In 2017, we marked the centenary of 1917 Balfour Declaration. It was to usher in 100 years of settler colonialism. The parallels between the apartheid nature of Israel and South Africa – both settler colonial projects in their origins – are clear. Palestinian campaigners have long condemned the Balfour Declaration as a pledge issued by a British government that gave away land it did not own. In 2017 the British Government rejected a Palestinian request for an apology over the 1917 Balfour Declaration. Instead, it celebrated the centenary.
