The Balfour Declaration was vague and non-committal in its wording. It did not explicitly promise to establish a state for the Jewish people, nor did it define the borders of the territory designated for the Jews and it imposed various limitations on the realization of its own content.
But this Declaration, issued by representatives of the British Empire at the height of its power, was the first recognition of the Jewish people's right to a national homeland. This concept was integrated into the mandate granted to the British Empire by the League of Nations in 1922 and was considered to be the key official step toward achieving a Jewish state in Eretz Israel.
