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)

The Colonel & The Council (video)

See http://rt.com/news/270541-israel-un-human-rights/
In the wake of the recently issued outrageous Israel-demonising UN Report on last year's Gaza conflict which has made Israel contemplate leaving the UN Human Rights Council  (for recent relevant short reports see here and here) here's a man who's a true hero in more senses than one.  In this footage by the intrepid Hillel Neuer's UN Watch, Colonel Richard Kemp, former commander of the British forces in Afghanistan, tells the UN Human Rights Council a few home truths about Hamas.

    1. I reckon because withdrawing would give the demonisers a lovely victory.

  2. Bibi's letter to the flotidiots was comedy gold

    Following is a copy of the letter that was issued last night:
    "Welcome to Israel,
    You seem to have gotten lost. Perhaps you meant to sail to a place not far from here – Syria, where Assad’s army is slaughtering its people every day, and is supported by the murderous Iranian regime.
    Here in Israel we face a reality in which terrorist organizations like Hamas try to kill innocent civilians. We defend our citizens against these attempts in accordance with international law.
    Despite this, Israel transports goods and humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip – up to 800 trucks a day. In the past year we enabled the entry of over 1.6 million tons of products, an average of one ton per person in the Gaza Strip. By the way, these supplies are equivalent to 500,000 boats like the one you came in on today.
