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)

The Emergency Committee for Israel on Stopping a Nuclear Iran

As seen here, William Kristol, Chairman of the Washington-based Emergency Committee for Israel, has issued the following statement on the withdrawal of Democratic support for a vote on the Senate Iran sanctions bill:
"We commend 42 Senators for their strong letter demanding a vote on S. 1881, the bipartisan Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act, which has been cosponsored by more than half of the Senate. The bill is simple and reasonable. It would reimpose existing sanctions suspended under the interim agreement if Iran cheats; it would ensure that a final agreement requires Iran to dismantle its illicit nuclear infrastructure; and it promises to impose additional economic sanctions in the future should Iran fail to agree to a final deal that dismantles its nuclear infrastructure.
As the Senators put it in their letter to the Majority Leader, 'Now we have come to a crossroads. Will the Senate allow Iran to keep its illicit nuclear infrastructure in place, rebuild its teetering economy and ultimately develop nuclear weapons at some point in the future?'
The answer to this question must be no. The Senate should act now to deliver that answer. It would be nice if there were universal bipartisan support for acting now to stop a nuclear Iran. But there apparently is not. And it would be terrible if history's judgment on the pro-Israel community was that it made a fetish of bipartisanship -- and got a nuclear Iran."
Meanwhile, remember my post here about two Iranian naval vessels on the move?  Well, the official Iranian news agency reports that Admiral Afshin Rezavee Haddad, who commands that country's Northern Navy Fleet, has said that the two vessels (a destroyer and a helicopter-carrying supply ship)  have now entered the Atlantic Ocean and will travel close to the USA's maritime borders ...  (See more here)

And Iran's Press TV has been crowing about the BDS Movement; the comments below their video and article demonstrates yet again the malevolence of western Israel-haters including some in Australia.

But not a word from the Israel-haters about Iran's many and continuing abuses of human rights, including the rape of virgins awaiting execution and the recent barbaric hanging of a young poet (see here)
