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)

Scottish Boycott Latest!

Remember SNP Councillor Jonathan McColl, the West Dunbartonshire Council bigwig who, as I posted a few days ago, labelled anti-Boycott protesters "extremists"?
Well, he's digging his heels in.

The misguided laddie has a personal blog, on which he has posted a personal statement denying the Boycott is antisemitic.

He also states, inter alia:
"West Dunbartonshire Council remains committed to our boycott of Israeli goods and our resolve has been strenthened by the torrent of vile abuse [and] threats of violence to our families that has come from people who claim to be peace loving people."
And he's also made an appearance on video... [Update: You can view it on my final blog for May, along with another video about the SNP Boycott!]
(Hat tip: Emet)

Someone really should make a video for the West Dunbartonshire Council along the lines of this one, made for Marrickville Council in Sydney:


  1. "The Tartan Barmy" should've been the title here

  2. And another councillor is getting hot under the collar:

    Re the UCU business, I posted something last week, and would have done a post last evening had not my blog played up - I think the probem is fixed now but I have not had time.

  3. Wave right back to the Councillor McColl here - looks like he's imbibed a dram or three in the photo:

  4. It appears it's much worse to be accused of antisemitism than to do or say something antisemitic.

  5. Good point, deegee.
    btw, I will post about GS soon.
