Jordanian professor says Britain caused the death of “hundreds of thousands” of Palestinians and the displacement of a million because of the Balfour Declaration.

On a Jordanian TV program, Ahmad Nofal, a professor of Islamic Law at the University of Jordan, wondered why the “great” Arab countries don’t embrace the Palestinian demand for an apology and compensation from Britain over the Balfour Declaration.

Nofal claimed that Britain caused the death of “hundreds of thousands” of Palestinians and the displacement of a million.

He also said that Britain — and Napolean — wanted to get rid of the Jews by establishing a Jewish state in the Middle East without resorting to “massacring and burning” them, like Hitler did.
