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 Laboratory Called Israel" & Other Tropes: A Quick Video Miscellany

Here's a mish-mash of video links I've been meaning to put on before but which I never got around to, beginning with this video in which American Muslims for Palestine review their anti-Israel initiatives so far, and foreshadow developments in 2014.

Then (hat tip: reader Ian) there's Chloé Valdary's excellently edited footage of anti-Israel speakers at Tulane University in New Orleans; to see this enlightening video, in which one speaker contemptuously refers to Israel as a "laboratory", click here

 In the following video by Richard Millett in December, Reverend Lucy Winkett, instigator of the disgusting replica Wall at St James's, Piccadilly declares that no messages on the replica Wall will be censured unless "abusive", an undertaking that of course rings disturbingly hollow in view of the fact that messages supportive of Israel were swiftly expunged by church personnel:

Here's footage of how the crowd of Israel-haters reacted when the replica Wall in Piccadilly came tumbling down (5 January):

To see Lucy Winkett receiving the adulation of the crowd, thanking them, and smilingly giving the thumbs up regarding her church's vile stunt, click here


  1. Ahh, lovely ethnic music and dancers (aren't they quaint!) and a bunch of smug hypocrites. Meanwhile in the rest of the world, Christians are being massacred by adherents of the Religion of Peace. But they tend to be brown and black so it's a case of 'forgive them father for they know not what they do'.
