The 1937 column posted on the right recalls General Edmund Allenby's (1861 1936) march into the ancient city of Jerusalem in 1917. Written twenty years after the event, the article also marks the twentieth anniversary of the the Balfour Declaration - the British edict that declared British Palestine as the home of world Jewry.

Brought up as a believer in Christ, Allenby was instructed by his mother to end each prayer with these words:

"And, O Lord, we would not forget your ancient people, Israel. Hasten the day when Israel shall again be your people and shall again be restored to their land."

Looking back on that historic day in 1917, Allenby would later remark, " I never knew God would give me the privilege of answering my own childhood prayer."

By the early Thirties, British Palestine was proving to be economically self-sufficient, more on that can be read here

The British would leave Israel in 1948 - more on this topic can be read here...
