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)

"The Time Has Come For The Disappearance Of The West & The Zionist Regime": Iranian Parliament's Speaker

At a conference in Teheran comemmorating the birth of Shia Islam's Twelfth Imam, Ali Larijani, speaker of the Iranian Majlis or National Consultative Assembly, has declared:
"Today, the time has come for the disappearance of the West and the Zionist regime (Israel) - which are two dark spots in the present era - from the face of the universe."

Last week, as reported here,
'Iran conducted a series of test launches of domestically-produced medium- and long-range ballistic missiles. Iranian officials said the tests targeted replications of "trans-regional powers."
Iran's more advanced homegrown missiles are capable of hitting most parts of Israel, and it was at first assumed that the Jewish state was the target of the exercise.
But Revolutionary Guards General Amir Ali Hajizadeh revealed that the exercise was intended as a warning to both Israel and American forces in the region. Iran's Fars news agency reported that the dummy target bases were modeled after American bases in the Middle East, while Hajizadeh said the exercise clearly demonstrated that any Israeli military action against Iran's nuclear facilities would result in a catastrophic response.
"If they (Israel) take any action, they will hand us an excuse to wipe them off the face of the earth," Hajizadeh was quoted as saying by Iran's IRNA news agency.
The general added that the target bases were modeled on American bases as a deterrent to US forces getting involved should Israel decided to strike Iran.
It is also worth noting that the missile exercise was dubbed "Great Prophet 7," a clear Islamic religious reference. While Western diplomats insist that ultimately Iran will behave pragmatically and not try to annihilate Israel, those more familiar with the region note that Iran's real rulers, the ayatollahs, make their decisions based primarily on radical religious beliefs and tenets, not pragmatism. They view the destruction of Israel as a religious duty and prophetic necessity.'

    A great article on Australian “Pro-Palestinian” groups from Jpost.
    We’re not racist, we just hate Jews
    “Anti-Semitism in pro-Palestinian discourse is being promoted without proper condemnation.”

    The Subversive Hebrew Language
    “But the Hebrew language has been degraded and isolated by better than the likes of Walker, Mankell and Banks (dropped clauses a specialty) and after 4,000 years, it is still here. The books written in that language have outlived anything that these three scribblers will ever pen.“

    Q&A: Removal of Caterpillar from Several MSCI ESG Indices
    How does the use of Caterpillar equipment by Israeli Defense Forces in the Occupied Palestinian Territories affect the company's rating?
    "MSCI ESG Research has assessed this human rights controversy since 2004. This controversy has been incorporated in the rating since then and, as such, did not trigger the ratings downgrade in February 2012."
