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)

"One Day, Inshallah, There Will Be Free Palestine"

A bunch of usual suspects (the four-person Kia Ora Gaza convoy team 2012) arriving back in Auckland from a trip to Hamastan-on-Sea described the warm welcome they received there. (Well, they would have, wouldn't they?)

They also revealed their "mission" of building a "lifeline" from Cairo to Gaza.

As the video here shows, it seems that "team captain" Roger Fowler brought back a local phrase, in addition to a footie cup.

Kia Ora Gaza links to a video about the influence of "rightwing billionaires" (yeah, we geddit) on Obama ...


For the very nasty taste of anti-Israel propaganda from BBC World (this example from some years ago), see the (jubilant) Kia Ora Gaza post here

Does BBC World share the vow "One Day, Inshallah, There Will Be Free Palestine"?

From the river to the sea?

It certainly sometimes looks like it.

    Kia Ora Gaza are no fun, they never publish my comments, or appear to have any comments at all (like a lot of “pro-pal” sites). Maybe they realised Vittorio.Arrigoni@gaza.com was a fake email?

    Speaking of commies a must read article:
    The Cold War’s Arab Spring
    Stolen Kremlin records show how the Soviets, including Gorbachev, created many of today’s Middle East conflicts
    http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/103576/the-cold-wars-arab-spring?all=1

    It explains how a never elected amateur like Catherine Ashton can become EU Foreign Minister.

  2. Intentions are key, and these actions reveal them quite well.

    As to contracts and agreements between governmental organizations, sometimes they must be vague in order to get ratified.

    But if the Palestinians are going to offer interpretations, there's no need for Israel not to as well, and the Jordan aspect to Palestine seems a strong one.

    I think Israel should make a proposal to the Security Council and see if it cannot get these issues out on the table.
