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)

Iran's Nuclear Threat To The West (videos) (updated; includes Bibi's warning)

Below is a happy little video uploaded a few days ago.

And here's something of more immediate relevance to Israel. As Bibi warns:

Incidentally, in case you haven't seen the video elsewhere, here is UN Watch's Hillel Neuer talking at the UN Human Rights Council in July about the Iranian regime's promotion of antisemitism:

"Now, in this chamber we just heard Iran declare itself opposed to incitement to racism.
Yet at an international conference in Tehran, part of the U.N. campaign against drug trafficking, Iranian Vice President Mohammad-Reza Rahimi shocked diplomats, as well as many Iranians present, by saying that the Talmud, a central text of Judaism, was responsible for the spread of illegal drugs around the world.
He also made other accusations against Jews and Judaism, echoing those used by Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
Can anyone here think of another country whose leaders openly incite to racism at international conferences?
We welcome the denunciation of Mr. Rahimi’s remarks by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and today’s statement by Yury Fedotov, the head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, expressing dismay and concern during his meeting in Vienna with an Iranian diplomat.
But U.N. member states must speak out as well. To those who know what racism means, I ask: How can Iran be allowed to host the Non Aligned Movement Center for Human Rights and Cultural Diversity?
Is not the state advocacy of religious and racial hatred the very opposite of human rights and cultural diversity?
Will the victims of prejudice allow one of their own members to do the same?"


  1. The EMP threat is accurate, but it has been known about for many years. It is to be hoped that our political masters have hardened vital facilities against that threat. Essentially, the bomb creates an Elector-Magnetic Pulse which reaches a large area by detonating at high altitude. See:

    It is possible to protect against it, but have we? Just to cheer you up a little bit more, similar effects can be achieved by extra-large solar flares. It is something all of western civilisation needs to protect against. The less sophisticated societies will survive most easily.
