Rare 1920s video footage: Arabs & Jews - friends to enemies

Watch here Lord Balfour addressing European Jewish immigrants in Jerusalem and get a real sense of how the 100-year-old Arab-Israeli conflict all started. Don't listen to fairy tales from either side, see history in the making with your own eyes.

Thank the foresighted French Jewish photographer and financier Albert Kahn for capturing the spirit of the times. (15 minutes)

Very interesting. Thanks for posting. I never knew that Balfour was a Christian Zionist.
