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)

What Edgar Asked Amanda ...

Who is Amanda? And what will be her answers to these questions, and many more?
 1. ‘Occupation’  is the only criteria that you mention; what other criteria do you have as part of your “Human Rights and Trade Policy”?
2. Is denial of equal rights to women and/or minorities included in your criteria, and if not why not?
3. Is persecution of gays and lesbians included in your criteria, and if not why not?
4. Is the brutal suppression of ethnic minorities and political dissidents included in your criteria, and if not why not?
5. Is sponsoring and glorifying terrorism included in your criteria, and if not why not?
6. Is state sponsored anti-Semitism included in your criteria, and if not why not?
7. Assuming the answer to at least one of questions 1-6 is ‘yes’ then why are you not boycotting goods from every one of the 58 Muslim countries in the world?

  1. Another reason not to deal the Co-Op group.

    Families horror as its revealed Co-op funeral firm piled naked bodies up in grim warehouse morgue
    Channel 4 Dispatches programme shows casket lid was removed to cram four bodies into a van which left elderly woman's nose nearly touching roof
    Horrific moment when the wrong body is discovered at a funeral and family wait 30 minutes for the right coffin to be found

    1. On a different topic, I see the usual suspects are up in arms over Magid's article, distorting it (as they do)
