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 Entire Geostrategic Situation In The Middle East Is Collapsing All Around Us": John Bolton (video)

Here's the USA's former ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton assailing Obama's clueless non-response to the real and present danger.  Inter alia, Bolton points out that although Mubarak was no "Jeffersonian democrat" the USA should not have abandoned its ally.  He declares that regarding the Iranian nuclear threat "Israel should have acted years ago".  And he argues that before promising aid to the Syrian rebels the USA should tell the rebels that an "absolute precondition" of such aid will be that the rebels turn over to the USA Assad's biological and chemical weapons that fall into their hands.

  2. A friend, whose judgement I usually trust, was suggesting the other day, that Obama actually WANTS the Muslim Brotherhood in power and is deliberately working towards this goal.

    As to obtaining a "promise" from the so-called "rebels" (I always think "rebel" has too generous a ring for what many of them are) of abandonning the biological and chemical weapons that fall into their hands, how much would such a promise be worth?

    What is John Bolton's job now? I could see him, teaming up with Col. West as a Leader team that would be good for the US, Israel and the rest of the Western world.
