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)

Antisemitic Cartoons Illustrate Al Quds Day In Melbourne (video)

“This rally must be seen for what it truly is an Iranian-sponsored hate-fest used for the express purpose of blaming Jews worldwide for problems across the globe.”

The words are those of Frank Dimant, CEO of B’nai Brith Canada,thinking of the excrescence that was the Al Quds Day rally in Toronto last year (see my previous post and also here too for a similar excrescence in Toronto this year in defiance of a ban).

In Sydney, Australia, that "Iranian-sponsored hate-fest" was marked for the first time last year, and this year Melbourne followed suit.  

Note the antisemitic cartoons, including one of a hook-nosed man (wearing a Star of David-emblazoned kippa) devouring a child, interspersed into this footage of Friday's rally in Melbourne:

  1. On a brighter note
    ‘Dry Bones’ goes to the Seder
    Why is this year different from all other years? ‘The Dry Bones Passover Haggadah’ created by venerable ‘Jerusalem Post’ cartoonist Yaakov Kirschen is available to embellish the Passover Seder.
