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)

Damp Squibs & Demons

I'm reliably informed that there were few Israel-bashers in evidence in the Sydney suburb of Newtown this Saturday, despite one of the regular anti-Max Brenner demos being scheduled, as touted on Facebook and elsewhere.  The reason for this damp squibbery, as my informant (take a bow, Shirl!) suggests, is surely not hard to seek: the "rent-a-crowd" ratbags were preoccupied with the "Occupy" nonsense taking place in the city.

That the "Break Down the Wall" and the "Break Down Wall Street" mobs have much crossover has been amply demonstrated over the past few weeks.  One of the most brazen spinoffs of antisemitism on the part of anti-capitalists has ocurred on Facebook, with a page charmingly entitled: "Jews Are Greedy C*nts"
(racism and sexism in one, huh?!)  Read all about it here


  1. Fortunately Daphne, the offending Facebook page has been removed.

  2. I thought so, Shirl. Glad to see Facebook drawing the line somewhere.
