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)

If You're In Sydney, Spend Sunday Night At The Movies

This speaks for itself (hat tip: reader Shirlee):

6 comments:

  1. What are "Arab lands"? Is this another term for "Occupied territories"? Someone was there before the Arabs came and conquered the people living there. Do these people have any claims to self determination today - like the Kurds or the Copts?

    Now there's a good idea for a film. Anyone game to make it and run the gauntlet of Arab outrage?

    Thanks for the invite. I will be coming next Sunday.

  2. Great... thanks, whoever you are.

    Please say hello. I will be at the door.!

    Please urge everyone you know to come.This is an important story to get out there

    Everyone is concerned about the poor so-called Palestinians, who fled at the insistence of their leaders. Unlike Jews who were forced from their homes, where their families had lived for thousands of years.

    More Jews were forced to leave than the Arabs who fled. the world needs to hear that message

    1. They also need to know that whereas the Jews took in and gave their refugees from Arab lands a new home and a new life in Israel, the Arabs kept and still keep their refugees from Palestine in 1948 and their descendants in squalid and degrading refugee camps in Syria,Lebanon and Jordan, supported by the United Nations on a privileged basis that no other refugees from any other conflict receive.The Arabs have 21 countries where these poor souls could have been resettled and rehabilitated, like hundreds of millions of refugees from conflicts all around the world. These Arab refugees have been left to rot and given the impression that they will return to their 1947 places of residence. When will the world tell these powerful Arab states to do what the Jews did with their Jewish refugees, give them a new life and resettle them among their own. Is it oil, Arab control of vital assets or just plain fear among leaders in western countries that is causing leaders to choke on this kind of response?

      How will I recognize you? There are bound to be lots of people at the door. This sounds like a great evening.

  4. Good luck with the event Shirl.

    I won't be there because I live a thousand kilometres away but I'll be there in spirit and I've spread the word. I'll expect a full report.

    It's an important story that the world really needs to know.
