Palestinians to sue Britain over 1917 Balfour act

Palestinian officials have said they are planning to sue Britain over the 1917 Balfour Declaration that laid out a vision for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Palestinian FM Riad Malki said the document led to mass Jewish immigration to British Mandate Palestine "at the expense of our Palestinian people". Mr Malki said the lawsuit would be filed in an international court.

The Balfour Declaration was a letter dated 2 November 1917 from the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland promising His Majesty's government support for the formation of the nation of Israel.

  The news about the lawsuit to be filed by the Palestinian Authority takes places in the shadow of the upcoming Mars-Saturn conjunction. At Ramallah, the capital of Palestine, the conjunction is significantly placed on the Ascendant as apex of a T-square with Neptune and the Nodal axis.  Mars-Saturn represents anger against authority while the Neptune-Node connection is interpreted as the deceiving or cheating (Neptune) of a community (Node). Here Mars-Saturn are conjunct the star Antares which Diana Rosenberg links to “keynote events in human history including the founding of cities, nations, empires and issues of national sovereignty”.

Going back in time we present the chart for the  sidereal Libra Ingress chart of 1917 drawn for Ramallah and progressed to 2 November 1917, the date of the Balfour Declaration. Here Pluto on the Nodal axis aligns with the meridian on that date. Ebertin interprets this as “the common and tragic destiny of a mass of people”. Considering what happened this is a very appropriate delineation. Pluto is conjunct the star Mirzam about which Nick Fiorenza writes:

Mirzam, Beta Canis Major, is the "Scout of Sirius" often called “The Announcer”. It  provides a message to redirect our focus and daily efforts to prepare and become ready for a greater change to come, for a greater action, involvement, or event, an arrival of global proportion (indicated by Sirius).
