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)

Daphne At The Court Of The King & Emperor

"This man is a dentist. So we can't show you his face on television" runs the iconic OralB toothbrush ad:

This man rules the world, so he won't show his true face* on the internet:

And since he rules the world, it follows that he's the king and emperor of pro-Israel bloggers.

This is just to inform readers of this blog that I'm truly honoured to have been given a weekly Tuesday column on his site.

So far I've written two posts, both on topics that non-Australians in particular might find of interest.

They both (here and here) happen to be of an historical bent, though with a topical relevance.

I hope to cover a range of themes, though, and hope I'm worthy of my place at the court of legendary Elder.
