying that they want to hang someone who has a different opinion.

This Corbyn Labour Party and their Momentum engine don’t want a democracy they want to dominate and impoverish us all.

I totally agree with this. In the past I have got on well with members of the Labour Party who are councillors and who are not. I have also worked with them to bring about what benefits the community. This polemic, aggressive polarised politics of hate that has come about through Corbyn and Momentum is of no benefit to anybody.

Theresa May is an excellent Prime Minister and is the best person to lead us through Brexit. As October is a slow news month, the media are busy trying to find things to write about. Also as the media is lead by the Staylinist, Corbynite, Bolshevik Broadcasting Commune, they obviously want Brexit stopped and Labour in government. Usually the Bolshevik Broadcasting Commune oozes bias nationally but locally operates by the integrity that it was founded on. But today I was shocked by an element of leftwing bias appearing on Radio Suffolk’s Mark Murphy’s Facebook page, claiming that her speech was a disaster. Aren’t politicians allowed to get the flu?

Backstabbing Duracell Bunny, Grant Shaps has announced that he is good enough to be prime minister. No he isn’t because Theresa May has the support of the Conservative Party grass roots, so if he managed to remove our brilliant Prime Minister and got down to the last two, we would make sure that he went down in flames.

Solidarity with Catalonia

22050358_10215066240235787_4959816870222429377_n

What could Junker mean by that?

What he means is that he supports the brutality because if Catalonia left Spain it would automatically leave the EU and Catalonia just happens to be the part of Spain where most of the money is and he and his fellow racketeers like spending that money on chioce food and fine wine while people around Europe are living in sheds. He also means that he supports the police brutality because underneath that fluffy, liberal image they put across, the EU is run by a bunch of fascists.

Also, we must consider the fact that what happened in Catalonia is the standard form of policing in much of the EU and Juncker and Co like things across their federalist dictatorship harmonised. So if we were not leaving the EU we would probably have to see kettling replaced by rubber bullets, tear gas and brutal police violence.

Llibertat per a Catalunya

Jacob Rees-Mogg speaks to protester at Conservative Party Conference

‘Affordable Housing’ 

As I am currently living in Ipswich and plan to be living in Woodbridge soon, I would like to talk about the house building policies of the two councils.

The phrase ‘affordable housing’ is a phrase created by socialists to propagate the idea that the rich are providing houses that only they can afford at the expense of the Poor. 

By using the phrase ‘Affordable Housing’ Ipswich Labour can promise lots of cheap housing with a policy that involves building lots of council houses and having everything in council tax bands A and B which means that council tax in Ipswich is extortionatly high, meaning that more people are dependent on Council Tax Benefit and therefore dependent on the Labour Council. 

The Labour council’s policy also discourages people with money moving into Ipswich and investing their money in it, improving the local economy. 

Meanwhile in the neighbouring Conservative authority of Suffolk Coastal, all the houses that are being built are in council tax bands E and F meaning that people who were born in the vicinity can’t afford to buy a house there which makes it rather difficult if an elderly relative where they were brought up develops dementia while they are living in Ipswich, where all the cheap houses are. 

So basically we have one Council building lots of cheap housing and the next door Council building lots of expensive housing and both of them are wrong. 

There needs to be a balenced approach in both cases. 

Of course the Labour policy is the worse of the two because the lack of money coming into the town, is turning it into a shithole.
