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)

British MP Of Muslim Heritage Socks It To The Israel-Haters

"I am a proud, British-born Muslim, and I love my country more than any other place on earth. 

But, if for some reason, I had to leave, with my young family, and I was told that I must go and live in the Middle East, where would I decide to go? 

Would I choose Dubai, with its vibrant city life and soaring skyscrapers? 
No. 
Would I choose Saudi Arabia, a fabulously wealthy nation and the birthplace of the holy Prophet Mohammed?
No. 
There is only one place I could possibly go: Israel, the only nation in the Middle East that shares the same democratic values as Britain. 
And the only nation in the Middle East where my family would feel the warm embrace of freedom and liberty."
Thus spoke Sajid Javid, MP for Bromsgrove since 2010 and, since September this year, economic secretary to the Treasury, addressing the 700 attendees at a business lunch of Conservative Friends of Israel last week.

Mr Javid, who is married to a Christian, observed: 
"In Britain, we are rightly very proud of our long history as a nation. But we are mere beginners compared to Israel, a nation that is governing itself in the same territory, under the same name, with the same religion, and the same language as it did 3,000 years ago. Now that’s what I call sustainability!
Israel is a country about which almost everyone has a passionate opinion — an opinion which they’re not usually shy about sharing, especially when that opinion is based on total ignorance.
If you want to have any chance of understanding the complexities of the Middle East, you can’t just read about Israel, you have to experience it."

  1. The moral values of the Holy Qur’an brought about positive changes in the lives of the people of the region and replaced the chaos, injustice and blood feuds of the age of ignorance with peace and security. An order based on the true love, respect, compassion and justice of Holy Qur’anic moral precepts was established for the first time uzun süre sonra among the people of the region.
