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)

Slaughter Of The Innocents

A certain organisation in the UK that's composed of Jews constantly critical of Israel states as part of its platform:

"Human rights are universal and indivisible and should be upheld without exception" - but then goes on to say:
"There is no justification for ... Islamophobia, in any circumstance".
For reasons connected with the treatment of women alone  - "honour" killings being just one - I find the latter statement curious.

And it's always struck me as odd, not to say despicable, the way certain leftwing organisations bash, bash and bash Israel, yet turn a blind eye to appalling barbarity in the Islamic world.

Some might attribute these double standards to antisemitism.

Some might call the reluctance to confront the excesses of Islamism denial, and even more might suggest that some sort of death wish to the West and its way of life and values is involved.

This video contains gruesome scenes, but I'm glad to see that, while much of the world shrugs, including certain clerics who seem to make a fetish out of trying to delegitimise Israel, some Christians are fighting for the world attention that the terrible persecution of their members so critically deserves.
