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)

The Victims Of Gaza (video)

Here's a video relating to the current attacks by Gazan terrorists on civilians in southern Israel.  It includes statements by media spokespersons Mark Regev (from the Prime Minister's Office), and Lieutenant-Colonel Avital Leibovich of the IDF:

From that remarkable blogger, Challah Hu Akbar, I learned earlier that at least a score of the individuals killed by the Israeli counter-strikes were terrorists: six from the Popular Resistance Committees (AhmedHanani, Zuhiral-Qaisi, MahdiAbu Shawish, Mansour Kamal Abu Nuseira, Hussein Barham Al-Breim, AhmadDeeb Salem) and fourteen from Islamic Jihad (FayiqSaad, MuatasimHajjaj, AhmadHajjaj, ShadiSayqali, UbeidGharabli,  MuhammadMaghari, HazimQureiqi, Muhammadal-Ghamry, MuhammadHararah, MahmoudNajim, RaafatAbu Eid, HamadahSalman Abu Mutlaq, MuhammadThaher, Bassamal-Ajla).  Other victims were four civilians (AyoubUseila, Adelal-Issi, MohammadHassoni, FayzaHassoni; Adel al-Issi may have been used, as the Hassonis seem to have been, as human shields).
