Pro-Palestinian activists destroy portrait of English politician Arthur Balfour with red paint and cuttings – Video

Some Palestine Action activists destroyed a historic painting by Lord Arthur Balfour with red paint and large cuts on the canvas. The work was exhibited at Trinity College, University of Cambridge. Balfour served as Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom during the first decade of the 20th century. His merit was, in November 1917, an official document on the partition of the Ottoman Empire after the First World War. A letter addressed to Lord Rothschild, representative of the English Jewish community in which he hoped for a “national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine. The Balfour Declaration was included in the Treaty of Sèvres, which established an end to hostilities with Turkey and awarded Palestine to the United Kingdom. A decision that has become fundamental for the State of Israel.
