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)

A Bedouin Expresses His Hopes (video)

The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has issued this video, explaining:
"Kamel Abu Nadi is a 45-year-old Bedouin from the Negev, in southern Israel, who raises camels and sells their high-quality milk to distributors all over Israel. Abu Nadi has called for change in the Bedouin society of the Negev, hoping for progress. He believes that the Israeli government's new plan of community and economic development in the Bedouin community - if implemented correctly - might bring about dramatic change in the quality of life of the Negev's Bedouin and lay the foundation for a better future for their children."
