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)

David Landau Interviewed On SBS Television, Australia

Here's a newly uploaded video of an interview by Janice Petersen of SBS (Australia's multicultural, multilingual Special Broadcasting Service) with former editor of Ha'aretz David Landau, whose visit to Australia under the auspices of the New Israel Fund has caused something of a kerfuffle Down Under, as I indicated in a recent post.


  1. David Landau is not part of the solution but certainly aggravates the problem. Globalists or Internationalists will never act in Israel's best interest and the morally inverse universe they occupy defies all facts on the ground. Suggesting that the "international" community must exert pressure on Israel and vilifying the 'Settlers' as some kind of extremest cult is revelatory as to Landau's allegiances. He would rather be invited to leftists cocktail parties, sipping the chic de jour vodka of the day, as he holds court and pontificates the Israeli/Arab conflict, always intent on drawing moral equivalencies between the two. Israel need not fear her external enemies; it is the internal enemies that frighten me.

  2. Thanks for your comment Anon - I'm sure many people agree with you. He's well-spoken and personable, but I share your anxieties regarding his views.
