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)

Palestinian Propaganda's "Willing & Blind Accomplices"

Introducing Al Beeb's Mario Cacciottolo, who's not only a chocoholic, and an Asterix and Beano man.

The BBC's so obviously leftist Jon Donnison, flouting objectivity once again with this tweet against Trump and Palin

and notorious for his own stupidity regarding a certain photograph of a dead Arab child

might be better employed reflecting on the stupidity of his colleague Mario, who's frankly described as a "cretin" in this expose by the excellent David Collier:

Yes, like Donnison himself, Mario has proved himself all too eager to act as a megaphone for Palestinian propaganda.

Here are snippets from a great post on an always interesting and perceptive blog that monitors the BBC (here):

As Hadar Sela, now of BBC Watch, wrote at the time of Donnison's Israel-defaming use of that photograph, that casual apology of Donnison's " is nowhere near sufficient".

And to quote Collier concerning this latest gaffe-outrage:
"The damage has been done. A terrorist supporting propagandist, has elicited more sympathy for the Palestinian cause simply because the BBC have become willing and blind accomplices. They fell for a PR trick and spread the work of a PR man for the Palestinian cause, undiluted. The ‘reporters’ who regurgitate the spin do not perform even the most cursory of background checks. Our taxes [i.e. the licence fee] funded unfiltered Hamas propaganda without the BBC even blinking."


  1. Cacciottolo should stick to his favorite comic strips

  2. Israel hater Melissa Parke is retiring, but I wouldn't be surprised to see her wealthy new husband being co-opted into putting on "The Death of Klinghoffer" and "Seven Jewish Children" at West Australian Opera.

    1. Sorry, Ian - forgot to thank you for this. I haven't looked at it yet, but will soon.
