With the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict, this would be an appropriate time to ask this question.
The Balfour Declaration is something recently brought to my attention for additional insight on this topic.
What is the Balfour Declaration?
“The Balfour Declaration was a public statement issued by the British government in 1917 during the First World War announcing its support for the establishment of a ‘national home for the Jewish people’ in Palestine, then an Ottoman region with a small minority Jewish population,” Wikipedia states.
“The declaration was contained in a letter dated 2 November 1917 from the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Lord Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. The text of the declaration was published in the press on 9 November 1917,” it adds.
The United Kingdom House of Commons Library cites the document:
The Balfour Declaration, as it became known, was a letter sent on 2 November 1917 by the then Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, to the Jewish community leader Lord Rothschild. The letter expressed support for “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.”
Many Israelis regard the Balfour Declaration as an historic step on the road to statehood, but others argue that the Balfour Declaration laid the foundations for future conflict in the region. In July 2016, it emerged that the Palestinian Authority was preparing to sue the UK Government on account of the Balfour Declaration. Riyad al-Maliki, its Foreign Minister, claimed that the Declaration “gave people who don’t belong there something that wasn’t theirs.” News of the PA’s proposed lawsuit met with strong condemnation from supporters of the Balfour Declaration. Kenneth Jacobson, Deputy Director of Israel’s Anti-Defamation League, argue that such a move “will only play into the notion in Israel that the Palestinians will never reconcile themselves to Israel’s existence.”
As the centenary of the Balfour Declaration approaches, there has been much discussion as to how this anniversary should be marked in the UK. Mark Regev, Israel’s ambassador in London, has said he hopes to hold a “public celebration together with the British government.” However, the UK Government has not yet announced its plans. Tobias Ellwood, Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, said in June that given the sensitivities surrounding the Balfour Declaration, he would use the word “mark” rather than “celebrate”. Precisely what form the commemorations will take, then, remains to be seen.

Jewish Virtual Library also provides the text:
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.Advertisement

As WLTReport highlighted, Rothschilds was trending on Twitter.
In an interview, Lord Jacob Rothschild said his ancestors “helped pave the way for the creation of Israel.”

Israel vs Palestine is back again in the mainstream. The truth is they want you to take sides. But they don’t want you to know that the same global cult is orchestrating both sides of this conflict. The state of Israel is a Rothschild creation, they own it and they control it and they want what they deem to be their land back from the Palestinians. This is a biblical, political and oligarchical controlled demolition of Palestine to take back what the satanic cult deem to be their land.
