Long celebrated by Zionists and condemned by justice activists, the so-called Balfour Declaration, 100 years ago, is credited with setting in motion the creation of the state of Israel on Palestinian land ... without consulting Palestinians. On paper, it was a 67-word letter in 1917 signed by Lord Arthur Balfour, then Britain's Foreign Secretary.

This is the THIRD of five consecutive shows from the conference "Balfour’s Legacy: Confronting the Consequences," held on November 11th at the First Parish Church in Cambridge MA. There were many engaging presenters. Two weeks ago we presented Yousef Munayyer's keynote address. Last week we presented the first of three conference panels, with the title "Balfour, Israel and Palestine." Today we present the 2nd panel, titled "Confronting the Balfour Consequences."

The three speakers and their subjects are as follows:

Amahl Bishara, Tufts University
Consequences for Palestinians

Anat Biletzki, Quinnipiac University
Consequences for Israel and the Jewish people

Rami Khouri, American University in Beirut
Consequences for the Middle East

Because of radio time constraints, our presentation of the fourth speaker, Nancy Murray (Consequences for the USA), is postponed until next week.

This panel was facilitated by Thomas Abowd, Tufts University, and recorded by our associate, Noble Larson.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly 8am feature of Truth and Justice Radio (TJR)) is an award-winning 45-minute (or more) segment of news from Palestine and discussion of issues relevant to the Palestinians' struggle for freedom from Israel's brutal military occupation and colonization of their homeland. It speaks from the point of view of Palestinians and those who care about them. TJR is aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, also streamed live and archived for two weeks at; TJR's modest website,, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible at or by navigating through our playlists.
