Sykes-Picot and the Zionists


Kramer, Martin. “Sykes-Picot and the Zionists.” The American Interest (internet), 2016, May 19.


Many believe that the 1916 Anglo-French partition of the Ottoman Empire, known as the Sykes-Picot agreement, was a precursor to the Balfour Declaration. To the contrary: Zionists regarded it as "fatal" to their plans, and they worked to undermine it. The Balfour Declaration negated Sykes-Picot, and superseded it.
