Mossad Chief: Zionist Spies Were Instrumental In Balfour Declaration

Former Mossad Chief says that Zionists were behind the Balfour declaration

Former Mossad chief, Efraim Halevy, claims that Zionist spies played a vital role in secretly forming the Balfour Declaration – which helped illegally pave the way for the creation of Israel. 

The Balfour Declaration was sent by foreign secretary Author James Balfour to Baron Lionel Walter Rothschild, and expressed Britain’s support for the establishment of Israel. reports: The text of the letter was incorporated into the Treaty of Sèvres with the Ottoman Empire and the Mandate for Palestine.

Chaim Weizmann – president of the Jewish Federation in England at the time of the declaration’s publication and later Israel’s first president – has always been credited for his instrumental role in securing the declaration. But in an edition of the British Jewish magazine Fathom dedicated to commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, Halevy emphasizes the role played by the Jewish underground movement, then headed by Aaron Aaronsohn.

Halevy points to an official publication by the British Secret Intelligence Service reviewing the intelligence activity of Britain in the years 1909-1949 that states – based on documents from the era – during the First World War, NILI spies collected “abundant military information through Palestine and South Syria” in an effort to recruit Britain, after winning the war, to the cause of establishing a home for the Jews of the world in what was then known as Palestine.

Halevy further notes that in May 2017, a British intelligence officer stationed in Paris wrote to the director of the Eastern Mediterranean Special Intelligence Bureau: “You certainly seem to be getting good stuff through Mack.” Mack was the code-name for Aaronsohn among British intelligence personnel.

Twenty years later Colonel Walter Gibbon, who was in charge of Near East intelligence in the War Office at the time, suggested it was “largely owing to the information provided by the Aaronsohn network that General Allenby was able to conduct his campaign in Palestine so successfully.”

Edmund Allenby led the British Empire’s Egyptian Expeditionary Force during the Sinai and Palestine Campaign against the Ottoman Empire in the conquest of Palestine.

Halevy notes that the most prominent evidence of Aaronsohn and his men’s contribution to the Balfour Declaration is that only two Zionist leaders were invited to the British cabinet’s October 31, 1917, final discussion over the Jewish issue in post-Ottoman Palestine: Aaronsohn and Weizmann.

A document compiled in 1922 by MP William Ormsby Gore summarizing the circumstances leading to the Balfour Declaration, mentioned that Sykes was furthered by director of military intelligence Gen. Macdunagh, as all the most useful and helpful intelligence from Palestine – then still occupied by Turkey – was obtained through and given with zeal by Zionist Jews who were from the first pro-British.”

NILI, Halevy, writes, “proved how a handful of determined people can transcend their immediate condition, and through the power of their convictions, win over powerful international figures to support their cause.”

“As we approach the hundred year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, we should also highlight those who helped bring it about,” Halevy concludes.

    If you think there was a so called palistine ,,,,, If you consider Palestine to be a “Sovereign” and “Independent”
    country that goes back through most of recorded history as many would
    have you to believe, then a few questions need to be answered:

    When was it founded and by whom?

    What were its borders?

    What was its capital?

    Who was the President?

    What was its form of government?

    What were its major cities?

    What constituted the basis of its economy?

    Who was the Palestinian leader before Yasser Arafat?

    Was Palestine ever recognized by a country whose existence, at that time or now, leaves no room for interpretation?

    What was the language of the country of Palestine?

    What was the prevalent religion of the country of Palestine?

    What was the name
    of its currency and what was the approximate exchange rate of the
    Palestinian monetary unit against the US dollar, German mark, GB pound,
    or Japanese yen on any particular date?

    And, finally, since there is no such country today, what caused its demise and when did it occur?

    If these so-called “Palestinians” are anything
    but a generic collection of Arabs from all over the rest of the Arab
    world and if they really have a genuine ethnic identity that gives them
    right for self-determination, then why did they never try to become an
    independent and sovereign nation until Arabs suffered their devastating
    defeat in the Six Day War in 1967?
