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 Material Girl's "Spiritual Decision" (video)

Madonna has announced that her World Tour will commence in Israel (Tev Aviv) on 29 May.

I guess her devotion to Israel, via her interest in Kabbala, is too intense for the BDS fanatics to try to cajole her into changing her mind, as they usually do when a show biz figure announces - shock, horror! - that they intend to perform in the Jewish State.

Concert organiser Shuki Weiss observes that the so-called Cultural Boycott of Israel (which he of course opposes) is pointless, for a very good reason:
"If there's a political involvement from the artist's side, this is the only country in this region where you can say and express your message because it's a complete democracy, and you're very welcome to do so."
