Foreign Office
November 2nd, 1917

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 endeavors 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.


Arthur James Balfour

Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild, a scion of the Rothschild family, was a British banker, politician, and zoologist.

Walter Rothschild was born in London, the eldest son and heir of Lord [Nathan] Rothschild, an immensely wealthy financier, of the international Rothschild financial dynasty, and the first Jewish peer in England.

Present day Israel has nothing to do with Biblical Jews or Jewish traditions. This was a political move which will result in the Vatican building their city in Jerusalem.

Their secrets are falling out. Modern day Israel is not the same as those Jews in the Bible, do not be deceived.

Walter Rothschild
