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)

Mr Abbas Ponders a Question (video)

In the words of the uploader to YouTube:
'Mr. Abbas, Israel wants to sign a peace treaty based on the principle of "two states for two peoples." You have refused to accept this formula. Israel has proven that it will withdraw to new borders, remove Israelis from your state, and give up its claims to Biblical lands. It's time for you to reciprocate. Recognize Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people, stop the incitement against Israel, and let's bring an end to the conflict once and for all.'
