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)

Make 30th March a BIG Day: Buy Israeli Goods!

All around the western world certain folks are salivating - and it's not at the prospect of eating some juicy Jaffa oranges, Sharon fruit, or any other temptations for the palate that Israel has to offer.  Alas, no.  They're salivating in anticipation of their big Boycott-of-Israeli-Goods Day on 30th March.

Remember the old lady about whom I posted on Sunday, the one who demanded of me and other shoppers that we give the potatoes and peppers from Israel a wide berth?  Well, she was in the advance guard of this nefarious initiative, and I'm certain she'll be at her post tomorrow, even more shrill and sprightly than before.

Yes indeed!

Don't let her and those like her have their way.  Those who say and do things like this:


Thwart 'em.  For the day has in retaliation been designated Buy Israeli Goods Day, and it's our chance to fight back on Israel's behalf!

  1. Since I always - from the early days of my Bavarian Catholic education - had a problem with "tending the other cheek" and since I am rather in favour of the suggestion: "if you cannot beat them, join them", I would suggest we boycott all Irish products (among others!) Begorra!

    Quite a while ago, I promised myself to do something each day against anti-Semitism, be it as small as buying a salad bowl made in Israel. I have kept to that and I can tell you they produce good quality in Israel!

    Here in France apparently this anti-semitic boycott is not in force yet, (at least my friends dont seem to know about it), and I have a little supermarket that proudly labels some produce as "from Israel".

    But tomorrow I will not only buy just about everything identified as coming from Israel, I will make a point of ASKING for ISRAELI goods!

  2. Watched the video Daphne. And I can truly say there is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that these dreadful people are straight down the line antisemites. Shame on them and Ireland.
