This research was an attempt to explore the 1917 Balfour declarations significance, which even a century later continues to haunt the Middle East to this day. The declaration was contained in a letter sent on 2ndNovember 1917 from the British foreign secretary Arthur Balfour to the frontrunner of Britains Jewish community its aim simple: spread the Zionist Confederation of Ireland and Great Britain to Palestine. This well-known declaration named Balfour Declaration became the basis of Arab-Jewish hostility which has been a big hazard for global peace for all of the late 21st century. The announcement of the declaration assured the various communities of Jews all over the world a nation state in Palestines territory. The importance of the declaration stemmed from a pledge and understanding for the formation of a Jewish spiritual epicenter in Palestine through efficient colonization and settlement. The Balfour Declaration was therefore much more significant because it preyed on the past connection of Jewish people to the consecrated Holy Land; the link was extended to this geographical place years before by the Zionist societys much before the assertion. The Palestinian leaderships renunciation of realism putative a century year ago by the global community, as well as various Palestinian, Arabs and Muslim powers. It is time for Palestinian leadership to lean-to their era long refusal of additional and chooses for concord and settlement and what can be a well initial topic for this procedure than authorization of the Belfour declaration slightly than its primitive disparagement?
