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)

Hamas Against The Zionist Enemy & Western Racism Towards The Palestinians (videos)
The first of these two recent videos is an insightful look at the evil that is Hamas and the existential threat posed to Israel by Islamic extremists (hat tip: reader Shirlee). The second makes many pertinent points, at least as far as Hamas is concerned; although grateful for his unswerving support of Israel, I'm uncomfortable with the speaker's strident tone and sweeping condemnation of all Arabs.
