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 on "Nakba Day", an Altercation (video)

This "Russia Today" newsclip was posted by "London Palestine Action", the group that, among other escapades, pastes anti-Israel posters that look just like bona fide advertisements on London Tube trains.

They say:
"A rally organised by London Palestine Action to mark the 68th anniversary of the Nakba in Palestine, was met by a group of around 25 people from the UK zionist federation heckling the participants and screaming "terrorist" at them in London on Nakba Day, Sunday.
The group of around 100 pro-Palestinian activists were attempting to carry out a peaceful traditional Palestinian Dabke dance outside a Sabon store, an Israeli company that operates in illegally occupied territory in Palestine. However, the participants were harassed and intimidated by the group of zionists, who followed them through the streets screaming "terrorists" and chanting against them."
"From the UK Zionist Federation"?  Really?

Meanwhile, in Sydney, a Green Left snap of some of the usual suspects from the usual hard left groups on the Nakba Day march:

As for leftist antisemitism, here's Mark Regev:

See also the brilliant Mr Regev on the Sussex Friend of Israel's video that I've shared on my Facebook page; introduced by Jonathan Arkush, he delivers  a very fine address indeed to the British Board of Deputies.

These Israel-haters have linked to the Board of Deputies' website but you may, like me, have difficulty in accessing the video there:



  1. Meanwhile David Collier ejected from a PSC / NUT delegitimisation event merely for recording the latest hate fest. Our children will soon be subjected to mendacious revisionist history .

    1. Thank you, Harvey. Very very troubling indeed.
