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)

"Whoever Would Have Thought We'd Ever See This On The Streets Of Sydney?" (includes video)

So remarked pro-Israel activist, blogger (Jews Down Under) and much-valued commenter Shirlee, in sending me these happy snaps.

She explains that the first two are stills from a Nine MSN video, and that she took the others herself, outside Sydney Town Hall.

 Thanks, too, to Shirlee for this vignette:

As the uploader, Cockney Doll, says on YouTube:

This is not Kabul Afghanistan, or even Mosul, Iraq. This is the main street of Lakemba, Sydney.

Jihadi flags, death chants and white pickup trucks.

 [The chants:] 
Philistine philistine (Arabic for Palestine),
Allah hedik Israel (God destroy you Israel)
Palestine is Muslim land
With the Umma we will stand
Palestine is Muslim land
The solution is Jihad
Palestine is Muslim land
Your oppression will not stand
You can never stop Islam
From Australia to al Sham (Syria)
One umma hand in hand
From Lakemba to Gaza 

Update: Andrew Bolt nails it:



  2. A great video to send to people, Andrew wraps it all up nicely in 5min
