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)

PSC Branch Organiser Keeping Antisemitic Company (again)

Tony Gratrex, who was (I'm not sure whether he still is) organiser of the Reading Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) branch, has veered into antisemitism on several occasions.  See, for instance, here and here

I've drawn attention in a couple or more posts to the antisemitic stuff that he tolerates on his Facebook wall.

On January 27, Holocaust Memorial Day, this vile antisemitic post appeared on Facebook, from a group that specialises in antisemitic anti-Israel material that make its way to Mr Gratrex's wall.   Shame to say, Mr Gratrex seems to approve:

Gratrex's Facebook friends, in addition to overt antisemites, include the vicar of Virginia Water (account at present suspended), members of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, the CEO of a well-known Israel-criticising NGO, and members of Jewish Israel-bashing fringe organisations.

Surely these people don't want to be associated any longer with a man who approves of such posts as that.

Isn't it high time for them to de-friend him?

Meanwhile, from the new Bishop of Guildford on Twitter:

  1. Again though, they each have a flock. Go after THEM. If they're ok with being called out as Jew hating nazis then fine. But someone needs to make that very public point.
