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)

"Activist [aka Antisemitic Thug] Snatches Some Paperwork ..." (video)

"Activist snatches some paperwork and is punched on the back of the head" - that's how a scene from the following video, of the "Coaltion Against Israeli Apartheid" marching through central Melbourne on 15 October, is described on the video.  I have already added the video to a previous post, but I think it deserves a spot of its own.

That which is described sarcastically as "some paperwork" is a small replica of the Israeli flag.  It is being held aloft by an elderly gentleman in a blue baseball cap.  As a tall and much fitter young bloke in a black cap passes this elderly gentleman - who is quite possibly one of the Holocaust survivors who (with their descendents) comprise the bulk of the "Shtetl by the Yarra" (as Melbourne Jewry is often dubbed) - he shows his visceral hatred of the blue and white flag (symbol of the national liberation movement of the Jewish People and of the Jewish State) by tearing it from the obviously much smaller and frailer elderly man's grasp leaving him somewhat shaken.

Shame on the antisemitic thug. Shame on the movement he represents.

  2. It would be interesting to know who will ultimately co-opt those robots. But by then, it might be too late.

    Robots is a good analogy, Sylvia!

  4. No, Shirl, no luck - in the words of some versifier or other:
    "My eyes are dim, I cannot see,
    I haven't got my specs with me."

  5. Yes they are good at whacking Israeli flags.
    We were at one of these events with a tiny flag it was smacked from our hands and stomped on.
    They like to assault anyone who shows any form of support for Israel. They are feral bastards.

    Brave old man.
