“In Palestine as o Right and Not on Suerance ...”
“When it is asked what is meant by the development o the Jewish NationalHome in Palestine, it may be answered that it is not the imposition o a Jewishnationality upon the inhabitants o Palestine as a whole, but the urtherdevelopment o the existing Jewish community, with the assistance o Jews inother parts o the world, in order that it may become a centre in which theJewish people as a whole may take, on grounds o religion and race, an interestand a pride. But in order that this community should have the best prospect o ree development and provide a ull opportunity or the Jewish people to display its capacities, it is essential that it should know that it is in Palestine as o rightand not on suerance.Winston ChurchillBritish Secretary o State or the ColoniesJune 1922
