Gaster recorded in his diary on 16 April "We are offered French-English condominium in Palest[ine]. Arab Prince to conciliate Arab sentiment and as part of the Constitution a Charter to Zionists for which England would stand guarantee and which would stand by us in every case of friction It practically comes to a complete realisation of our Zionist programme. However, we insisted on: national character of Charter, freedom of immigration and internal autonomy, and at the same time full rights of citizenship to [illegible] and Jews in Palestine.

Asquith led-Cabinet in December Whilst both Prime Ministers were Liberals and both governments were wartime coalitions , Lloyd George and Balfour, appointed as his Foreign Secretary, favoured a post-war partition of the Ottoman Empire as a major British war aim, whereas Asquith and his Foreign Secretary, Sir Edward Grey , had favoured its reform. In January , despite having previously built a relationship with Moses Gaster, [xiii] he began looking to meet other Zionist leaders; by the end of the month he had been introduced to Weizmann and his associate Nahum Sokolow , a journalist and executive of the World Zionist Organization who had moved to Britain at the beginning of the war.

Still the Arabs could be managed, particularly if they received Jewish support in other matters. During the period of the British War Cabinet discussions leading up to the declaration, the war had reached a period of stalemate.

On the Western Front the tide would first turn in favour of the Central Powers in spring , [] before decisively turning in favour of the Allies from July onwards. He was also received by Paolo Boselli , the Italian prime minister. Sonnino arranged for the secretary general of the ministry to send a letter to the effect that, although he could not express himself on the merits of a program which concerned all the allies, "generally speaking" he was not opposed to the legitimate claims of the Jews.

During the trip he spent significant time discussing Zionism with Louis Brandeis , a leading Zionist and a close ally of Wilson who had been appointed as a Supreme Court Justice a year previously. The decision to release the declaration was taken by the British War Cabinet on 31 October This followed discussion at four War Cabinet meetings including the 31 October meeting over the space of the previous two months.

These included the views of government ministers, war allies — notably from President Woodrow Wilson — and in October, formal submissions from six Zionist leaders and four non-Zionist Jews.

There was a very strong and enthusiastic organisation, more particularly in the United States, who were zealous in this matter, and his belief was that it would be of most substantial assistance to the Allies to have the earnestness and enthusiasm of these people enlisted on our side.

To do nothing was to risk a direct breach with them, and it was necessary to face this situation. This Movement, though opposed by a number of wealthy Jews in this country, had behind it the support of a majority of Jews, at all events in Russia and America, and possibly in other countries Balfour then read a very sympathetic declaration by the French Government which had been conveyed to the Zionists, and he stated that he knew that President Wilson was extremely favourable to the Movement.
