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)

Blood Brothers (video)

I've just been hanging out with a friend who suggested I put this video by Tsvi Misinai on my blog.  No doubt many readers will have already seen it, but for those who haven't, it's an intriguing eye opener.

Here's one Palestinian official who's unlikely to be swayed (read more here and here)

  1. I find this fascinating, especially the genetic history. Of course as Ariella Oppenheim said, its genetic only. It doesn't represent modern political reality. True enough and considering the unbalanced Jew-hate from the Palestinian and Arab leadership I don't think this can really go anywhere any time in the near future.

    Another interesting issue is that they said Ashkenazi Jews and Palestinians have more in common with each other than Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews do. It would be interesting to try to recreate why that would be? Was there more intermarriage with the local population for the Sephardic Jews?

    Also if the theory is correct that the elites were exiled from Eretz Israel and only the fellahin were allowed to stay by Rome would that explain the disparity in the IQ scores and the educational levels and ability between the Jewish and Arab residents of the area which share a common genetic distinction? I know Raphael Patai wrote on this subject years ago when even discussing the differences between Ashkenazim and Sephardi Jews.

    Anyway it seems that Jews and Arabs, especially Palestinians, have more in common then they would all like to think.
