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)

Ahmadinejad's Propaganda TV Channel Under Threat From "The Zionist Lobby" (video)

Ahmadinejad's propaganda news channel, Press TV, where you can see such luminaries as Yvonne Ridley, George Galloway, and Lauren Booth strutting their stuff, is in a spot of bother with the British broadcasting regulator, Ofcom.

And how the usual suspects on the Israel-bashing left are howling.

Tweets a certain Palestine Solidarity Campaign branch in a typical attitude:
 Tell Ofcom that PressTV's the one UK channel reporting what the mainstream don't. And it's virtually trivia-free.
 It doesn't matter that the regime for which the channel is a mouthpiece brutally persecutes gays, women, Bahais, and political dissidents, of course.  Or that despite its alleged commitment to cutting edge journalism it never gets around to telling us about that grim often gruesome aspect of life in Iran.


  1. They hung ( Germany calling ) Lord Haw Haw after the second world war for less.

  2. Thanks, Steve - I love your pithy insights!
