November 2017 marks one hundred years since the Balfour Declaration, the landmark letter that expressed the British government's support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. A century later, the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians rages on, without the prospect of a peace agreement any time soon.
Lord Turnberg (Helen Abelesz's father) has written a book entitled - “Beyond the Balfour Declaration” - which explores why innumerable efforts to resolve the conflict have always failed, and questions how an agreement could ever be reached.
