CBC’s Don Murray offered his analysis and viewpoint of Lord Balfour’s legacy of "creating Israel from empire’s needs."
Choice quotes include:
?It has long been a land divided, a small patch of Earth where Israelis and Palestinians share little except, as a famous Irish poet said of his own land, "great hatred and little room.
The Jewish homeland is now a state. Partition is now a fact on the ground even if there is not yet a second state for the Palestinians. The legacy of Balfour is both miraculous and bloody and bitter."
