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)

  1. We should call BDS morons "politically ignorant obnoxious idiots", that's what Steven Van Zandt the guy who started Artists Against Apartheid called BDSers online.

    Van Zandt, who was involved in the anti-apartheid movement in the 1980s, founding Artists Against Apartheid and composing the 1985 protest song “Sun City,” told his Twitter hecklers to “go get educated” on the subject before accusing Israel of being an apartheid state.
