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)

Corbyn Alights on an Alibi?

Very recently, in London, a protest against the odious British Labour Party leader:

On Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day):


Many people are outraged by this tweet, regarding it as cynical exploitation of the Holocaust on Corbyn's part.  To quote just one outraged observer, posting about it on Facebook from Tel Aviv: 
"Don't you dare Jeremy Corbyn, don't you dare insult the 6 million Jews murdered, when you cannot remove the stench of Antisemitism from your very core, when you embrace Holocaust deniers & when you count as 'friends' Hamas & Hezbollah, who seek genocide against the State of Israel! "
Meanwhile, British blogger Edgar Davidson has a rather pertinent post, here

Leading Australian foreign affairs journalist Greg Sheridan, who's been visiting London, writes about Corbyn and antisemitism here

  2. Let us never forget:

    [1] During World War II, the Arabs were on the side of the Nazis.
    There was a pro-Nazi rebellion in Iraq.

    [2] Hitler’s original plan for the Jews was expulsion, until the Mufti, the
    religious leader of the Palestinians, persuaded Hitler to burn the Jews instead.

    [3] British Mandatory Palestine was a refuge for Jews fleeing the Holocaust,
    until pressure from all Muslim nations from Pakistan in the east to Morocco
    in the west persuaded the British to close that escape route.

    [4] The Mufti, the religious leader of the Palestinians, celebrated Adolph Hitler’s
    60th birthday by sending 60 Jewish children from Jerusalem to Germany,
    where they were killed and their skin used to make lampshades.

    [5] In the decades following the Holocaust, Syria was a haven for convicted
    Nazi war criminals, who were promoted to high-level government jobs in Syria.

    [6] In the decades following the Holocaust, many Arab leaders publicly
    praised Adolph Hitler many times.

    [7] Even today, Mein Kampf by Adolph Hitler is a best-selling book
    in Arab and Muslim countries, where it is prominently displayed in book fairs.
