Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

Before She Was in Playboy: The Jews Aren't Semites, says Helen Thomas (video)

Oh dear!  Here she is again, for anyone who missed Helen Thomas's recent interview with Joy Behar.  It took place before the Playboy one, from which I included excerpts a few days ago.  I have to admit that when Ms Thomas made her original remarks, which are included in this video as a flashback, I wondered whether, given her advanced age, she might be suffering somewhat from "senile dementia" and consequently confused.  I really thought that perhaps she'd forgotten that there had been a Holocaust, and was reliving a decade in her early youth.  However, it's clear from this that she's as sharp as a tack, and a genuine unrepentant antisemite.  No two ways about it. A very ugly attitude. Ugh!  She told Playboy, with tear-filled eyes, that her obituary will call her an "antisemite".  With views like these, that's a safe bet!


  1. The following is an important article about the current Western, and global, racist bigoted anti-Jewish anti-Israeli hysteria in the world, and about, involved in that, the current Western, and global, allowance of the ideologically genocidally anti-Jewish, ideologically messianic, ideologically apocalyptic, Islamic supremacist regime in Iran to be building nuclear weapons.

  2. Thanks for the link, Daniel.
    I recommend people click on it.

  3. Long live Israel!
    God Bless Israel!

  4. The one positive thing to come out of this video for me personally is that the nausea at seeing and hearing this nasty anti-semite again cut my appetite. My scales send you a "thank you" for that.

  5. Poor Helen - "The Face That Launched a Thousand Quips"
    Still, Rita, as I have said before, she IS 90!
    On the other hand, rather like the beautiful old lady you saw teaching herself Chinese textbook in Paris, my 82-year-old neighbour - a bonnily attractive lady and a piano teacher - is cock-a-hoop at the purchase of a new grand piano! She's as giddy as a schoolgirl and couldn't sleep for excitement the day it arrived!

  6. What is astounding is the level of utter ignorance of both women, one of which is jewish. Neither of them knows what she's talking about, the Thomas monstruosity spits out nonsense (jews were not persecuted, they took the land of others) yet Behar has no clue and does not question her on it. Two idiots talking on TV and I am willing to bet the audience is unaware of it.

  7. What a pity that Joy Behar was totally unequipped and unprepared to counter her. To point out that more than 60% of Israel's Jews were expelled from Arab lands not Europe (OK and their children and their grandchildren - just like the Palestinians) would have taken the wind out of Thomas's sails. Or my favourite to point out that Israel was invaded and occupied (stress occupied) in 638 CE by Caliph Umar. It's all about the occupation, isn't it?

    BTW I generally don't comment about appearance but doesn't Thomas has a startling resemblance to the hag who give Snow White the poison apple in Disney's version. It's the eyes.

  8. Great points, David!
    I too try to avoid references to appearance - goodness knows what I'll look like if I make it to 90!
