Jordanian professor Ahmad Nofal questioned why "great" Arab countries don't embrace the Palestinian demand for an apology and compensation from Britain for the Balfour Declaration. He made his remarks on his show that aired on Yarmouk TV (Jordan) on November 5, 2021. Nofal explained that Britain caused the deaths of "hundreds of thousands" of Palestinians and the displacement of a million. He also claimed that Napoleon and Britain wanted to get rid of the Jews by establishing a Jewish State in the Middle East, without resorting to "massacring and burning" the Jews like Hitler did.
Ahmad Nofal: "Napoleon tried to establish a Jewish state, even before Balfour. This seems peculiar. What, do the Europeans love the Jews that much? It's not about love. They want to get rid of them. They want to dump them on us. It's as simple as that.
"Instead of doing what Hitler did - massacring and burning and whatever - they dump them on the Middle East... Napoleon tried to establish a Jewish state, but failed, because the Ottoman state was in existence.
"After the fall of the Ottoman Caliphate, and the forming of the British mandate... The United Nations said: 'Since the rule of the Ottoman Caliphate in Palestine fell - Great Britain, come here and replace the Ottomans.'
"The Palestinians of the diaspora - in Britain, France, Germany, and worldwide - demand that Britain apologize for the accursed Balfour Declaration. [Britain] caused the death of hundreds of thousands, and the displacement of one million people.
"How many people have been killed? You British should pay a fine. You caused this. But who even demands this? The Arabs are saying: 'Britain is our friend. America is like a sister to us, and Europe is our beloved [ally]...' That's just great. Just great.
"How come the great Arab countries do not embrace this demand? All of them together can demand that Britain compensate the Palestinians. They can demand this on behalf of all the Arabs. They say: 'We don't want to enrage Britain.'"
