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)

Professor William Jacobson Speaks About The Academic Boycott (video)

This informative video is six months old but if you haven't seen it and want an expert's view of the BDS movement, particularly the academic boycott in the United States, it's a must listen-to (I say "listen-to" because since the professor is in effect a "talking head' speaking from a lectern you don't need to be glued to the screen to appreciate its insights).

For background on the lecture, and the footage which Professor Jacobson refers to at the beginning of his talk (regarding student BDSers on campus), see here
