The Balfour Declaration committed Britain to the establishment of a
'national home for the Jewish people' in Palestine without consulting the
indigenous population.  The conference will explore the consequences of
this British commitment, and how we in the US can push for a just
resolution of a century-old conflict with equal rights for Israelis and
Palestinians.

co-sponsors, see www.waterjusticeinpalestine.org/blog, the Alliance for
