Netanyahu chats with Trump, Putin, Merkel at Paris WWI events

French President Emmanuel Macron hosted 130 world leaders and dignitaries for lunch at the presidential Elysee Palace after the ceremonies marking the centenary of the World War I Armistice. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the head table chatted with some of the world leaders, including President Donald Trump, President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The prime minister said his conversation with Putin was “good and to the point,” but declined to elaborate. DEBKAfile:  Since Putin and Trump are at odds on key issues, including Syria, it is had to imagine that Netanyahu’s conversation with Putin yielded substantial results. Its importance lay in its taking place.

    The British government official declaration commonly know as The Balfour Declaration was initially published on November 2, 1917 . So, these November ceremonies are also marking 101 years for The Balfour Declaration .

      the real Balfour declaration?

      “The contradiction between the letter of the Covenant of the League of Nations and the policy of the Allies is even more flagrant in the case of the independent nation of Palestine than in that of the independent nation of Syria. For, in Palestine we do not propose even to go through the form of consulting the wishes of the present inhabitants of the country. The four great powers are committed to Zionism and Zionism, be it right or wrong, good or bad, is rooted in age-long tradition, in present needs, in future hopes, of far profounder import than the desires and prejudices of the 700,000 Arabs who now inhabit that ancient land. In my opinion that is right. What I have never been able to understand is how it can be harmonised with the Anglo-French declaration, the Covenant, or the instructions to the commission of Enquiry… In fact, so far as Palestine is concerned, the powers have made no statement of fact that is not admittedly wrong, and no declaration of policy which, at least in the letter, they have not always intended to violate.”
      (Arthur James Balfour, August 1919)

    On 29 November 1947, the General Assembly adopted Resolution 181 greatly in favor of the dumb Arabs. But the drunk The Arab League sheiks and the Arab Higher Committee of Palestine vodka payed bandits rejected it.

    Now they put the blame on the too small ice cubes in such a good and drinkable Irish whiskey.

    Arabs are dumbos, that’s it!
