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 New Zealand, A Squalid Display of Israel-Hatred (video)

"Free Free Palestine" scream this motley crew of Kiwi Israel-haters, holding Israel-demonising signs relating to "children" and other paraphernalia, in Auckland, New Zealand, on the so-called "International Day of Action for Palestine" yesterday.

What they mean by "Free Palestine" is more than hinted at by the map the so-called "Students for Justice in Palestine" are displaying, and by the sign the old guy holds, with its clear reference to 1948, not 1967.

Yes, this noisome and noisy lot clearly betray their vision for the Middle East: they want the State of Israel totally eradicated.

In fact, Kiwi Israel-haters are so keen to spread their anti-Israel message that they recently advertised the paid position of " part-time organiser to help build national solidarity campaigns and promote the Palestinian struggle to New Zealanders ....The job will begin with just five hours per week paid at the living wage ($18.80 an hour) but as our regular funding pledges increase we would like to build this up over time to a full-time position".  (No, I'm not going to provide the link; if anyone reading this wants to apply, they'll have to search for it themselves!)


  1. Unfortunately NZ has a bad name in regards to Israel haters and antisemitism

  2. Auckland seems to be the epicentre.
