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)

Commies Are Red, Tories Are Blue, Daphne's Received A Billet-Doux

A toast to Rod's honesty!
Here it is, written this week by someone signing himself Rod Froilan of San Francisco.  (I wonder whether he was among the anti-Israel brigade in San Francisco picketing Sodastream recently.)
 "I came across this blog by accident ... May I say that you typify many people's view of Jews. Completely self obsessed, unable to see any point of view other than your own, incredible arrogance and, basically, not the sort of people one would like to mix with.
 Israel is not a model of self-liberation - it's a rather vile little nation surviving purely through 'donations' from the American taxpayer. Of course, theft is part and parcel of the history of Israel: Theft of land from Palestinians, theft of water from Palestinians, attempted theft of land and water from the Lebanese and Syrians.
 You are detested by millions and you only have yourselves to blame. You'd think that after your history of persecution and attempted genocide that you might show just a little bit of compassion for your fellow human beings but, I suppose, as you see yourselves as God's chosen people you might have a bit of a problem with that.
 Still, what else would you expect from people country founded on the basis of a 4,000 year old myth?" 
Chas Newkey-Burden has dealt most adroitly with the oft-repeated "vile claim" Israel-bashers make concerning a persecuted Jewish people who have learned nothing from their historic oppression (see his wonderful post here) but I want to commend Mr Froilan for his full frontal antisemitism.

Sometimes, just sometimes, anti-Zionists let their fig-leaves slip, revealing the ugly judeophobia beneath.

Rod has not bothered to disguise his hatred of Jews as he spews out his invective against Israel.

He's given vent to both, full-on and up-front.

If only all the Israel-haters were so honest.

Update: reader Harvey, in the comments below, has drawn my attention to this Facebook post by Stephen Sizer today. Is the vicar exercising some sleight of hand, I wonder? After all, the top of the Elder of Ziyon poster illustrated (which makes its meaning clear, namely that historically there's never been an independent state called Palestine) has been lopped off.

Dirty tricks from a man of the cloth? Surely not!

The full poster (as seen on my template at the bottom of the blog):


  1. Another sure sign of a Jew-hater is the assumption that anyone who supports Israel and/or speaks out against antisemitism is a 'secret' Jew. See how he uses the pronoun "you" in his vile bigoted rant.

  2. Oh dear . Looks like you've attracted another one here . From Sizers Facebook wall

    This is one very blind lady. Daphne needs our prayers.
    Daphne Anson

    1. Oh, gosh! It seems that he thinks I'm "blind" because I include an Elder of Ziyon poster that points out that in all of history there's never been an independent state called Palestine. Does he think there has been, then?! If so, he's the one who's optically challenged!

  3. More from Sizers Facebook wall
    He attracts and maintains ' Friends ' such as Laura London aka Laura Stuart , a Muslim revert and fanatical antisemite . See here

    Another one is Richard Armbach see Harriet's place . Armbach is the unelected gopher for Sizer .

    1. I'm tempted to make a blogpost entitled "Harriet's Dick" - but that wouldn't be very ladylike, would it?!

  4. Daphne Anson, using the antisemitic card as a way to discredit the messenger because you don't have the ability to refute the message; the message being the accusations against the state of Israel, shows your lack of intellectual integrity. Rather than pulling out the antisemitic card, how about you refute the accusations that were made, which are the following...

    1. "Israel is not a model of self-liberation - it's a rather vile little nation surviving purely through 'donations' from the American taxpayer."

    2. "Theft is part and parcel of the history of Israel: Theft of land from Palestinians, theft of water from Palestinians, attempted theft of land and water from the Lebanese and Syrians."

    Thank you

    1. Well aren't you a pathetic tool, the "message" is a lie and the motivation is anti-Semitic.
      But let's refute your idiotic lies:

      1. The American taxpayer whine:
      All the events you object to happened before major US Aid (see also Sirhan Sirhan)
      If it's about money what's the cost of:
      45,596 US troops in Germany
      28,500 US troops in South Korea
      52,692 US troops in Japan
      Easily $20 Billion plus p.a.
      No one calls into question those countries independence or right to exist.
      If I bothered to dig deeper into your moronic argument I'd find it rooted in the fantasy boogeyman "Jewish lobby" so beloved life's failures.

      2. Land theft? Water theft?
      As the poster above stated there has never been an independent state called palestine. You can't name its capital, a single leader or its currency. As for the original people called the Philistines they were European even their pigs were imported from Europe. They faded away long before the Muslims invaded the Levant in 634ad. BTW who was stealing "palestinian land" between 1948 and 1967? And why did the PLO only claim the West Bank in 1988?
      Oh dear your terrorist heroes undermine your blatant lies, it's not a conflict about land but about killing Jews, something you appear to support.
      It's funny how you cretins only think one of the League of Nations Mandates is illegal and not the other 11 mandates, you should read more.
      Attempted theft from Lebanese and Syrians? they lost land after they started a war got their arses kicked, numerous times but I guess some people are slow learners, just like you.
      BTW I don't expect to change your tiny bigoted mind, just refuting your lies.......... as requested.

  5. A "rather vile little nation"? Do you honestly believe that I'm going to dignify that rather vile contention by engaging in a debate about it?! Israel has not stolen anything from anybody. It does not engage in killing civilians, unlike Palestinians and Islamic terrorists.

    1. I meant of course "deliberate killing of civilians".

  6. Daphne - take it as a compliment. It means you're on the map, and people are taking notice sufficiently for antisemitic scumbags like Sizer et al. to see you as a threat.

    1. btw, Shimona, I want to tell you how impressed I am by your guestblogs on News and Views of Jews Down Under.

  7. 3-1 On you've just been trolled by Sizer . Otherwise one of his groupies .

  8. I find it absolutely hilarious how Stephen Sizer keeps you guys wound up

  9. Well done Daphne - you've got under the haters' skins.
