AMMAN — On the occasion of the centenary of the Balfour Declaration, marked on November 2, Islamic Brotherhood Group condemned the declaration describing it as “ominous”.

In a statement, the group said that the declaration, after 100 years, is still affecting the Arab and Islamic worlds. “It led to establishing a colonial, occupying and aggressive entity that replaced a majority of people with a minority that was gathered from every corner of the world”, the statement said.

The group called on the UK to stop “celebrating the continuation of the last occupation on earth” and to apologise for the humanitarian catastrophe that resulted from the declaration. The group also called on Arab countries and international community to support the Palestinians.
