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)

Airhead Ashleigh (video)

Lots and lots and lots of people have seen this already, but I've only just caught up with it.

Another discussion on the same theme:


  1. This is a good roundup of her cheerleading for Hamas

    "when talking about the murders in the Har Nof synagogue in Jerusalem. She explained, “Soldiers come in all forms… and when you have mandatory conscription and service in Israel, effectively the Palestinians will say, ‘it’s war against everyone, because everyone is a soldier.”
    When Dershowitz replied “Well, that’s just racism and bigotry. To say that everyone is a soldier,” Banfield interrupted in protest, saying, “But everybody is.” Dershowitz made his point, “Not everybody is… The law of war is very clear. You can’t kill a two year-old child claiming, ‘he’s going to be a soldier.’”
    In an interview about his dialogue with Banfield, Dershowitz said, “For her to raise this outrageous argument in the context of the synagogue shooting, it really required me to control my temper.”
