In East Jerusalem meet 100 British activists who had completed a March of solidarity with the Palestinians. It is timed to the centenary of the Balfour Declaration, recognizing the Land of Israel is the national home of the Jewish people.
The way from the UK to Israel took 174 days. The marchers crossed the boundaries of the 11 States. As the channel «al Arabiya», they visited villages in the West Bank and were convinced that Israeli settlements are expanding.
Activists argue that the Declaration has brought untold suffering to Palestinians. They expressed support for the authorities of the Palestinian national authority to initiate legal proceedings against the UK.
The initiator of the campaign was the organization «, the Secretariat of the Holy Land». Its representative Elias Dais said that in the future it is planned to invite the pilgrims from other countries, and they were able to see the consequences of the Declaration.
