Palestinians suing Britain over 1917 Balfour Declaration

The Levant News — Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki asked the Arab League summit gathered in Mauritania on Monday to help the PA file a lawsuit against the British government over the Balfour Declaration, which allowed thousands of Jews to come to Palestine at the expense of the Palestinians. Malki further blamed the United Kingdom for all the “crimes and massacres that occurred in 1948 and after it.”

The Arab League urged the international community to force Israel to sign the nuclear nonproliferation treaty and voiced its support for the new French peace initiative.
