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)

Tonge Tied at Number Two

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre names the Top Ten Antisemitic/Anti-Israel Incidents of the Past Year.  Baroness Tonge ties at number two spot.

See here

Meanwhile, Jenny Tonge has been appointed by our old mate Stephen Sizer, the-retiring-at-Easter Vicar of Virginia Water to the so-called "Board of Reference" of his Peacemaker Mediators outfit, to be launched in May.

Latest names unveiled by the vicar below.

  1. I'm a little surprised by one or two of those names. Do they all know what it is they are getting into? A spoonful of sugar and all that?

    1. I have a feeling that there are a few innocents among them too, Ian.

    2. I have no idea who you and Ian are referring to but if you and he believe some people were somehow bamboozled into joining this cretin's antisemitic outfit perhaps somebody should notify them?!...

    3. Hi, Shtrudel. I think nor or two may be naive, that's all.

    4. To a committed Christian, the idea of peacemaking and mediation is central to our beliefs.The trick is to say the right words without letting on that how you define them is not the same as how they understand them. Doublespeak. Shtrudel is right, but it's identifying the deceived that is the problem. A powerful and massive emotional argument about hurting Palestinians has been deployed. Opposing it looks and feels unchristian.This shifts the grounds for peacemaking and, in turn, Israel looks bad. At this point, the well-wisher seeks to educate Israel in the error of its ways,m for the best of reasons, not realising the depth of the deception.

  4. Mr. Patrick Condell has no Jewish ancestors and no religion that might cause him to favor Jews.

  6. Many of the usual suspects, I note, in Stephen Sizer's lists. Is he still a Cof E vicar? Or have they finally managed to retire him?

    ReplyDelete
  7. He retires on Easter Sunday, Brian. The launch of his new initiative is 6 May. I dare say I will be blogging about it!

  8. Richard Bewes, the former minister of All Souls Langham Place (an influential church in central London), now attends Sizer's church, where he is a member of the preaching team. Astonishingly, he signed this statement in 2015!

    1. Thanks, James. I had not come across that before. Swelteringly hot here in Oz - I shall read it carefully later.
