Boris Johnson whitewashes Britain’s crimes in Palestine

Boris Johnson – the man likely to be Britain’s next prime minister – is widely seen as an elitist buffoon.

By searching a little, it is nonetheless possible to find at least one incisive comment that Johnson has made.

He has described the 1917 Balfour Declaration as “bizarre,” “tragicomically incoherent” and “an exquisite masterpiece of Foreign Office fudgerama.”

Johnson appeared to understand the absurdity of how Arthur James Balfour, Britain’s foreign secretary during the First World War, supported establishing a “Jewish national home” in Palestine, while pretending that the step would not harm the indigenous Palestinians.
