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)

"Boycott Israeli Goods" Picket In Vancouver (video)

More jackanapes alleging Israeli apartheid.

The principal focus of this group's ire is the Lavan Soap Company, but they don't have a clear pitch because a couple of guys are on hand with an Israeli flag.

Incidentally, despite the obvious cold I'm surprised that one of the anti-Israel demonstrators is wearing  a hat made from fur. I hope the fabric is faux; trapping animals for their pelts is a barbarous business ...


  1. You will have heard about this, Daphne, I guess.

    Pretty much beyond horrible.

  2. They aren't the brightest of people obviously!!!

    By the way Rob, many people in that group aren't Jewish . I didn't send the link Daphne as you usually pick up on J-Wire yourself.

    Here's the Andrew Bolt take on it.
