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)

"The Ground Will Tremble, The Dust Will Fly": Gaza Convoy fundraising gig in Kiwiland

"In our thousands, in our millions, we are all Palestinians" goes the chorus of one of the songs in this gig in Auckland, New Zealand.  "Until Palestine is free, this world will never be at peace" goes another line.
The inveterate Israel-bashers and their naive well-meaning cronies are gathering funds for a new Gaza Convoy in December, and in the wake of Moubarak's downfall vow to force the Rafah Crossing to open permanently.
