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)

If Israel is "sacrificed to appease the crocodile," the crocodile will be ever more hungry. And unless the Western birthrate rises, we will sentence our civilisation to oblivion :
This is a must-heed speech!
Note, incidentally, his remarks regarding the necessity for Middle East-based journalists to be familiar with the languages of the area (Jeremy Bowen, that includes you, mate!) ...
