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)

In The Land Where Six Is Sex, Youngsters Recite Their Party Pieces Regarding "The Israeli Terrorist State" (video)

In case non-antipodean readers have ever wondered, it's the pronunciation of the vowel i that separates the Kiwi from the Aussie accent, so that in the former "six" sounds something like "sex".

Here's a bunch of Kiwi youngsters sounding off with sanctimonious bigotry about the (imagined) nature of "Apartheid Israel".

"There is no question that the trialling of these nineteen activists is a political statement, a statement that freedom of speech is only conditional, in so far as it does not question the legitimacy of the Israeli terrorist state," intones one.

"The state that's very existence is defined by segregation and discrimination, displacing entire communities and murdering innocent Palestinians since its conception, " declares another.

"Ethnic cleansing and genocide of Palestinians, the breaking of international law and plundering of Palestinian natural resources. That is what the state of Israel represents," says a third.

And so on until: "We support these nineteen activists in their struggle to bring the Intifada to our side of the world because the Intifada cannot only be in Palestine, it needs to begin right here, right now."

Ah, well, best not to be too hard on them. They're very young, and many of us make fools of ourselves when we're young and immature and impressionable...

For more leftist nonsense from Down Under, here's a feast of viewing, featuring such luminaries as John Pilger.


  1. Feel free to suicide bomb Christchurc and Wellington then. Put your money where your mouth is.

    This is useful for illustrating the difference between outright demonizing Israel and merely "criticizing Israeli government policies."

    I agree with your penultimate paragraph; I feel fortunate that some of the things I used to say at that age haven't come back to haunt me later (although none of it was as objectionable as what these kids are saying).

  3. I wish them success with bringing the Intifada to their home. Although I can't imagine that these young people actually want women driving their children home from school stoned; innocent children and families murdered when buses and restaurants are bombed, and rockets fueled by anti-Israel hatred regularly slam into civilian populations.

    I guess they don't understand that the Intifada is more than wearing a keffiyah and chanting anti-Semitic rhetoric. Good luck with all that...

  4. These Kiwi useful idiots are support racist blood libel bigots who shout: “Max Brenner, come off it, there’s blood in your hot chocolate”.

    Re: being young and stupid, I don’t think “Red Diaper babies” ever grow-up.

    The BDS angry mob will be crowing about a UK (Labour Party affiliated) co-op grocer distancing itself from four Israeli companies. They only have a 5% market share so it’s small potatoes.

  6. ET I'm with you. NZ is well known for it's antisemitism. They've had all sorts of issues over the last couple of years with well known personalities coming out with antisemitic comments.

    During Operation Cast Lead Israeli tourists were physically thrown out of shops.

    A journalist by the name of Matt McCarten, I've had a couple of major arguments with and written to the Editor of the newspaper he works for. All to no avail

    1. I could almost believe that NZ is "The Norway of the South", Shirlee, whrn I see the indoctrination of these kids.

      Meanwhile, another county heard from:

  7. Thanks for the comments. Sorry I've been tardy in acknowledging them.
