The Balfour Project
invites the government and people of the United Kingdom to :
• learn what the Balfour Declaration and Palestine mean for both Jews and Arabs

• acknowledge that whilst a homeland for the Jewish people has been achieved, the promise to protect the rights of the Palestinian people has not yet been fulfilled.

• urge the people and elected representatives of the UK to take effective action to promote justice, security and peace for both peoples.
