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)

Protest Against Lush Cosmetics (video)

Lush might be a soap company, but as is probably well-known by now, it's been engaging in something very grubby. I've made several posts on the subject, starting with the one here

It's great to see these Californians taking a principled stand, in view of Lush's demonisation of Israel.  And as the uploader of the video points out on YouTube, there's hypocrisy and double standards involved in Lush's despicable campaign against Israel:
"They set up shop in countries where it is illegal for women to drive a car (Saudi Arabia) and where being gay faces a death penalty. It asks for you to support the PLO, who has asked for death to Israel and everyone it it, that includes Jews, Muslims, Christians.
 But it seems to think that the only point to get on a high horse about is Israel, and ignore Syrian, Libyan, Iranian, Egytian slaughtering of people for protesting."
Indeed, and isn't the latter stance the usual practice of the anti-Israel brigade, when all is said and done?
