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)

"Islamophobia" Crude (video)

There's nothing subtle about this video, a heavy-handed satirical commentary on Islamic extremism in Britain.  Prompting the fear and resentment which lead to the making of such videos are the existence of Muslim supremacist groups proclaiming that Britain's destiny is to be a sharia-dominated state, the existence of Islamic enclaves in parts of Britain that are effectively "no-go" zones (and not just in London) for the "kuffar", the imposition of gender segregation at civil institutions, the activities of Muslim gangs in major cities grooming vulnerable underage non-Muslim girls for abuse, the surreptitious widespread imposition of halal meat onto unwitting elements within the general population (schools, barracks, takeaways, even parliamentary canteens!), the emergence of sharia courts and a sharia-compliant banking system, and of course the gross misogyny and gruesome violence that characterises so much of the Islamic world.

Regarding the "Islamophobia" that underlies this video and similar expressions of anxiety about the future of western societies, "You might expect to find such ideas among some of the more benighted members of the general community, but not among fellow-Jews," inveighed a Jewish far-left activist in the correspondence column of the Australian Jewish News not so long ago regarding a friend's opposition to Muslim immigration: the latter had warned that such immigration, if left unchecked, threatened to become a "tsunami that threatens to engulf us all".

 None so blind as those who will not see.
