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)

Apartheid, huh? Not in Israel (videos)

When the totalitarian Left accuses Israel of being an "apartheid" or "racist" state," it not only defames Israel, it devalues the suffering of people who have been victims of real racism and persecution, like Sudanese Christian ex-slave Simon Deng:

  1. The third one would be more effective without the traffic noise and especially without the background music. It sounds like two radio stations on the same wavelength. Otherwise it has a valuable message.

  3. The facts of the matter are that 85%-90% of the Israeli Arabs prefer to live under the Israeli “apartheid” than the Palestinian “paradise”.

    In the Camp David discussions in 2000 (just before the 2nd intifada) there was a suggestion that Israel would cede e some areas of Israel proper (within the Green line) with high concentration of (Israeli) Arab population near the green line in exchange for the large blocks of Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

    An outcry to high heaven erupted by the Israeli Arabs (and the Israeli Left) accusing Israel of, firstly, not asking the Arabs what they want which developed into accusation of “ethnic cleansing” although no-one talked about moving people forcibly from their homes but simply moving the border to the other side of their towns

    Similar proposal have appeared since from time to time, one of is dubbed “Lieberman Plan”.

    There have been quite a few poles of Israeli Arabs all returned similar results against the proposal; just when everybody thought that that proposal is dead and buried, as it should be, President Obama revived the corps with his “1967 borders with agreed swaps” except that this time it did not come from Israel but from the Israel hate brigade as another “proof” that Israel is an “apartheid state”

    There are quite a few references to this proposal, here is the earliest that I can find:
