The Balfour Declaration, issued 100 years ago, has been described as one of the most controversial and contested documents of modern Arab history. It led to the creation of the state of Israel and the forced expulsion and displacement of millions of Palestinians from their historic land.

Palestinians are now only allowed limited self-rule in small pockets under Israeli military occupation, which is the longest in modern history.

Al Jazeera's senior political analyst Marwan Bishara discusses the most contested document of Arab history.
