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)

(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

Yet she also warns that the chief target of Iranian missiles might be Europe.  She discusses the likelihood and nature of a pre-emptive Israeli strike against Iranian nuclear installations, and discusses the possibly favourable (for Israel) outcome of the overthrow of the Assad regime in Syria, which of course would mean the toppling of a regime hostile to Israel rather than one allied with Israel as Mubarak's was or effectively neutral, like Gadaffi's ...
