The Balfour Declaration

Israel,Balfour Declaration, Zionism, According to the Jewish Virtual Library:
On November 2, 1917, British Foreign Secretary Lord Arthur James Balfour wrote a letter to Lord Walter Rothschild. The contents of this letter became known as the Balfour Declaration: "His Majesty's Government views with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors 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."

The Olive Tree in today's cartoon is a character introduced in my Graphic Novel "Trees, The Green Testament"

You can order a copy of Trees, The Green Testament at or you might want to order a copy directly from us, for me to autograph and for the LSW (Long Suffering Wife) to then shlep to the post office to mail to you.
