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)

Mayoral Candidate Livingstone Pledges To Make London "A Beacon Of Islam"

Ken Livingstone, who was London's mayor from 2000 until 2008, when the Conservative Party's Boris Johnson became the city's first populace-elected mayor, is the Labour Party's candidate for that office.  The election is on 3rd May.

Ken's an atheist.  He's a Socialist.  He doesn't like Israel very much at all.  And apparently - as the Jewish Chronicle reports - he told some of his Labour colleagues just recently that Jews are too rich to vote Labour, an alleged statement that has prompted a letter of protest to Labour leader Ed Miliband from a number of Jews who support the party.

Ken Livingstone's courting the Muslim vote - and how!

Never mind that certain aspects of Islam sit uncomfortably with secular democracy and with the equality of the sexes.  Ken has pledged to make London "a beacon of Islam".

Soeren Kern, Senior Fellow for European Politics at the Madrid-based Grupo de Estudios Estratégicos / Strategic Studies Group, explains:

'Speaking to Muslim worshippers on March 16 at the North London Central Mosque, one of the most hardline mosques in Europe, Livingstone pledged that if elected, he would "educate the mass of Londoners" about Islam.
...."I want to spend the next four years making sure that every non-Muslim in London knows and understands [Mohammed's] words and message. That will help to cement our city as a beacon that demonstrates the meaning of the words of the Prophet."
Livingstone's electioneering tactic may earn him the support of Muslim voters in London. But by speaking at the North London mosque, Livingstone has also succeeded in reviving long-standing suspicions that he is closely linked to Islamic fundamentalists.
The North London Central Mosque, also known as the Finsbury Park Mosque, has a well-established reputation for being a center for radical Islamism in Britain. The mosque was once controlled by Abu Hamza al-Masri, an Egyptian jihadist who is now in prison in Britain for "instigation to acts of terrorism." The Finsbury Mosque is currently being run by the Muslim Association of Britain, an Islamist organization tied to the Muslim Brotherhood as well as the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.
One of Livingstone's main links to radical Islam is through an organization called the Islamic Forum of Europe
(IFE), an Islamist group dedicated to changing the "very infrastructure of society, its institutions, its culture, its political order and its creed … from ignorance to Islam."
The IFE is especially active in the East London borough of Tower Hamlets. Also known as "The Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets," the area is brimming with extremist Muslim preachers, the Tower Hamlets' Taliban, who are seeking to impose Islamic Sharia law on large swaths of the British capital.
The Tower Hamlets' Taliban regularly issue death threats to women who refuse to wear Islamic veils. Neighborhood streets have been plastered with bright yellow posters declaring "You are entering a Sharia controlled zone: Islamic rules enforced." And street advertising deemed offensive to Muslims is regularly vandalized or blacked out with spray paint....'

  1. "Rich Jews" does he mean Lord Levy who alone has raised millions for the Labour party,indeed no skint member or Lord Sugar a near billionaire elevated by Blair to the Lords. This man Livingstone, maybe he should have the word "National" before his socialist credentials. A bare faced attempt at the London muslim vote and the Jews can go to hell.


    see that for all the names given to kids born in England in 2010, nuff said.

  3. Vote 1 Boris!

    NSFW or even after a meal

    Ken Livingstone blows his top

  4. I sort of DO hope they declare London the 4th or 5th most holy site in all of Islam and proceed to cleanse it of all infidels. The look on some of their astonished faces will be priceless.

  5. Nu.. Mr.Milliband why are you not taking the Labour whip away from Livingstone. Or are you afraid that your mother, that well know friend of the Palestinians will tell you off. It's such a shame that such good men like John Mann, Denis McShane and Jim Murphy are not running the party. Aplogies to any Labour friends of Israel I have not mentioned. especially that rising star Rachel Reeves.( not just brains but looks I would leave my wife for).

  6. I wonder what Red Ken's views on this book, which is enjoying high sales in Canada, would be:

  7. Mayoral Candidate Livingstone Pledges To Make London "A Beacon Of Islam"

    "Beacon and islam" are as contradictory as "Bacon and islam", in my humble opinion, of course.

  8. The continuing saga of the death march of the West...
