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)

"As a Growth Industry Antisemitism Has Become Immense ... Jeremy Corbyn is ... a Primitive Troglodyte"

"We are living in a crazy time ... in a world of total and absolute chaos ... As a growth industry antisemitism has become immense ... Europe is under siege ... Jeremy Corbyn is promoting the worst form of leftist antisemitism and he himself is a primitive troglodyte ... "

That's just part of Isi Leibler's compelling introduction to Dr Manfred Gerstenfeld discussing "the British Disease".

To quote the uploader of this long video, the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs:
"In recent months, a large number of extreme anti-Semitic expressions by elected representatives of the British Labour Party have come to light. The publicity has forced Labour, which is under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn, to investigate antisemitism, Islamophobia, and racism in the party. The antisemitism issue is overshadowed by the many consequences of Brexit, which include a major crisis in Labour.
Dr Manfred Gerstenfeld is the former Chairman of the Board of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. His many books deal with European-Israeli and European-Jewish issues. He received the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Journal for the Study of Anti-Semitism, and the International Leadership Award by the Simon Wiesenthal Center."

 In this recently issued video from the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, Adam Shay, a Jerusalem Center expert on the cultural boycott of Israel, answers Lenny Ben-David's question "Has the Cultural Boycott of Israel Peaked?"

To quote the uploader:
"In the 2016 concert season, there is no shortage of international performers coming to Israel and virtually all categories are represented. The South African rave-rap duo Die Antwoord, one of the hottest names around, was a prime target for BDS activity. However, the band paid little or no attention to this and once they took the stage in Tel Aviv they told the boycott activists exactly what they thought of them.
Guitar icon Carlos Santana had cancelled his performance in Israel back in 2010 when the cultural boycott was at its height. This is why Santana's recent performance in Tel Aviv was so important. The fact that a performer of iconic status, who has in the past cancelled a performance, now feels it is safe and legitimate to return, tells us that as far as the cultural boycott is concerned, the worst may very well be behind us."

As for the craziness that engulfs Europe, this new article makes grim reading indeed.

  1. Will the generals eventually take over Europe from the treacherous political elite before the light goes out completely?

  2. Slightly off topic ( as usual ) but this post from David Collier is one of the most important scoops to come out of the on going battle against BDS for some time .
    David attended a talk by the execrable Ilan Pappe last week in which Pappe kindly pulled the rug from under the BDS . He confirms what we have always suspected , that there was never a call for Boycott from within Palestinian society . It was a lie but the hard left brigade needed it to be compared to the South Africa model which was a call for boycott from within South African society .
    Pappe in this one short clip disproves it . We should recognise his vanity and narcissism which meant he could not help himself in claiming responsibility for the campaign
    Pappe is a failed revisionist historian . Now he is proved a liar too. How he has secured tenure at a red brick university is anyone's guess

    1. You're absolutely right, Harvey. And Pappe is not the only anti-Israel academic at UK universities who teach courses that are very close to their field of propaganda. It does raise the question whether they are objective in their teaching and marking. More I am not at liberty to say.
