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)

Videos On Refugees, Borders, & Prospects For Peace

Three great videos (hat tip: reader Ian): click here for a snappy offering entitled "Israel's Borders: The Partition Plan and Beyond" which comes from the same source as this equally snappy one made last year that tells in a nutshell how and why the "Palestinian refugees" got that way, and why they've stayed that way.

And click here for the famous American comedian Jackie Mason proving he's not just a funny fella, giving Rabbi Mark Golub his views on prospects for peace.
