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)

David Cameron, Israel's False Friend ...

Despite his professions of solidarity with Israel before a Jewish audience in the prelude to last year's May election (well he would say that, wouldn't he, at a juncture when the keys to Number Ten seemed to be unexpectedly slipping beyond his grasp?) Britain's slimy prime minister David Cameron has accelerated his inexorable descent into the ranks of the Israel bashers which began almost a year ago, in the immediate wake of the Mavi Marmara affair (just look at this lot, some company, eh?).

Keeping company with him - and them - is the University and College Union, whose leftist hijackers have proved their malevolent intent by distancing themselves from that part of the EUMC Working Definition on Antisemitism that relates to Israel, about which I posted last week: http://daphneanson.blogspot.com/2011/05/demonic-on-campus-british-students-and.html

I've referred to Cameron in previous posts - this one conveys the flavour: http://daphneanson.blogspot.com/2010/07/sick-man-of-europe-david-cameron-talks.html

On these latest measures, which only serve to further demonise and delegitimise Israel, she tells it best (with a masterly consideration of the legality of Israel thrown in), so I don't have to:

Update: Talking of "legality", watch this!:
