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)

Hate With An Irish Brogue: Anti-Israel Fanatics Protesting Upcoming Riverdance Tour of Israel (videos)

There's an intensified campaign afoot (no pun intended) to cajole Irish troupe Riverdance into cancelling its scheduled tour of Israel next month.  See

The videos shows screaming Israel-haters (many of them seemingly not long out of nappies) in June and last month outside Dublin's Gaiety Theatre, where the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign's cultural boycott officer Dr Raymond Deane helped to maintain the rage.

  1. The kids waving and shouting, are part of 'Rent-a-crowd' they haven't a clue what it's about. They are just having fun !!

    This is the same as happened here in Sydney a few months back, at the Max Brenner action

  2. The IPSC is reputedly particularly bitter and twisted, Shirlee, so I've heard tell.
