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)

Where Is The Outcry?: Fatwa Against Churches In The Arabian Peninsula

The Jerusalem Post reports that Saudi Grand Mufti Abdulaziz ibn Abdullah Al al-Sheikh has issued a fatwa declaring that it is "necessary to destroy all the churches in the Arabian Peninsula.”" This is, of course, an abuse of the human rights of around three and a half million Christian guest workers in the Gulf region.

Although Saudi Arabia bans non-Muslim places of worship, there are churches in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Yemen.

Several bishops on the European continent have spoken out against the fatwa.

But as the Italian journalist Giulio Meotti, who is writing a book about the Vatican's relations with Israel,  observes:
"It’s astonishing, horrible and amazing that the most important Muslim cleric in the land that gave birth to Islam can call for the destruction of churches without this genocidal fatwa attracting any international condemnation or protest.  Where is the White House? Where is Lady Ashton? Where is the Vatican? Where are the UN’s agencies?...
This fatwa is like Iran’s Ahmadinejad calling for the destruction of the State of Israel. Both, the Jews and Christians, today are targeted for a new impending genocide."

    Ramadan’s disgusting justification for a barbarians mass-murder was selected as the “editor’s choice” for the ABC’s Religion and Ethics department.

    Andrew Bolt rips the ABC a new one.

    “If Ramadan meant to excuse Islam and Muslims generally, he’s failed in this immoral article.
    Shame on the ABC editor who published it. What next: the Protocols of the Elders of Zion? “
