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)

More BDS Sickness

Let's hope the sickos show their card:

 From here:
'South Africa's largest trade union federation, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU), has joined with health sector unions to demand the expulsion of the Israeli Medical Association (IMA) from the World Medical Association (WMA).
COSATU, along with NEHAWU (National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union), DENOSA (Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa), as well as the SA Medical Association (SAMA), issued the joint call earlier this week. Organisers will protest outside the WMA today, Friday 10 October, supported by campaign groups like BDS South Africa.
In issuing the call for expulsion, COSATU claimed that the IMA "has never denounced or seriously confronted the Israeli government on its shameless use of torture", and has "shown blatant disregard for the ethical issue of medical neutrality."
The South African trade unions also accused the IMA of having "stood silently in the face of...the killing, harassment and wounding of Palestinian health professionals on duty; and the destruction of the Palestinian health systems." They note that "direct appeals to the IMA [over many years] have been unavailing."
COSATU was one of the first trade unions in the world to endorse the Palestinian-led, international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign. Citing the struggle against South African apartheid, COSTAU is urging the expulsion of the IMA from the WMA, until the Israeli body "unequivocally condemns, distances and actively counter's Israel's torture, occupation and apartheid policies."'

  1. If South Africa was expelled, it might be a win-win situation

  2. You know it might work. Israeli medical science saves millions of people. Kind of a self correcting problem in the long run. I would deny all Israeli medical science to South Africa tomorrow if I could.
