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)

"Nice Middle Class White Women Are So Sought After To Head Palestinian Solidarity Initiatives": An Anti-Israel Activist Explains Why

One of the characteristics of the Israel-demonising movement in the West is the disproportionately large and prominent role of middle-class Western women, including militant feminists, not merely in its ranks but at its helm.  I made my first foray into this topic with this post

Many supporters of Israel are amazed and perplexed by the hatred such women have for a country that, in stark contrast to misogynistic Islamist movements including Hamas, guarantees women's rights and which was, indeed, the first state in the Middle East to enfranchise Arab women.

I guess many would not hesitate to use the phrase "useful idiots" to describe these distaff opponents of Israel.

Just how useful these dames and damsels are to Israel's rabid enemies is indirectly confirmed in an article by Laura Stuart, "a British revert to Islam" and an alumna of the Mavi Marmara and of first Viva Palestina  convoy to Gaza writing in an extremist Israel-hating online journal (host to such types as Gilad Atzmon, Alan Hart, and Stuart Littlewood).

She writes, inter alia:
'There may have been a time in years gone by when Muslim activists found it beneficial to suppress their Islamic identity. Solidarity movements needed white people to give them a broad appeal. A group of Muslims who identify as Muslims were easily portrayed by Zionists as a bunch of jihadis....
.... [N]ice middle-class white women are so sought after to head Palestine solidarity initiatives.
 ... Palestinians residing in exile in the U.K. find no place within these so-called Palestinian solidarity movements. Palestinians will find that without compromising either their Islam or the legitimate anger they feel towards those who oppressed and displaced them, they cannot operate in pro Palestine movements. Because of the over-zealous political correctness found wherever so-called anti zionist Jews are running things, Palestinians will be excluded from belonging to the very campaigns that claim to represent their interests.  I myself have been asked many times to tone down my Islamic identity when speaking on camera and even for using verses of the Quran in my writings ...."
And she continues:

'The Palestine Campaign in the west is totally controlled by “gatekeepers” – people of the left who maintain a very strict version of political correctness to the point of rendering themselves totally ineffective....
Do I want to bring down the state of Israel? For sure I do. Jews, Muslims and Christians will live peacefully side by side again once this criminal genocidal entity is brought down...
In my years as an activist I have made a personal observation that the more “manly” activists in the movement come in for the most attacks. The political left have a strong aversion to “alpha males” in fact I would go as far as to say the politcal [sic] left is almost a “testosterone free zone”....
Islam and its followers are the only real threat to Israel....'

  1. There's none so blind...

  2. Send them to suicide vest school. I am 100% ok with them practicing their art at home with their kids.

  3. You can say that again, Ian!

  4. I wonder how useful they will be after they have been stoned for being out alone and sans hajib.

  5. OT
    J.R.R. Tolkien’s reaction to the Nazi’s Boycott.

    What’s classier than J.R.R. Tolkien telling off Nazis? Absolutely nothing.
    “Thank you for your letter. I regret that I am not clear as to what you intend by arisch. I am not of Aryan extraction: that is Indo-Iranian; as far as I am aware none of my ancestors spoke Hindustani, Persian, Gypsy, or any related dialects. But if I am to understand that you are enquiring whether I am of Jewish origin, I can only reply that I regret that I appear to have no ancestors of that gifted people.”

  6. I am in such contempt for these females that I now suspect them to believe the myth of the well-hung arab, and indulge in some grotesk fantasies. Well they deserve the awakening they will no doubt have. Pffffftt!

  7. Yes, deegee, that's interesting but doesn't surprise me.
    Back in the '70s the radical Left was to a karge extent male chauvinistic, unable fully to see women as people.
