Long celebrated by Zionists and condemned by justice activists, the so-called Balfour Declaration, 100 years ago, is credited with setting in motion the creation of the state of Israel on Palestinian land ... without consulting Palestinians. On paper, it was a 67-word letter in 1917 signed by the openly racist and antisemitic Lord Arthur Balfour, then Britain's Foreign Secretary.

This is one of five consecutive shows covering the conference "Balfour’s Legacy: Confronting the Consequences," held on November 11th at the First Parish Church in Cambridge MA, now re-airing. There were many engaging presenters. We've already presented Yousef Munayyer's keynote address. Today we present the 2nd panel, titled "Confronting the Balfour Consequences."

The three presenters and their subjects are as follows:

Amahl Bishara, Tufts University
Consequences for Palestinians

Anat Biletzki, Quinnipiac University
Consequences for Israel and the Jewish people

Rami Khouri, American University in Beirut
Consequences for the Middle East

Because of radio time constraints, our presentation of the fourth speaker, Nancy Murray (Consequences for the USA), was postponed. Go to if you want it now.

This panel was facilitated by Thomas Abowd, Tufts University, and recorded by our associate, Noble Larson, with minor edits by Stan Robinson.
