The malevolent guest at London's Balfour dinner |

Balfour allowed for creation of a Jewish state on land that had long been Israel

By wrapping herself in the Palestinian cause,  [Labour's shadow foreign secretary Emily] Thornberry is associating her party once again with an agenda of colonialist aggression (the Palestinians remain committed to the destruction of Israel), racist ethnic cleansing (the Palestinians repeatedly declare that no Jews would be allowed to live in a state of Palestine) and antisemitism (the Palestinians attempt ceaselessly to write the Jews out of their own history and religion and use Nazi-style imagery and blood libels to incite their children to anti-Jewish hatred).

And of course, a Palestine state alongside Israel has been on offer repeatedly since 1936 [PF, eg: 1948, 1967, 2001, 2002, 2008] – yet it has been the Arabs and "Palestinians" who have refused it while the Jews have always accepted it. There could be a state of Palestine tomorrow if the Palestinians would accept Israel's right to exist alongside it. Instead, they want such a state solely in order to destroy Israel altogether.
