On the 99th anniversary of Balfour Declaration , Tayseer Khaled, member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Head of the Palestinian Expatriate Affairs Department – PLO, call on Palestinians all over the world to unite in the national campaign against Balfour Declaration. He said the Balfour Declaration is the main cause to all the atrocities committed by the Zionism and the state of Israel against the Palestinians and the main cause to a century-old “Palestinian Holocaust”.
He added that Balfour promise to the Jewish people to establishment in Palestine a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, is null and void.
Khaled applauded the launching of Palestine Holocaust Memorial Museum, in South Africa which has become a reality and a fact, despite all the repeated attempts to impede it by the Zionist lobby which doomed to failure.
The Palestine Holocaust Memorial Museum came to break the international silence toward the British Mandate’s crimes against the Palestinian people and their just cause and to provide the right historical version of the palestinian cause away from the zionist’s distorted version.
Khaled stressed the necessity to assert the Palestinians national rights of return, self determination and the establishment of his own independent Palestinian state on all the territories occupied in 1967 with East Jerusalem as its eternal capital.
He called upon the international community to stand behind the Palestinian people in his struggle to achieve his legal rights stipulated in the relevant international conventions and resolutions.
Kaled asked Britain, to draw the necessary lessons and to bear its historic, legal, political, material and moral responsibility for the consequences of this declaration, including an apology to the Palestinian people for the catastrophes, misery and injustice this declaration created and to act to rectify these disasters and remedy its consequences, including by the recognition of the state of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its eternal capital.
