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)

  1. Quite a few of the audience had their car tyres slashed. But the police cannot link the two incidents. Remember this is Galloways back yard.

  2. In light of Steve's comment I've updated the post to include this newspaper report:

  3. Just so we're clear. Actual threats of physical violence against Jews as well as material acts of vandalism and property damage are no longer considered criminal acts or anti social behavior in the UK.

    This would have to be the legal definition of officially sanctioned second class citizenship.

  4. Oh dear!

    Fancy thinking those darling innocents would do such a thing- not!

    M initial thoughts were that that damage was done by this group of morons. It's too much of a coincidence for it not to be
