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)

In Dublin, BDSers Protest "Made in Israel" Film Festival

More talk of apartheid and boycott from this array of usual suspects, including Dr David Landy, a Jewish academic, who declares: "[A]n Israeli state film festival isn’t acceptable to have when [Israel] is attacking every single aspect of Palestinian life, culture and the economy."

From his Trinity College Dublin staff profile we learn, inter alia, that "His academic work is informed by and informs his involvement in solidarity work, and he has served (2009-2010) as the chair of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign...."

  1. Would they protest an Egyptian film festival?
    Shouldn't they be protesting the PA for not supplying Gaza with free fuel. The Issue is Hamas don't want to pay the PA tax but of course that assumes the protesters are interested in facts and aren't anti-Semitic morons.
