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)

"Offensive Facebook Shoah Postings": Sizer "acts" (or does he?)

Remember my recent post regarding Stephen Sizer's forthcoming book on the "influence" of what he terms "the Zionist lobby" on British institutions, and his request to Facebook friends for relevant information?

Well, according to an article by political reporter Marcus Dysch in today's Jewish Chronicle, the vicar "acts" against those Facebook friends who made some pretty eyebrow-raising comments, one in particular concerning the Holocaust Educational Trust (see my above-mentioned post).

I don't know what the paper means by "acts" for on the face of it (no pun intended) I see no obvious indication that he's "removed" the worst offenders in this instance.  Moreover, Sizer might seem pretty unchastened to many, judging from his reaction and that of some of his Facebook friends (who include the woman who posted the message about the Holocaust Educational Trust) to the Jewish Chronicle article; below is a taste:

  1. He's some advertisement for Christianity.

    it's like Melanie Phillips says about Christians embracing their future destroyer in that article you linked to last week Daphne. When will they ever learn?
