Balfour Agreement 1926

The British government, including Churchill, said the declaration did not provide for the transformation of all Of Palestine into a Jewish national home, „but that such a house should be created in Palestine.“ [xxii] [xxiii] Emir Faisal, king of Syria and Iraq, entered into a formal written agreement with Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann, designed by T.E. Lawrence, trying to establish a peaceful relationship between Arabs and Jews in Palestine. [183] The Fayçal-Weizmann Agreement of 3 January 1919 was a short-lived agreement for Jewish-Arab cooperation in the development of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. [z] Fayçal, in his presentation to the peace conference of 6 February 1919, treated Palestine differently and said: „Because of its universal nature, Palestine should be left on a page for the mutual respect of all concerned.“ [185] [186] The agreement was never implemented. [aa] In a letter that Lawrence wrote in English for Fayçal`s signature, he stated that the Balfour Declaration of 1926, published by the Imperial Conference of Leaders of the British Empire in London, bears the name of Arthur Balfour, the President of the Council. She declared power in the United Kingdom and the Dominions: the question of who had the last constitutional authority had been raised in Canada in 1926 in the King Byng case, in which Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King questioned the power of Governor General Julian Byng in a heated election campaign in the Bundestag. This was Byng`s refusal to respond to King`s request to dissolve Parliament and call for new elections. These events highlighted the maintenance of some of Britain`s powers over Canada as well as other semi-autonomous parts of the British Empire. The Ottawa government, for example, has not fully controlled Canada`s foreign policy.

More importantly, only the British Parliament could amend the British North America Act, the constitutional status that underpinned Canada`s system of government. This Anglo-French treaty was negotiated in late 1915 and early 1916 between Sir Mark Sykes and François Georges-Picot, with the primary agreements being established by draft form in a joint memorandum of 5 January 1916. [73] [74] Sykes was a British Conservative MP who had become a position that had a significant influence on British politics in the Middle East, beginning with his seat on the De Bunsen Committee in 1915 and his initiative to create the Arab Office. Picot was a French diplomat and former consul general in Beirut. [75] Their agreement defined the spheres of influence and control proposed in West Asia if the Triple Entente succeeded in defeating the Ottoman Empire during World War I[76] by dividing many Arab territories into British and French-managed territories. In Palestine, an internationalization was proposed[76][77] with the form of administration, which should be confirmed after consultations with Russia and Hussein; [76] The January draft established Christian and Muslim interests, and that „members of the Jewish community around the world have a conscientious and sentimental interest in the future of the country.“ [74] [78] [k] The conclusions of the first imperial conference of 1926 were taken up by the 1930 Conference and repeated in the Statute of Westminster of December 1931.
