and its acknowledgment of the right of the Jewish people to their national homeland in Palestine, the international community is witnessing a concerted attempt by the Palestinian leadership to cast doubt and undermine the historic and legal basis, veracity, and justification for the indigenous character of the Jewish people and the rights of the Jews in the area.

The classical, never-ending question “Who is a Jew?

Claims of historical or religious ties of Jews with Palestine are incompatible with the facts of history and the true conception of what constitutes statehood.

Judaism being a divine religion is not an independent nationality.

This culminated in an October 2016 resolution of UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee entitled “the Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls,” referring to the Temple Mount compound solely by reference to Muslim names, “Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif,” defining it as “a Muslim holy site of worship.” This policy of denial was also evident in the adoption by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee of a resolution on July 7, 2017, inscribing the old town of Hebron on the World Heritage List as a Palestinian site with no connection to the Jewish people.

In the context of the Balfour Declaration 2017 centenary, the Palestinian leadership launched a “Balfour Apology Campaign.” This included a call to the Arab League by Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority and Chairman of the PLO, at the Arab League’s September 2016 summit meeting in Nouakchott, Mauritania, to institute “” a group affiliated with the Hamas terror organization and acknowledged by the UN as an official NGO (non-government organization), hosted a public seminar in the British House of Lords, condemning the Balfour Declaration and reiterating the call for a British apology.

This disturbing wave of denial both of the Jewish right to its homeland, as well as its character as a people indigenous to the area, was clearly not a momentary reaction suited chronologically to the Balfour Declaration centenary.

It is part of a consistent and increasingly vocal policy of denying the rights of the Jews as a people entitled to their national homeland.

Furthermore, the aim is to furnish today’s Jewish leadership – both in the Diaspora and in the State of Israel – with possible tools, in the context of the international realities of today, to realize fully the rights and status inherent in the Jews being acknowledged as an indigenous people.
