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)

Iran: Graphic Designs

Cartoonist Steve Benson totally gets it.  With such graphic eloquence, who needs words? (Hat tip: Ian G)

Meanwhile, there's one helluva scary video doing the rounds.  It, and a reassuringly optimistic commentary, are available here.



  1. Its why the gulf Arab states are scared out of their minds and Russia is trying to control Iran the way it knows how through appeasing evil. Russia did it with Hitler remember until Hitler turned on them too. meanwhile when the war comes you can bet everyone will blame Israel, even though its to protect the oil that there will be a third world war.

  2. I fear you are right, IP.

  3. This picture looks a bit like a medical image, showing "Iran" as a cancer of sorts (liver cancer?). I think it's an apt analogy, but that's probably more a reflection on me than anything else...

  4. afterthought: message from little ol' me to Israel: Dont wait for Sheik Obama and his happy little helpers, just consider that it is easier to be forgiven than to ask permission!

  5. Thanks, Rita! I agree!
