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)

O, Bewdy! (video)

O, Bewdy! ( as we say in Oz). This video is self-explanatory, and has already had over 15,000 hits.  I'm a Joanna-come-lately to it, and I'm not at all convinced that being a blatant sex object is in any way enhancing to the status and dignity of women.  However, she won...


  1. This as much as anything gives Muslims a reason to hate Israel. The last thing people, who would force the wearing of black sacks with hoods, want for role models is Arab women who choose how to run their own lives.

    BTW I was in Nazereth a while ago and saw a teen/20s Arab girl in tights, T-shirt and hijab. Go figger. Only in Israel?

  2. Interesting comment, David.
    And then there are the western BDSers who turn up for hatefests wearing tiny skirts, skimpy tanktops, and keffiyehs.
