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)

  1. Stuck this on my blog as soon as I saw it at CiF Watch.

    Hope that it gets disseminated far and wide!

  2. I'll put your blog on my blogroll...

  3. Thanks oldschooltwentysix

    I've just added you to my RSS Feeds and commented on a video which I hadn't seen previously. Amazing really given my involvement in "things Marrickville"

    I'll pass the URL to Daph

  4. I too will use this on blogs where I am still permitted to put the case in the face of leftist anti-Israel bigotry.

    May I express my gratitute and personal esteem for Shirlee for the way she hunts out this material and her other work. She is making an enormous contribution. Thanks.

  5. Shirlee should be renamed Sherlock, Geoffff!

    Pleasure, oldschool. Your blog looks pretty good to me!

  6. Shirlee, I think I put this on the other day, in the midst of a few others ...!

  7. When you guys have quite finished !! My head is getting rather swollen.

    Geoff, I haven't had time to call you, but I figured you'd been away as you haven't been posting.
    I will call you in the new year. We're off to Melbourne next week.
