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)

Flag, Keffiyeh, Apartheid, Gaza: Clueless On Campus In Toronto (video)

Here's a video made by anti-Israel elements ("Students Against Israeli Apartheid") at the University of Toronto, where (more here) graduate students have recently voted in favour of BDS.

Most of the students in the video are unable to provide cogent answers to the four questions posed.  Such ignorance suggests an apathy towards the conflict, yet the respondents' little knowledge may well be a dangerous thing, easily manipulated into hostility towards Israel by the demonisers' propaganda.

Needless to say the "correct" answers include the "Israel-is-an-apartheid state" smear.


  1. Off topic, this should be better known. It's just one of the good things Israel does, and it's great to know that this Turkish politician felt himself to be in such safe hands:

  2. One thing you can do is demand they explain chapter and verse HOW they believe in this apartheid twaddle. I need them to point to the laws which include but are not limited to

    Restrict where Arabs can live
    Restrict where or even if Arabs can go to school
    Restrict which hospitals Arabs can use
    Eliminate all rights for Arabs to vote and hold office
    Restrict and criminalize whom Arabs may marry
    Restrict which jobs and professions Arabs may take

    Theses freshly scrubbed fools need to be able to point me to those laws. Because that's what apartheid was, a formal comprehensive set of laws which were rigorously enforced.

    It's their term, I simply demand they demonstrate actual evidence of it in their own words.

  4. Clearly, they learn the Israeli apartheid shtick from their Jew-hating parents and then grow up to be obnoxious, inarticulate, stupid, anti-Semitic, slugs. Their inbred and carefully cultivated prejudice does not permit them to spend their copious free time protesting against terror and human rights violations in the Arab states and in Gaza and the PA.

    Of course, these are the families that live in lily-white neighborhoods while espousing the most progressive philosophies. As my father would have said - Get a job and grow up.
