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 UK May Have Done A Vote Trade": Saudi Arabia & the UN Human Rights Council (video)

My previous post shows Netanyahu's marvellous speech to the UN.  Here, Hillel Neuer of UN Watch talks to the ABC's Fran Kelly about the latest bizarre and despicable antics connected with the UN:


Hat tip: the encyclopedic Ian

Incidentally, Australia's most-read columnist, the conservative Andrew Bolt wrote yesterday a  blistering article regarding Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop (mentioned in the above video, and also mentioned in my previous post):
'.... Just two weeks as Prime Minister and Malcolm Turnbull is already promising to lick the boots of the tyrants who infest the United Nations.
Yes, the Turnbull Government is asking for the tremendous honour of joining the UN’s Human Rights Commission.
And if we’re really good, Australia may join some of the moral paragons on that body supervising our human rights — China, Congo, Cuba, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.
No, that’s not a joke. These countries really are judges on a UN body meant to save us from exactly such thugs, thieves, theocrats and dictators. We will legitimise a pack of hypocrites we should shun and, in joining, will put ourselves at their level.
Sure, the Left is cheering, but check the company we’ll keep. Across the table will be Russia, which has stolen Crimea, invaded Ukraine and supplied to rebels the missile and the men that shot down the MH17 jet carrying Australian citizens.
Also rubbing shoulders with us will be the Saudi autocrats, about to behead and crucify Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, who protested for democracy in 2012, when he was only 17. And we’ll nod thoughtfully as the communist autocrats ruling China, Cuba and Vietnam define for us what should be meant by “human rights”.
I hope the UN’s showers are industrial strength.
Don’t believe the sanctimonious drivel about how joining such bodies does not compromise our beliefs. Horse manure....'

  1. Can you imagine how the BBC would report the shooting at the Parramatta Police station if it was in Israel, it would be "soldiers shoot 15 year old boy"

    1. The ABC's Insiders show barely mentioned the victim of the Parramatta shooting. Also no mention that the terrorist went to a Hizb ut-Tahrir event at a Parramatta Mosque. WTF does Hizb ut-Tahrir have to do to get banned?
