Ottoman Turkey's decision to ally with Germany in the First World War led directly to the British (and French) conquest of the Middle East and sealed the fate of Palestine. In a monstrous betrayal of its people (93% of them Arab) the November 1917 Balfour Declaration withheld the independence they rightly anticipated and, for strategic reasons, earmarked Palestine as a National Home for the Jewish People. Ronald Storrs, a British Foreign and Colonial Office official, remarked that ''The U.K. pro
