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)

"American Taxpayers Must Not Subsidize anti-Semitism ... Stop Funding the United Nations"

The Washington, DC-based American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), headed by Jay Sekulow, and with offices in several countries, concerns itself with constitutional and human rights law worldwide. Here is the text of a petition it has initiated, addressed to Barack Obama and John Kerry, requesting the United States government to cease funding the United Nations:
"The U.N. never stops its attacks on Israel, or the United States.
Did you know that last week a U.N. body canceled an exhibit showing 3,500 years of Jewish history in the Holy Land?
Did you know that same U.N. body canceled the exhibition at the request of radical jihadist activists?
And did you know that the United States gives more money every year to the U.N. than 180 other countries combined?
It’s time we stopped funding hate. It’s time we stopped funding lies. Our offices worldwide are mobilized to defend the truth.
American taxpayers must not subsidize anti-Semitism. The U.N. works against America and our closest ally, Israel. Stop funding the United Nations."

Alan Dershowitz, speaking with admirable cogency and passion in 2012 about the hypocritical UN's anti-Israel agenda, knows what is at stake:


What a magnificent speech, regarding the thraldom of the UN to Israel's mortal foes, regarding the UN's sidelining of human rights abuses by truly repugnant regimes, regarding all that is mendacious about the stated aims of the Palestinian leadership, and all that is right and noble about Israel!

It is enthralling!

Ironically, despite the UN's inexorable vilification of Israel, Hamas has condemned UNRWA textbooks on the alleged grounds that they encourage the children of Gaza to take a pacific attitude towards the Zionist enemy!

  1. The problem (and many others) would be better solved by the US insisting that all countries pay according to their economic means today, not what it was in the 1940s.

    Is there any fairness that the US pays 22% of the UN Budget and China 5.148%? Saudia Arabia pays 0.864%!
    Seventeen countries pay more than 80% of the regular budget. The rest (180?) pay 18.390%. Perhaps if contributions were paid realistically some of the worst human rights offenders would stay home?
