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)

An Egyptian Cleric On Europe's Demographic Doom (video)

Those who followed the 1970s mantra "Zero Population Growth" (see cover at left, dating to 1970) in order to save the planet from environmental disaster, and feminists who decided not to have children at all (frequently expressing contempt and/or pity for those women who did), have unwittingly cost Europe dear, if Muammar Gaddafi (see my post here) and the Egyptian cleric in this video are proved correct.

Not that it does to air anxieties about the Islamic demographic weapon (or even to base opposition to mass immigration into small already overcrowded countries like Britain and Holland on ecological grounds) in front of the kind of 1960s/70s radicals who spawned the "Zero Population Growth" mantra and child-free radical feminism.

Greyer, wrinklier, but certainly not invariably wiser, all too many are likely to have swapped their tie-dyed hippie T-shirts for keffiyehs and to be marching with the "We Are All Hezbollah/Hamas" brigade these days, and to call those who dare to question the colonisation of Europe by persons  (including practising polygamists taking advantage of state benefits) whose agenda is very different from a liberal-progressive and feminist one by the intimidating terms "Islamophobes" and "fascists".
