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)

Sarsour's Orwellianism (video)

American poster girl for the Islamophile anti-Israel left Linda Sarsour last month in Sacramento with some truly Orwellian claims regarding Jerusalem ("Jerusalem is and always will be the capital of Palestine"), Islam's prophet Mohammed ("He was a human rights activist") and Islam itself ("Our religion has always been ... feminist").

To quote the uploader, Memri.org:
'On December 2, 2018, American political activist Linda Sarsour spoke at the 2018 Salam Annual Banquet, which was held at the Salam Community Center in Sacramento, CA.
 She criticized President Trump for moving the American embassy to Jerusalem, saying: "I declare to all of you here today in Sacramento that Jerusalem is and always will be the capital of Palestine."
 She said that the Trump administration is fascist and encouraged Muslims to become involved in politics even if their mosques usually avoid politics, because simply being Muslim is a political act.
 She said that the Prophet Muhammad was a human rights activist, and that there is no need for workers' rights movements, environmental justice movements, Black Lives Matter movements, anti-racism, or feminism because Islam has taught these values long before they were hashtags or movements.
 She added: "I don't need people in the West, people in Europe, or people in the United States… to teach me what feminism is."
 The video of Sarsour's speech was uploaded to the Salam Center's YouTube channel on December 13, 2018.'

  1. In 1958, former director of UNRWA
    Ralph Galloway declared angrily while in Jordan:

    “The Arab states do not want to
    solve the [Palestinian] refugee problem.

    They want to keep it as an open sore,
    as an affront to the United Nations,
    and as a weapon against Israel.

    Arab leaders do not give a damn
    whether Arab refugees live or die.”

    “One crucial truth, among the many
    which have been obscured or deprecated,
    is that there have been as many Jewish
    refugees who fled or were expelled
    from the Arab countries [in year 1948]
    as there were Arab refugees from Israel,
    and that the Jews left of necessity
    and in flight from danger.”

    ===================================

    Hitler’s crimes against the Jews have
    been frequently justified in Arab writings
    and pronouncements.

    In the 1950s, Minister Anwar Sadat
    published an open letter to Hitler,
    hoping he was still alive and
    sympathizing with his cause.

    Important Arab writers and political
    figures have said Hitler was
    “wronged and slandered…”

    Or that Hitler wanted to “save …
    the world from this malignant evil…”

    1. I remember the sensation the Joan Peters book caused when it was first published - it's easy to forget its existence, for comparatively little seems to be heard of it today.

  2. One of my goals is to remind people about important facts that they have forgotten.

    ===================================

    UNRWA [United Nations Relief and Works Agency] altered its definition of refugees to include those people who had lived in Palestine a minimum of only two years preceding the 1948 conflict [in which Israel became an independent state].

    “Notwithstanding the facts, the Arab world has assiduously worked to build the myth that no jobs were available in Arab lands for Arab refugees in 1948 or since…”
