الاستراتيجية الاستراتيجية الغربية لتنفيذ تصريح بلفور عام 1917م
This era of the history of Iraq and its relations with Britain, especially after the end of the First World War witnessed the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the division of its property between the victorious Allies in the war by holding treaties and agreements to divide the Fertile Crescent. Sykes - Picot 1916, divided the Levant to the influence of British and French, the internationalization of Palestine.
As impact of these attitudes, the British issued the Balfour Declaration on November 8th, 1917 stating: "His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people,…”
This declaration was made as a response to Britain’s long-term interests in planting the Zionist entity in the heart of the Arab world to divide it and weaken it politically and to defend the Suez Canal for the British interests and the protection of the route leading to India.
The issuance of the Balfour Declaration met with anger of the Arabs and popular indignation. The Muslim community in London emphasized on the importance of Jerusalem in the eyes of Muslims as a holy land, which is not less than the Holiness of Mecca and Medina. It was injustice to put the Holy of Holies in Islam under Jewish control.
