Palestinian girl, 11, to UK PM: Balfour celebration ‘a new obstacle to peace’

11-year-old Palestinian girl, Hala Nasrallah, has written a letter to the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, who is planning to attend a celebration to mark he Balfour Declaration

Below is a letter written by an 11-year-old Palestinian student living in Qatar address to British Prime Minister Theresa May who is planning to attend a celebration of the centenary of the Balfour Declaration along with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

To Her Excellency Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Ms Theresa May

I hope you are well.

I have recently read about your British and Israel celebration of the one hundred years of the Balfour Declaration for Israel to occupy Palestine (which is not actually Balfour’s property). After that, an ocean of sadness and death flooded Palestine. To be completely honest, I do not understand why you would celebrate that day with pride. Are you proud of causing the Palestinians to be homeless? Are you proud of stealing peace from the Palestinians’ hearts, souls and minds without having the right to do that?

I live in Qatar, and I do have a lot of British friends, and I am in a British school. I am only eleven years old, but diving into the future, I realise that when my friends and I have graduated, they would all move back to their homeland. However, I would have no home to return to.

Although I have never set foot in Palestine due to Israel grabbing it away, my grandfather told me a lot of stories about what life in Palestine was like back then. He talked about the village that he used to live in; a village named Al-Burayj. It was a very pleasant village, but now it is a store full of weapons. It is not only about my grandfather and my village. It is also about the rest of the Palestinians that were kicked out of their own villages, and now many of them live in wretched, gloomy and miserable camps. I’m certain you know the agony that happens in Palestinian camps.

In fact, I feel that it is heavily confusing that you have refused to apologise, as even apologising is not enough. Palestine will not return to how it used to be by just doing that, because bringing it back would need a lot of effort from the international community.

Above all, you have placed a new obstacle in the road of peace because you are planning to celebrate a centenary that led to injustice for many people.

Nevertheless, the hope will always live inside us. Thus as an eleven-year-old, there is not much that I can do, but I will always seek a way to help Palestine. Therefore, that is why I am writing this letter to you. I would like to ask you on behalf of all oppressed Palestinians to cancel this shameful celebration.

I hope you take my request into thought and consideration

Sincerely,
Hala Nasrallah

Why do you think zionist placed Bibles in Hotels, free for the taken? Do you think they care about your piety and mine.

    “the Balfour Declaration for Israel to occupy Palestine”

    Actually, there was no Israel, Palestine was renamed “Israel” by European Jewry who wanted to deceive the world that
    Ashkenazi Jewry are descended from Israelite – which is totally false. Balfour was giving Arab land to European Jewry because they were hated back in Europe. It is that simple. And you are right, it was not his to give.

    • Kaminoyona

      And the name “palestine” was invented by the Romans in order to disassociate the land of Judea from the Jews.

      Arab land is Saudi Arabia.

        Is Mileikowsky native to Palestine?

      • Helen4Yemen

        Are you now like a parrot repeating nonsense? Who do you think the natives of Palestine are? Mileikowsky of Lithuanian with confirmed DNA of 99.9% European and 0% Middle Eastern?

      • Misterioso

        Such appalling and inexcusable ignorance!!!

        The first known written reference to Palestinians as a people (Peleset) was c.1150 BCE at the temple of Medinet Habut. They were among those who fought with Egypt during Ramesses III’s reign.

        The definition of “Palestinian” in the Oxford English: Adjective: “relating to Palestine or its peoples.” Noun: “A member of the native Arab population of the region of Palestine.” Native Arab = Indigenous people.

        The region between the Jordan River and the Med. Sea was referred to as “Palestine” by the Greek historian Herodotus (“the father of history”) during the 5th century BCE.

        100 years later, in the mid-4th Century BCE, Aristotle referred to Palestine while discussing the Dead Sea in his Meteorology. “Again if, as is fabled, there is a lake in Palestine….”

        Jewish historian Josephus’s (c.37-100 CE) The Jewish War, Antiquities of the Jews contains many references to both “Palestine” and “Palestinians.”

        Contemporaries of Jesus also routinely referred to Palestine as “Palestine.” In the first decade of the 1st Century, the Roman poet Ovid mentioned Palestine in both his famed mythological poem Metamorphoses and his erotic elegy The Art of Love. He also wrote of “the waters of Palestine” in his calendrical poem Fasti. Around the same time, another Latin poet, Tibullus wrote of “the crowded cities of Palestine” in the section “Messalla’s Triumph” in his poem Delia.

        The Zionist claim that the Roman emperor Hadrian officially changed the name of the region to “Syria Palaestina” or simply “Palestine,” in 135 CE is contradicted by the fact that by then, the term “Palestine” had already been in use for over 600 years.

        Also, for the record, when the Muslim Arabs arrived in Palestine in the 7th century CE (and liberated its Jewish population from Byzantine oppression), they retained the administrative organization of the territory of Palestine as it had been under the Romans and later, the Byzantines. They referred to the territory as Filastin (no “P” in Arabic.)

        To quote the opening sentence of the section entitled “Filastin” that appears in the book “Dictionary of the Lands,” written by geographer Yaqut ibn Abdullah al-Hamawi in 1225: “Filastin: It is the last one of the regions of Syria in the direction of Egypt. Its most famous cities are Ashkelon, Ramle, Gaza, Arsuf, Caesaria, Nablus, Jericho, Jaffa and Beit Guvrin.”

        By about 1300 CE there were virtually no Jews in Palestine, which was a recognized geographical concept using coinage with “Filistin” written on them. There were diaries of Palestinian travelers who said they missed “Palestine” and a distinctive Palestinian dialect of Arabic had evolved. From 1300 on, the vast majority of people who lived in Palestine were Christians and Muslims.

        In 1603, Shakespeare wrote in his play Othello: “Emilia: I know a lady in Venice would have walked barefoot to Palestine for a touch of his nether lip.” (Act IV, Scene iii.)

        In 1863, The Religious Tract Society of London published its “Pictorial Journey Through the Holy Land; or Scenes of Palestine.” In this work Beersheba is described as the southern limit of Palestine. Beersheba lies south-east of Gaza on the northern edge of the Negev desert. Palestine is described as “south of Lebanon.”

        European tourist books of the nineteenth century refer to “Palestine,” as did Theodor Herzl in his correspondence and the 1917 Balfour Declaration as well as the 1922 Class A League of Nations British Mandate.

        To quote the Winston Churchill Memorandum (1 July 1922) regarding the League of Nations Class A British Mandate: “[T]he status of all citizens of Palestine in the eyes of the law shall be Palestinian, and it has never been intended that they, or any section of them, should possess any other juridical status.”

  • Helen4Yemen

    Letter from President Nasser to President Kennedy 1961
    “He who does not own has made a promise to he who does
    not deserve. Then both he who does not own and he who
    does not deserve were able, through force and deceit, to usurp
    the right of the legitimate owner and take away from him what
    he owned and deserved. This is the true picture of the Balfour
    declaration: Britain’s pledge, promising in a land she does not
    own, but is owned by the Arab people of Palestine – a Jewish
    home in Palestine. On the individual basis, Mr. President, not
    to speak of the international basis, the picture as such shows
    a clear case of larceny in which any ordinary court can convict
    those responsible.”

    • kirby1

      Since you like to post quotes by Naaser how about these lovely ones:

      “We shall not enter Palestine with its soil covered in sand, we shall enter it with its soil saturated in blood”

      “Our basic objective will be the destruction of Israel. The Arab people want to fight . . . The mining of Sharm el Sheikh is a confrontation with Israel. Adopting this measure obligates us to be ready to embark on a general war with Israel.”

      “We will not accept any … coexistence with Israel. … Today the issue is not the establishment of peace between the Arab states and Israel …. The war with Israel is in effect since 1948.”

  • Helen4Yemen

    Balfour simply wanted European Jewry out of Europe! Take a look:

    “Wherever one went in Eastern Europe one found that by some way or other the Jew got on, and when to this was added the fact that he belonged to a distinct race and that he professed a religion which to the people about him was an object of inherited hatred, and that, moreover, he was … numbered by millions, one could perhaps understand the desire to keep him down and deny him the rights to which he was entitled” Balfour

  • charliematerne

    And she came up with that all by herself

    • Fred Mace

      What difference would that make? Its her land

      • charliematerne

        Does she, or her family have a legal title/deed? When and from whom did she acquire that title/deed? Is it in Area A or B or Gaza? It makes a lot of difference as to whose land it is.

        • Fred Mace

          She does not need title or deed. Its her land full stop.

          • charliematerne

            Because you said so? I don’t think that will work in a court to prove her claim.

          • Fred Mace

            Fascinating response. You must be the judge then. I better watch my back yard

          • charliematerne

            You don’t have to be a judge to read and understand the law. Try, where you live, to claim land you don’t have a deed to and see what a judge says

          • Helen4Yemen

            You mean the law that was paid for by the Rothschild dynasty?
            We are so sick of your and your goddamned Rothschild money interfering in the affairs of the Arabs. Ukraine elected a Jew PM and Ashkenazi can safely return home.

          • Helen4Yemen

            He is simply a European colonial predator with not even a tiny bit of Middle East ancestry to connect him to the region. I am Middle Eastern and the Ashenazi look to us like the British did the Kenyans, totally alien.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Why is your European sss involved in Arab affairs, that is what I would liek to know? Just because you have abandoned your Ashkenazi food and have fallen in love with Arab food does not make you native. Remember that you were hatched by non-Jewish European women.

        • Helen4Yemen

          What makes you feel you have a voice to speak on Arab matters?
          Don’t forget that you told us g that you were hatched by non-Jewish
          European women and Israelite men, right? I thought if your mama
          not Jewish that the new breed are not Jewish, right? Palestine is not your grandmother’s land, Poland is.

          I got very important and urgent message for you … here

          https://i.imgur.COM/BPSJpZG.png

      • Misterioso

        Precisely!!

        (A) In the summer of 1967, “[t]he legal counsel of the Foreign Ministry, Theodor Meron, was asked [by then Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol] whether international law allowed settlement in the newly conquered land. In a memo marked ‘Top Secret,’ Meron wrote unequivocally: ‘My conclusion is that civilian settlement in the administered territories contravenes the explicit provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention.’” (New York Times, 10 March 2006)

        (B) Security Council Resolution 446 (22 March 1979) “[Affirms] once more that the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War of 12 August 1949 is applicable to the Arab territories occupied by Israel since 1967, including Jerusalem,
        “1. Determines that the policy and practices of Israel in establishing settlements in the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967 have no legal validity and constitute a serious obstruction to achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East;..”

        (C) Security Council Resolution 465 (1 March 1980) “determines that all measures taken by Israel to change the physical character, demographic composition, institutional structure or status of the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967, including Jerusalem, or any part thereof, have no legal validity…”

        (D) Israel’s 1980 annexation of East Jerusalem was unanimously rejected by the UN Security Council in Resolution 476 (June 30, 1980): “all legislative and administrative measures and actions taken by Israel, the Occupying Power, which purport to alter the character and status of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal validity and constitute a flagrant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.”

        (E ) On 17 December 1981, the UNSC unanimously passed Resolution 497, which declared Israel’s 14 December 1981 annexation of Syria’s Golan Heights “null and void.”

        (F) In accordance with the 1949 Fourth Geneva Convention, ratified by Israel, and further underscoring the illegality of the settlements, Part 2, Article 8, section B, paragraph viii of the Rome Statute of the International Court (1998) defines “the transfer directly or indirectly by the Occupying power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies ” as a War Crime, indictable by the International Criminal Court.

        (G) On 24 February 2004, the U.S. State Department reaffirmed its earlier position in a report entitled Israel and the Occupied Territories, Country Reports on Human Rights Practices: “Israel occupied the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights after the 1967 War…. The international community does not recognize Israel’s sovereignty over any part of the occupied territories.”

        (H) In its 2004 ruling, the International Court of Justice unanimously ruled that “No territorial acquisition resulting from the threat or use of force shall be recognized as legal.” The World Court denoted this principle a “corollary” of the U.N. Charter and as such “customary international law” and a “customary rule” binding on all member States of the United Nations.

        (I) US Secretary of State, John Kerry: “The US views all of the settlements as illegitimate.” (13 August 2013, Reuters Video)

        (J) British Foreign Secretary William Hague regarding Jewish settlements in the West Bank (5 April 2011): “This is not disputed territory. It is occupied Palestinian territory and ongoing settlement expansion is illegal under international law…”

        (K) UN Security Council Resolution 2334, December 23, 2016: “Guided by the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, and reaffirming, inter alia, the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by force,
        “Reaffirming the obligation of Israel, the occupying Power, to abide scrupulously by its legal obligations and responsibilities under the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, of 12 August 1949, and recalling the advisory opinion rendered on 9 July 2004 by the International Court of Justice,
        “Condemning all measures aimed at altering the demographic composition, character and status of the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, including, inter alia, the construction and expansion of settlements, transfer of Israeli settlers, confiscation of land, demolition of homes and displacement of Palestinian civilians, in violation of international humanitarian law and relevant resolutions,….”

        “1. Reaffirms that the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace;
        “2. Reiterates its demand that Israel immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem, and that it fully respect all of its legal obligations in this regard;

        There is no special provision in international law (e.g., the UN Charter, The Fourth Geneva Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Rome Statute, which are binding on all UN members) that permits Israel to violate it with impunity.

        Re: the Gaza Strip

        Human Rights Watch, 2005: “…Israel will continue to be an Occupying Power [of the Gaza Strip] under international law and bound by the provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention because it will retain effective control over the territory and over crucial aspects of civilian life. Israel will not be withdrawing and handing power over to a sovereign authority – indeed, the word ‘withdrawal’ does not appear in the [2005 disengagement] document at all… The IDF will retain control over Gaza’s borders, coastline, and airspace, and will reserve the right to enter Gaza at will. According to the Hague Regulations, ‘A territory is considered occupied when it is actually placed under the authority of the hostile army. The occupation extends only to the territory where such authority has been established and can be exercised’. International jurisprudence has clarified that the mere repositioning of troops is not sufficient to relieve an occupier of its responsibilities if it retains its overall authority and the ability to reassert direct control at will.”

        The International Committee of the Red Cross: “The whole of Gaza’s civilian population is being punished for acts for which they bear no responsibility. The closure therefore constitutes a collective punishment imposed in clear violation of Israel’s obligations under international humanitarian law. The Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, ratified by Israel, bans collective punishment of a civilian population.”

        “In practice, Gaza has become a huge, let me be blunt, concentration camp for right now 1,800,000 people” – Amira Hass, 2015, correspondent for Haaretz, speaking at the Forum for Scholars and Publics at Duke University.

        “‘The significance of the [then proposed] disengagement plan [implemented in 2005] is the freezing of the peace process,’ Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s senior adviser Dov Weisglass has told Ha’aretz. ‘And when you freeze that process, you prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state, and you prevent a discussion on the refugees, the borders and Jerusalem. Effectively, this whole package called the Palestinian state, with all that it entails, has been removed indefinitely from our agenda….’ Weisglass, who was one of the initiators of the disengagement plan, was speaking in an interview with Ha’aretz for the Friday Magazine. ‘The disengagement is actually formaldehyde,’ he said. ‘It supplies the amount of formaldehyde that is necessary so there will not be a political process with the Palestinians.’” (Top PM Aide: Gaza Plan Aims to Freeze the Peace Process, Ha’aretz, October 6, 2004)

    I think for starters that this highly opinionated child should complete her education with all sides of the story as to the history of the situation. I am a Christian but will probably become a Muslim, ALSO, soon as I like many of the precepts of Islam. However the oil rich states should look to themselves and their own involvement in negative world affairs before educating children in their system to cast the first stone. Everyone is at fault and we , all of us need to take steps backwards to redress many situations, but the manipulation in one direction or t óther of the minds of children is not the answer.

  • ricck lineheart

    Without looking at the Balfour Declaration but looking at the illegal land theft , killings and kidnappings and too many more barbaric acts to mention , what the Israeli regime is doing is against International Laws and those in the West are just as guilty in support of these activities .

    The writer of this letter is exploiting a child to send their message.

    The land is for everyone everywhere. No one can claim to own any part of it. It is only by invasion, violent or otherwise that land is taken and held.
