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)

"Intifada": All the Incitement of the Fayre

How swiftly it seems to have rolled around again,the annual summer fair on Ham Common in the leafy affluent London borough of Richmond on Thames.

Summer stalls, fun in the sun ... a pleasant day out, following so swiftly on from the Richmond May fair where a keffiyeh-draped Baroness Tonge strutted her stuff on behalf of the local Palestine Solidarity Campaign branch.

Yep. Super pleasant if you happen to be one of the silver-haired middle-class Corbynistas whose "naughties" in their declining years seem to consist of dressing up in keffiyehs and spewing propaganda that demonises the only Jewish State in a world with many Islamic ones.

At this year's "Ham Fair" on 10 June (misdated 19 June in Alex Seymour's video below) the Kingston and Richmond branch (to accord it the dignity of its full name) were spruiking garments such as these along with the usual range of duplicitous PSC propaganda that leaves little room for doubt that the impression conveyed by that organisation's logo (see below) is correct:


There was also this T-shirt, in essence an incitement to violence against Israeli civilians:


As the Middle East scholar Bassam Tawil has pointed out [emphasis added]:
'A recent poll found that 48% of Palestinians interviewed believe that the real goal of the "intifada" is to "liberate all of Palestine." In other words, approximately half of Palestinians believe that the "intifada" should lead to the destruction of Israel, which would be replaced with a Palestinian state -- one that now would be ruled by Hamas and jihadi organizations such as Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.
It is notable that only 11% of respondents said the goal of the "intifada" should be to "liberate" only those territories captured by Israel in 1967.
The Palestinians do not, according to the poll, have a problem with "settlements" or "poor living conditions." They have a problem with Israel's existence. Palestinians do not see a difference between a West Bank "settlement" and cities inside Israel -- or differentiate between Jews living there. They are all depicted as "settlers" and "colonialists."
This contradicts Abbas's claim that the Palestinians want a "peaceful and popular" uprising. The Palestinians are not, as their leaders claim, seeking a two-state solution.'
The PSC's logo eloquently indicates that the organisation's aim is the entire eradication of the state of Israel.

How thoroughly and shockingly obscene that these bourgeois warriors should promote intifada, the killing of unarmed civilians by evil terrorists who target their victims merely because those victims are Jews.

  1. "Ham" fair seems terribly inflammatory, which itself is ironic, for the name of an event that celebrates the sharia inspired atrocities and mass murder of Jews globally. Perhaps their branding needs a tweak or two.

  2. It takes its name from Ham Common, Trudy:
