"As of right and not of sufferance"
- Winston Churchill
Canadians for Balfour 100 is committed to intensive Pro-Israel public education.
The Balfour Declaration, issued by the Government of Great Britain on November 2, 1917, acknowledged the 4,000 year old connection of the Jewish People to the land of Israel and the right to the reconstitution of a Jewish homeland there. That Declaration was incorporated into the Mandate for Palestine which ultimately led to the creation of the Jewish State, the State of Israel, in accordance with accepted International Law.
Canadians for Balfour 100 is not a political lobby. Our mission, leading up to and following the 100th anniversary of that Declaration, is to join with like-minded groups and people, to educate the world - and, particularly our students and youth - about those irrefutable legal rights that emerged from the Balfour Declaration and the assertion of them, notwithstanding the implacable distortion of history by those bent on the destruction of that State and of that People.
"The public needs to know the truth." - Founding member, Goldi Steiner
