Jordanian Press stops work to condemn Balfour Declaration

By JT - Nov 02,2017 - Last updated at Nov 02,2017

AMMAN —The press in Jordan on Thursday suspended work for an hour to express its continued condemnation of the Balfour Declaration, where Britain granted Zionists the right to establish a state in Palestine causing the displacement of the Palestinians from their homeland, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The act came on behalf of the Jordan Press Association (JPA), which also sent a letter to the British government through its embassy in Amman, denying the centennial anniversary of the declaration. The JPA believes this anniversary calls for an apology not a celebration. The association urged the British government to correct the “historic sin” that caused the uprooting and the killing of thousands of Palestinians.
