In November 1917, the British government, which ruled the greatest empire in the history of the world, committed itself in an unusual way to the Jewish people: it promised to support the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, an area of the crumbling Ottoman Empire that it was about to conquer. This lecture examines the reasons behind the creation of a climate of opinion in Britain that supported the establishment of what would eventually become the State of Israel.
