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)

In London, Carolling Anti-Israel Lyrics (video)

Not much deliberate Christmas cheer here, but involuntarily chuckle-inducing...

In London, outside the Sabon store in Covent Garden, a straggling bunch of usual suspects who are so musically challenged that it's a wonder passers-by don't pay them to shut up.

A bloke "of Jewish background" (at least he doesn't say "as a Jew") explains why he's come along to join in the festivities: it has something to do with Israel's treatment of the "indigenous" people of Palestine, apparently.

Video by BDS activist Alex Seymour, an alumni of the anti-Ahava campaign in London.

Lyrics by (I think) Stephen Leah of the York branch of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, who no doubt had more competent warblers than these in mind when he set Israel-demonising lyrics to the tunes of beloved Christmas carols.


  1. Pessimism


    Hatchet Face Carr again

  2. The pretence is dissipating, note how he says loud and clear that the 'Zionist State' must go.

    1. Little by little, they all seem to hoist their true colours in the end.

  3. Reminds me of the self-styled "soprano", Deborah Fink of Jews for Justice for Palestinians (going JfJfP is a bit like being against sin, really) & the Green party (the latter says it all), who used to come along to the engageonline website in order to get ritually humiliated every time she put fingers to keyboard. She only dubbed herself a soprano so she could join her equally musically-challenged mates in disrupting a Prom by the Israeli Phil.

    I mean, I know that voices get distorted when thrown through a loud-hailer, but even so...if you find a recording of the supposed soprano singing, via YouTube, perhaps, you'll see (or rather hear) what I mean.

    Sad, really.

    1. A beautiful lady imho, but this was not her finest momemt:
