    Dear Lord Rothschild,

    I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty’s
    Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist
    aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.
    “His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine
    of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best
    endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly
    understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and
    religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine***, or the
    rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”

    I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the
    Zionist Federation.2

    Signed,
    Arthur James Balfour
    [Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs]

    *** Note: A Jewish State was not envisioned, neither was ethnic cleansing !!!!
