"You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, And called from its farthest regions, And said to you,‘You are My servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away"
Isaiah 41:9

Theresa May says we are "proud" of Balfour Declaration whilst noting "sensitivities"

Speaking during PMQs, Theresa May told the Commons, “We are proud of the role that we played in the creation of the State of Israel, and we will certainly mark the centenary with pride.”

However May added, “We also must be conscious of the sensitivities that some people do have about the Balfour Declaration. We recognise that there is more work to be done.”

May's words were remarkably similar to a speech at the UN General Assembly this week by UK’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN, who spoke of “unfinished business” with the Balfour Declaration and wrongly claimed that the “occupation” is an “impediment” to Palestinian statehood.

Tal Flicker stood on the podium on Thursday to receive his gold medal at the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam, but had to do so under the International Judo Federation flag instead of Israel's whilst the anthem of the federation was played instead of Hatikvah. However, the Isreali decided to sing it anyway.

“Once I won the gold medal, first of all I got very excited. I decided to sing Hatikva on the podium because Israel is my country and I’m proud to be an Israeli.”
