Herzl to Balfour to San Remo to Today
by Israel Forever
The formal recognition of Israel as the Jewish national home became binding international law not in 1947 or 1948, but in 1920, when the resolutions of the San Remo conference were included as part of the Treaty of Sèvres (August 1920), and were adopted and signed unanimously by all 51 countries of the League Of Nations.
The recognition of the Jewish connection to our ancestral land was but one reason San Remo was an essential step toward the creation of a Jewish state. Watch this video to learn more!
By Dan AdlerLet this sink in for a moment. Before the San Remo conference there did not exist a single Arab independent nation state. Not one. The legitimacy of Israel as a Jewish state is exactly equal or greater to the legitimacy of any of the Arab nation states.

Like my ancestors before me wandering the Egyptian desert, the promise of Israel has given hope and sustained the Jewish people throughout time. Though I would never presume to speak for the prisoners of the Nazi death camps, I have heard from a number of survivors that even without any idea of what Israel was like; it was this notion of one day reaching the Promised Land that helped them to hold on day after day.
Let us not forget the stepping stones toward our freedom as a Jewish democratic sovereign state in our ancestral homeland, the very land to which our ancestors walked after being released from bondage. Stand proud and proclaim your affirmation to our continued freedom as the Jewish nation!
