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)

"Why Can't A Little State The Size Of El Salvador Be Allowed To Exist?" (video)

The above question is posed in this excellent video featuring author and broadcaster Dennis Prager.  It's been around a while and has had many hits, but deserves to be brought to the attention of anyone who might hitherto have overlooked it.


This, too, short and snappy, is worth a look!


Finally, I don't know who Aussie Ernest Taylor is, but click here to see why he's a mensch.

  1. I have a friend who, until recently was not really aware of the "Israel" question. She is a happy-go-lucky Aussie girl, very much into sport and the nicer things of life. I started to speak to her about Israel and the demonisation of this "embattled little state" in my endeavour to do at least "one thing against Judenhass" every day. Today,(out of the Australian blue) she sent me a cc of the following email she had sent:

    "Sent: Friday, 8 June 2012 10:50 AM
    To: 'nbentley@english.upenn.edu'
    Cc: 'amkaplan@english.upenn.edu'
    Subject: "HOW TEACHERS CAN MOST EFFECTIVELY DEMONIZE ISRAEL IN EVERY CLASSROOM"

    I read with sheer disbelief the above quote from your University, in particular KAPLAN. Mr Taylor’s response, states quite correctly you are free to have these thoughts, however, using your position of power to influence the fertile minds of your students to this end, is reprehensible. I hope and pray you have been misquoted.

    Yours faithfully,..."


    I had no idea that she was even aware of the "United with Israel" site. I am chuffed to bits, because, once again it proves that we CAN effect change, even in small ways! :)
