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)

Female Foetuses Betrayed By Feminists

Not on my usual Israel-oriented topics, I know, but how about this for leftist depravity and feminist hypocrisy?

A bill in the United States House of Representatives has rejected by 246 votes to 168 the Republican-introduced Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act which would make it an offence for doctors to perform abortions requested for the sole reason that the foetus is of the gender undesired by its parents.

It seems that in the United States, as elsewhere, immigrants from certain Asian countries with preferences for male children are aborting girls, leading to unnatural gender imbalances within families.  The demand for sex selective abortions derives, though not exclusively, largely from them.

In rejecting the bill, the House of Representatives is in effect condoning female infanticide.

But the feminist movement is also complicit in this condoning of the destruction of female foetuses, as this excellent article makes clear.

What a betrayal!

  1. Watch as the left abandons its professed “values”.
    Unrestricted abortion justifies killing girls.
    Hatred of Israel trumps gay rights in the ME.
    Pandering to Muslim voters trumps women’s and children’s rights.
    Hatred of the west trumps all human rights - Syria.

    Just look at the UK:
