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)

Much Ado About Israeli Dates (video)

Here's a shopkeeper in London being given a tongue-lashing for stocking Israeli dates.

Europe News has an analysis of issues raised by this incident:
Hat tip: reader Shirlee


  1. The link does not work.

    Dumb police. She's the one trying to stir up the crowd - incitement to riot?

    Still buying Israeli dates. I prefer Jweish hygiene laws to most others...

  2. I wonder what has happened to the link, which worked earlier, Ian! It looks as if the link has to be copied into the browser.

  3. Copying works.

    The whole article can be summed up by stating that radical Islam is still Islam and asking who is it that is trying to stir things up?

    Israeli dates can, sometimes, be bought at M&S. Mind you, I recently had to ask why they didn't stock English apples in a time of surplus, so don't hold your breath if your local store doesn't have Israeli dates. But ask anyway, Birmingham now has some English apples. Next stop, Israeli dates?

  4. I haven't seen Israeli red peppers in my local Coop for some time, Ian - I do hope the local ant-Israel BDS coven which picketed regularly hasn't managed to work its evil influence.

  5. She said: “We don’t Muslims to stock Israeli dates” – I dearly love to know who are the “we”?

    She also said: “Every mosque in this area ... they are informing Muslims how to identify Israeli dates”; not shattering news to most of us but still an admission that mosques are much more than just a place of prayer as often claimed the multi-culties brigade.

    Israeli dates aside, what else they are “informing” Muslims in the mosques? I think that we all have a fair idea.

  6. I hope she realises that her phone contains Israeli technology, as does any computers she uses to broadcast her hate-filled message. Evil bitch.

  7. She probably casts a veil over those facts, Davie!
