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)

Another Prick On The Wall

“I came to the concert because I really like his music, without any connection to his political stance toward Israel.  And I had a lot of fun, until I noticed the Star of David, on the inflatable pig. That was the only religious-national symbol which appeared among other symbols for fascism, dictatorships and oppression of people. Waters crossed the line and gave expression to an anti-Semitic message, beyond all his messages of anti-militancy.”
So said an Israeli living in Belgium of anti-Israel activist Roger Waters's gig in that country, where a shocking instance of antisemitism was on display.

There's a video here which shows the pig.  (Both of them.)

Good piece by Jonathan Tobin about Waters here


  1. It's not the first time Roger Waters knockoff Pink Floyd cover band, has misused the Star of David.
    From 2010:
    Roger Waters presents: 'Star of David' bombs
    During his performances of “Goodbye Blue Sky,” an animated scene projects images of planes dropping bombs in the shape of Jewish Stars of David followed by dollar signs,7340,L-3961859,00.html

    1. Thanks. Odious. Talking of stars, you're one!

  2. another sick on the wall of lies

    Mr troubled waters should study the facts.
    Read some history books and talk to Israeli officials
    instead of being the nazi inspired hamas spokesperson.
    his famous song "another brick in the wall says it clearly
    "We don't need no education"
