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)

"They're Finding It Antisemitic," London policewoman warns anti-Israel chanters (video)

In London, a bunch of usual suspects, addressed by the familiar Sandra, demonstrate at the weekend outside the venue at which the Jerusalem Quartet is playing.

At the beginning of the video we see an elderly gentleman angrily snatch the Palestinian flag just as  the demonstrators are about to raise it on their flagpole.

Their subsequent screams of "From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free," that vile war cry meaning that the Jewish State must be eradicated, and thus denying Jewish rights to self-determination in the Jewish homeland, proves too much for some Jewish concert-goers, who complain to a policewoman that the phrase, with its inherent concept, is antisemitic.

The policewoman warns the little gaggle of usual suspects that the complainants could report their chanting as "a hate crime," should they care to do so.
